Could another draftee from 2003 be able to return in L.A. for his 20th NBA season?
One of the very few veterans that your Los Angeles Lakers signed in the disastrous summer of 2021 could not be returning to L.A.
The Lakers currently have an 11-man roster. players with guaranteed contracts as well as
two (Austin Reaves and Wenyen Gabriel) with contracts that are not guaranteed, and who are likely to stay.
There are two spots on the regular 15-man roster to allow Los Angeles to add players.
If L.A. decides to get out of the huge deal with Russell Westbrook, which seems to be the case, the team could adopt
a minimum two-for-one agreement that grants the Lakers two back players with lower contracts.
