Lakers' P.J. Dozier: Inks deal with Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier signed a deal Friday with the Lakers, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.

Dozier was originally expected to be a second-round pick, but team's had concerns over a knee injury, which led to the former Gamecock going undrafted. Dozier is coming off a sophomore campaign where he averaged 13.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game as the team's starting point guard. At 6-foot-6, Dozier has great size for the point guard position, but he still has plenty to prove on the offensive end before he makes an NBA team.

Lakers' Josh Hart: Goes 30th to LA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hart was selected by the Lakers with the 30th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

With a pick that initially belonged to the Utah Jazz, the Lakers took the first-team All-American out of Villanova. Hart was one of the best players in the nation last season but his status as an older player is likely what caused him to slip to the final pick in Round 1. It's unclear where, exactly, Hart will fit in to begin next season, but he'll probably be abel to hold down a bench role in what should be a young Lakers' guard rotation.

Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Headed to Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuzma will head to the Lakers with the 27th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft as a result of a trade.

Kuzma opted to forgo his final year of eligibility at Utah in order to enter the draft. He averaged a team-high 16.4 points and 9.3 rebounds in his junior season. He projects to rebound well in the league, but will need to work on his shooting consistency. He will likely need to earn playing time in the rotation, as he is no lock to see consistent minutes.

Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Heading to Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ball was selected by the Lakers with the second overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The flashy freshman from UCLA averaged 14.7 points, 7.6 assists and 6.1 rebounds on the year while leading the nation in assists, proving he can ball bigger than most in his class. Born-and-raised in southern California, Ball is a seamless fit in LA and figures to take over as the starting point guard, especially given the recent departure of D'Angelo Russell. The 6-6, 190-pound point guard isn't necessarily a go-to scorer at the moment -- although he was a dependable three point shooter with the Bruins -- but his court vision, passing abilities and unselfishness as a ball handler make Ball the cornerstone of the Lakers' rebuild. Ball is solid defensively with a knack to force turnovers and lead the transition down court, which often leads to high percentage shots. In today's NBA, Ball has the potential to be a top-level playmaker for years to come, especially if he's able to evolve into a consistent scoring threat.

Lakers' Nick Young: Declines player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young will decline his $5.6 million player option for the 2017-18 season and become an unrestricted free agent, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

After the Lakers dangled Young's name out in trade rumors over the past few years, he had somewhat of a surprise resurgence during the 2016-17 campaign, averaging 13.2 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 2.8 three-pointers across 60 games. However, the Lakers are currently shedding contracts and cap space with the hope of landing some big free agents over the next few summers, so it remains to be seen if they'll be willing to re-up Young, who should be able to lock in a raise from the $5.6 million he was slated to make. No matter who picks up Young, he's largely limited to his value as a three-point shooter, as he struggles to offer much elsewhere in the box score.
