HoopsHype Ronnie Price rumors
While both have made the team's initial roster, point guard Ronnie Price and shooting guard Wayne Ellington are non-guaranteed until Nov. 15, at which point a salary of a little over $300,000 apiece locks in. Price's guaranteed pay will step up to $658,405 if he's on the team as of Dec 15. Should Ellington stick to Dec. 1, $581,692 of his salary will be guaranteed. With Steve Nash ruled out for the season with chronic back issues, Price is expected to be a primary rotation player and possible starter. Los Angeles Times
Price has played nine years in the NBA, spending time with five teams before joining the Lakers as a training-camp invitee. “Ronnie Price has been the one guy that I could look at and say, ‘Wow, this guy has really got my attention,’” Scott said. “Offensively, he just understands what we’re doing. He plays within that box, which means he plays within himself. “He doesn’t try to do anything he’s not capable of doing. And defensively he’s a little bit of a pitbull. He just gets after people. I love that about him.” Los Angeles Times
