Bryant delivered 22 points (10-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 32 minutes during the Wizards' 96-92 loss to the Mavericks in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Friday.
The big man maximized his opportunities in the desert, finishing with impressive averages of 15.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 2.0 blocks across 29.7 minutes over three games. Bryant will hope the trio of strong efforts leads to a training camp invite, where he'll look to establish a role behind offseason acquisition Dwight Howard at center.
Bryant totaled 16 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal across 28 minutes during the Wizards' 87-75 win over the 76ers in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Monday.
The 2017 second-round pick of the Lakers has been excelling in the desert thus far, following up Sunday's 20-point, seven-rebound, four-assist effort with an even more impressive game on the glass Monday. Bryant boasts a 7-foot-6 wingspan and posted 19.7 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.5 blocks across 30.7 minutes over 37 games (35 starts) with South Bay of the G-League last season, so there's upside worth exploring with the former Hoosier.
Bryant had 20 points (9-11 FG, 0-2 3PT, 2-3 FT) in Sunday's summer league loss to the Spurs.
Bryant was claimed by the Wizards last week and has looked good through two summer league contests. The former Indiana standout hit nine of his 11 field goal attempts and added seven rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes Sunday.
Bryant was waived by the Lakers over the weekend, but the Wizards see enough upside in the 20-year-old center that they'll give him a look throughout the rest of this offseason. This likely means Bryant will head to camp with Washington, though he'll still need to have a strong showing to have a chance at making the regular season roster. Bryant played just 15 games for the Lakers as a rookie, averaging a meager 4.8 minutes per contest. However, with Marcin Gortat no longer around in Washington, Bryant could battle for a center spot behind Ian Mahinmi and Jason Smith.
Bryant (ankle) has been waived by the Lakers on Saturday.
The former second-round draft pick didn't see a lot of action last year with the Lakers, only appearing in 15 games and averaging 1.5 points and 1.1 rebounds. He'll likely get picked up somewhere during the Summer League schedule, however, based on his potential shown in the G-League in 2017, where he was named to the First Team. He's currently dealing with an ankle issue, but that doesn't appear to be too serious at the moment.
