He can help space the floor more and bring the center further out. They don't even bother having a man on Williams near the three line.


He's an offensive upgrade no doubt. Anyone know if Wagner is good at boxing out like Brook Lopez?

he's not. strength down low was his weakness coming into the draft

I'm surprised they called him up this quickly. I do not expect much from him the next few weeks, and I thought the G League would be a great place for him to acclimate and start building.

I'm glad to hear he's fully recovered though. I'll be very happy, and surprised, if he proves effective at backup center this early after the summer he's had.

He needs to build up some strength top to bottom, and adjust to game speed. I'm a pessimist as to what he can accomplish the next couple months, but I'm optimistic what he could become given a season of conditioning.

Michael Beasley remains with family and away from the team. Rookie Moritz Wagner is available to play for the first time this season. Luke Walton, though, made it sound as if Wagner will play only if needed or if the game isn't close.

He should play garbage time

The Lakers need all the center depth they can get. It’s hard to rely on rookies, but Moe Wagner being healthy is a great update.

good news is he really can't make our current backup center situation any worse.
No doubt. I hope he stays healthy because we all want to see what he can do.

I honestly looked at him as a good small ball option.
Offensively, He can shoot the J. Can take bigger guys off the dribble. Pass, rebound a little bit of everything. He will help for sure. On defense, I don't know if it can get worse?

I think we can work at that whole stopping the other teams best player at the end. "It is a work in progress".
I think Ingram plays a huge role here. Moe could on some nights. McGee on others. Alot of it has to do with communication and cohesion.

Is the SBL game broadcasted?

Not today. It will be on their next game next Saturday on Spectrum at 5.


I checked Spectrum but they have Backstage Chargers on.

I just checked and it's actually gonna be on live on the Dodger channel. Spectrum SportsNet LA at 5. My bad, guys.

In summer league he was a good rebounder and a willing defender but without much strength. His shot in though looked like it needed a lot of work which coming out of college was looked at as a strength. I will be interested to see how that part of his game translates when he finally gets some time on the court.

I am a bit surprised he isn't in the G League to round into shape and get used to playing 5 on 5.

We are still thin at the PF spot which is why we are playing Hart at that position . Our lineup will be more complete if he proves to be a good rotational player.

Improvement from Moe yesterday, looking at his scoring, scoring efficiency, minutes played, lack of turnovers, and team faring well when he was on the floor.
