Bazemore has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Lakers, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. The Lakers have boosted their depth during the first day of free agency and the addition of Bazemore enhances a list of arrivals that also includes Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza and Wayne Ellington on Monday night. Bazemore averaged 7.2 points per game across 67 appearances for the Warriors in 2020-21, and the veteran forward should hold a role in the second unit for head coach Frank Vogel.
Bazemore notched 10 points (3-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five steals, four rebounds and an assist across 25 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers. Even though Bazemore's woeful in-bound pass denied the Warriors the chance of tying the game in the final possession of the contest, the veteran forward provided decent numbers across the board while starting for the 18th game in a row. Even though Bazemore has scored in double digits in four of his last five games, he's also recorded two or more steals in four straight appearances. He's averaging 10.6 points per game while shooting 43.8 percent from three-point range in that stretch.
Bazemore accumulated 14 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 32 minutes during Friday's 125-122 win over the Pelicans. The 31-year-old has scored double-digit points over his last three games -- a span in which he's averaging 16.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.3 steals while shooting 52.6 percent from the field. Bazemore has started the last 16 games for the Warriors and has helped elevate Golden State on the defensive end. He'll look to end his season on a high note Sunday at home against the Grizzlies.
Bazemore tallied 19 points (7-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block in 33 minutes during Monday's 119-116 win over the Jazz. The 31-year-old bounced back from Saturday's five-point effort to post his 14th double-digit scoring output of the season. Bazemore's scoring production has been inconsistent of late, but he's quietly producing top-125 fantasy numbers over his last seven games, a span in which he's averaged 9.6 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.7 three-pointers, 1.1 steals and 0.9 blocks in 30.1 minutes. The ninth-year guard will look to help make it four wins in a row for the Warriors Tuesday at home against the second-seeded Suns.
Bazemore tallied 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds and an assist across 30 minutes in Thursday's 118-97 win over the Thunder. Thanks to Bazemore, the impact of Kelly Oubre's absence has been kept to a minimum. Although a short stay in COVID-19 protocols halted his solid run, he returned with two double-doubles. Two tepid outings followed those games, but he was able to ramp the offensive production back up in Thursday's lopsided affair.
