Summer League Star Guard Signs a Training Camp Deal with the Lakers.

0

The Los Angeles Lakers have a limited number of roster spots available, but they will face stiff competition in training camp. With the recent signing of rookie guard Austin Reaves, the team now has one guaranteed roster spot and one two-way contract available. The team intends to keep the guaranteed spot open for the start of the season, but will most likely look to fill that two-way contract during training camp. The Lakers have added guard Trevelin Queen to their roster, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.

Queen was an undrafted rookie in the NBA last season who didn’t get a chance to play during the regular season. He played well in the summer league this offseason with Los Angeles. He had a 13-point average. He averaged 2 points per game and hit 54% of his three-point attempts. There’s no denying it caught the team’s attention. For the final two-way contract, he’ll have to beat out Mac McClung, Chaundee Brown, and Cam Oliver. Queen’s chances of making the team would be greatly enhanced if she could continue to hit threes at a high rate.

Head Coach Frank Vogel Still Wants to Commit to Defense

The Lakers traded away some key defenders this offseason in order to add offensive help. In recent years, the team has been built around a strong defense, which is one of the reasons they won a championship in 2020. Despite the loss of defensive talent, head coach Frank Vogel is optimistic about the team’s ability to perform on that end of the court. “Yeah, we lost some strong perimeter defenders,” Vogel said at Lakers Media Day on Tuesday. “But we’ve got great two-way players and no one that we feel is really a liability.” “I believe our guys will come in and compete in our smart scheme..” We’ll also set a high bar for what we can achieve on defense. Are we going to be the league’s best defense once more? I’m not sure… We have the rim protection to do it, the mental toughness to do it, and the athleticism to do it. Is this group going to commit like the previous two years’ teams? That is the question that will be posed to them, as well as the challenge that will be posed to them. ”

The Lakers should have no trouble stopping teams as long as they have Anthony Davis and LeBron James. On defense, however, it remains to be seen whether the team as a whole can reach the same heights. With so much talent and an older roster, it’s championship-or-bust for the Lakers this season.


LeBron Reveals This Season’s Goal

With so much talent and an older roster, it’s championship-or-bust for the Lakers this season. During media day, LeBron admitted as much.

“Obviously, winning a championship is the ultimate goal,” LeBron said on Tuesday. “And it all starts with health as the most important factor..” We’re ecstatic to have given ourselves another chance to be available to each other, and that’s exactly what it came down to. ”

The Lakers are only a year removed from winning a championship, but they overhauled their roster this offseason and added Russell Westbrook, a superstar. There’s no denying that the roster has improved since they won the championship. What remains to be seen is how everything comes together.
