Lakers Roster Breakdown
As the free agency period begins on July 1, the Lakers look to bolster their roster in addition to the trio of rookies they selected in the 2015 NBA Draft.
For the 20th consecutive season, Kobe Bryant will don the purple and gold in Los Angeles. Joining him in the backcourt are a pair of promising young players in First Team All-Rookie honoree Jordan Clarkson and D’Angelo Russell, the draft’s second overall pick. Meanwhile, Jabari Brown also returns and looks to improve on a strong rookie showing after being called up from the Los Angeles D-Fenders.
Wesley Johnson’s contract has run out.
Julius Randle readies to show off his skill after his rookie campaign ended just 14 minutes into last year’s season opener. Joining him at the power forward spot will be Ryan Kelly and 27th pick Larry Nance, Jr. At center, Robert Sacre is back for a third straight season, and Tarik Black returns after leading all rookies in field goal percentage last year.
