Los Angeles Lakers Rumors
We already knew that second-round pick Talen Horton-Tucker, as well as undrafted free agents UNC Wilmington forward Devontae Cacok, Gonzaga guard Zach Norvell and Mississippi State forward Aric Holman, would be joining Carroll, Mille-McIntyre and Allen in summer league, but over the course of Friday a few other names began to filter out as the Lakers rapidly fill out their roster. According to Jonathan Givony of ESPN, Joe Young and Dakota Mathias are also being added to the summer squad, and the University of Buffalo men’s basketball team’s official Twitter account also announced that power forward Nick Perkins would be joining the roster
Ball posted a video of him reacting the trade news via Facebook and it doesn’t sound like he’s all that broken up about the prospect of playing alongside Zion Williamson, Jrue Holiday and his old Lakers teammates Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart in New Orleans. Lonzo Ball: “I got traded… That was good [smiles]. And yeah, now we’re gonna be taking the show to New Orleans and turn it up out there.”
Ohm Youngmisuk: Reporting w/ @Adrian Wojnarowski: The Lakers received permission from Golden State to talk to assistant Ron Adams about a role on Frank Vogel’s staff, league sources tell ESPN. It’s unclear Adams’ level of interest but Lakers could make case more compelling with significant financial offer.
Harrison Faigen: One last name for the night: Codi Miller-McIntryre is also joining the Lakers’ summer league roster, per league sources. He spent time this year with the Texas Legends in the G League and overseas with Zenit Saint Petersburg.
Harrison Faigen: Additionally, I’m now hearing that Marcus Allen (another South Bay Lakers alum from last season) is also on the Lakers’ summer league roster. Before that, he played four years at Stanford.
