Invited three players to the training camp, including Lakers and Isaiah Thomas, who are considering backcourt reinforcements-Basketball Count |

Thomas works out with Revlon and Westbrook

The Lakers are now off with veteran players such as Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington and Kent Bazemore, ready to win.

However, with the acquisition of Westbrook, Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell, Kentavious Caldwell Pope and other mid-level players were released, and Dennis Schröder also left the group, and the average age of the Lakers has advanced to 32.1 years. ..

Dwight Howard, who returned to the Lakers from the Seventy Sixers, said, “We’re not’old’, we’re just experienced,” but whether the veteran Lakers will survive the long regular season. Has been questioned.

There are currently 16 Lakers rosters registered, but only 12 have guaranteed contracts. Therefore, it is likely that at least a few players will be added to the roster. Meanwhile, the Lakers, who are trying to reinforce their backcoats, could win Isaiah Thomas, Darren Collison, and Mike James, Yahoo Sports reported.

33-year-old Collison suddenly announced his retirement in 2019 because of his deep faith, although several teams were interested in winning. He hinted that he would return last season, but it didn’t happen and he hasn’t played since the 2018-19 season. I’m worried about the blank, but even so, as the numbers of career average 12.5 points and 5.0 assists show, the power as a point guard is high.

Thirty-year-old James, who was playing for CSKA Moscow, clashed with the team and signed to Nets late last season. James played in 13 regular season games at Nets, averaging 7.7 points and 4.2 assists. He has played nine games in the playoffs, proving his ability to be the top scorer in the EuroLeague.

Thomas, now 32, scored an average of 28.9 points during the 2016-17 season at the Celtics, but has since suffered hip injuries and his career has been on the decline. Last season, he signed a 10-day contract with a series of injured Pelicans, scoring an average of 7.7 points in three games, but failed to win the contract. The other day, Thomas scored 81 goals in the Pro-Am League, and the NBA return theory emerged. He was invited to a training camp and worked out with LeBron James and Westbrook.

It’s only natural that the Lakers, whose average age has risen significantly, want to acquire young players. However, there is not enough salary cap space to acquire promising young players. That is why they have set a white arrow on those who have a proven track record while suppressing salaries. Who will the Lakers choose?
