The Lakers waived guard Vander Blue on Friday. Blue, 25, appeared in five games with the Lakers while on a two-way contract that allowed him to split his time between the Lakers and their Gatorade League affiliate, the South Bay Lakers. Blue was the development league’s MVP in 2016-17. The Lakers currently have 15 players under contract, with room to sign one player to their standard roster and, without Blue, room for one two-way addition. Teams have until Jan. 15 to sign players to two-way contracts, and the Lakers are expected to fill Blue’s slot by then.
Lonzo Ball didn’t have any other projected starters on his team, but the rookie point guard and his teammates dominated during the Lakers’ first night of scrimmages anyway. Ball was joined by fellow rookies Kyle Kuzma and Thomas Bryant, veteran Corey Brewerand Vander Blue, last year’s development league MVP. They went 3-0. “They had to kick us off the court,” Brewer said.
