Eric Boateng RumorsAll NBA Players
The Los Angeles Lakers have signed center Eric Boateng and guard Darius Johnson-Odom. Boateng, a free agent center out of Arizona State University, has split time over the last three seasons playing for the Idaho Stampede and the Austin Toros of the NBA’s Development League in addition to playing internationally for the Greek Basket League team Peristeri and the New Yorker Phantoms Braunschweig in Germany.
Shams Charania: Heard that former ASU standout Eric Boateng received a training camp invite from the #Nuggets, but he passed it up to sign in Germany.
Alex Kennedy: Lakers free agent camp: Gerald Green, Bobby Simmons, Eric Boateng, Cedric Simmons, D.J. Strawberry, J.R. Giddens, Bobby Brown and Leo Lyons.
The Lakers will bring in Bobby Brown, Bobby Simmons, Kevin Palmer, Jamelle Horne, Leo Lyons, Eric Boateng and J.R. Giddens for a look at a good cross-section of NBA veterans with a couple of hard-playing rookies thrown in for good measure. More players are expected, including a few longtime NBA veterans if my sources are correct, and should be confirmed tomorrow.
