Wear signed a contract with the Lakers on Thursday. Wear spent time with the Lakers during the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 7.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.0 assist. He played for the Lakers' G-League affiliate last season and despite inking a deal with the big club Thursday, he'll likely eventually get sent back down. Wear will not be relevant in fantasy leagues.
Wear was waived by the Lakers on Wednesday, Bill Oram of the Orange County Register reports. Wear, Julian Jacobs and Zach Auguste were all released Wednesday, as the Lakers have started to cut down their roster prior to the regular season opener. Wear could open the season with the Lakers' D-League affiliate, the Los Angeles D-Fenders, although he could opt to play overseas as well for a more lucrative deal.
Wear signed a training camp deal with the Lakers on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. After playing in 51 games for the Knicks during the 2014-15 season, Wear was out of the league last season and instead, spent the year with the Spanish club Gipuzkoa overseas. The former undrafted forward will look to resurface with the Lakers, but considering his contract is only partially guaranteed, he remains a long-shot to make the team's final roster. It wouldn't be surprising to see him end up in the NBA D-League or head overseas again once all is said and done.
Knicks forward Travis Wear will miss the final game of the regular season Wednesday against the Pistons with a sore lower back, the team announced. Wear missed the final 13 games of the season with the injury. He finishes the season averaging 3.9 points and 2.1 rebounds in 51 games.
