The Los Angeles Lakers have signed center Tarik Black, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. “Tarik is a player whose strengths are well-suited for the style of play we envision for our team going forward,” said Kupchak. “He plays the game with a mix of athleticism, energy, and physicality that make him a valuable frontcourt contributor in today’s NBA.”
Storyline: Tarik Black Free Agency
The Lakers might not be staying home for training camp after all. After returning to Honolulu, Hawaii, last September, the Lakers are in the process of relocating Luke Walton’s first training camp to Santa Barbara. While the move has not been finalized, it is in the works, Lakers spokesman John Black said. It’s unclear what prompted the move, but coaches often like to seclude players early in the season to help build chemistry.
