Lakers' Zach Auguste: Inks deal with Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Auguste agreed to terms Sunday on a contract with the Lakers, Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders reports.

The specifics of the contract aren't known, but Auguste, who played for the Lakers' summer league team in July, could be in line for a partially-guaranteed deal since the organization has some extra cap space available. Even if that's the case, it still seems unlikely that the undrafted rookie from Notre Dame will break camp with the Lakers. He averaged 5.3 points and four boards per game in summer league play and could be a candidate to spend the season with the Lakers' D-League affiliate, the Los Angeles D-Fenders.

Lakers' Nick Young: Likely to be traded or waived
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lakers aren't expected to retain Young for the upcoming season, Bleacher Report's Kevin Ding reports.

Young is due $5.44 million for 2016-17 and holds a $5.66 million player option for the 2017-18 season, but the 31-year-old's declining play last season coupled with his fractured relationship with teammate D'Angelo Russell that stemmed from a controversial leaked video has left the Lakers anxious to move on. Given that he's shot a combined 35.3 percent from the field across the last two seasons and doesn't offer much impact on the defensive end, it's unclear if Young is even an NBA-caliber player at this point in his career, so a trade isn't guaranteed to materialize. It's more likely that the Lakers just write Young off as a sunk cost and release him before the season begins.

Lakers' Yi Jianlian: One-year deal non-guaranteed, but worth up to $8M
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Jianlian's one-year contract with the Lakers is non-guaranteed and will be for the veteran's minimum of $1.1 million, Mike Bresnahan of Time Warner Cable SportsNet reports. However, the deal is worth up to $8 million in incentives.

Initial reports about Jianlian's contract seemed to suggest that he'd be guaranteed $8 million in the deal, but it looks like the Lakers won't be on the hook for nearly that much money if the team elects to cut bait with the 28-year-old big man at some point during the season. Jianlian entered the NBA with much fanfare after being selected sixth overall in 2007 NBA Draft by the Bucks, but after averaging 7.9 points (on 40.4% shooting from the field) and 4.9 rebounds over 22.2 minutes across parts of five seasons in the league, he retreated back to his native China. The seven-footer attracted renewed interest following a dominant five-game showing in the 2016 Summer Olympics, and now he'll have a chance to reignite his NBA career in Los Angeles. He's expected to open the season in a depth role behind frontcourt starters Julius Randle and Timofey Mozgov.

Lakers' Timofey Mozgov: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mozgov (groin) returned to practice with the Russian national team Wednesday, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Mozgov missed Russia's last two games after suffering a groin strain, but after an MRI cleared him of anything serious and his lingering pain subsided, he was able to get back on the court Wednesday. Recently receiving a four-year, $64 million contract, Mozgov isn't in danger of missing the start of the Lakers' training camp and should move into a starter's role right off the bat with his new team.

Lakers' Yi Jianlian: Finalizing deal with Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jianlian is finalizing a one-year deal to join the Lakers, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.

The contract is expected to pay the Chinese star roughly $8 million next season in what will be his first NBA action since 2011-12, when he appeared in 30 games for the Mavericks. The sixth overall pick in the 2007 draft quickly flamed out in Milwaukee before spending three forgetful seasons with the Nets and Wizards. Jianlian holds career averages of 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 22.2 minutes per game.
