The Lakers on Tuesday announced their summer league roster, headlined by former Kentucky forward Julius Randle -- hopefully.
Randle will travel to Indiana on Wednesday to have his foot examined. If the Lakers and Randle decide the best course of action is to remove a screw implanted in his right foot after a high school injury, the 6-foot-9 lefty will miss out on Las Vegas play.
Also on the Lakers' squad are Jordan Clarkson, the Missouri guard acquired by the franchise on draft night (46th overall pick), and returning point guard Kendall Marshall, who started 45 games for the Lakers last season.
Guard Rodrigue Beaubois, who played four seasons with the Dallas Mavericks (including their 2011 run to the title), will also join former New York Knicks center Jerome Jordan and Utah Jazz shooting guard Kevin Murphy.
Rookies LaQuinton Ross (Ohio State), DeAndre Kane (Iowa State), Trevor Mbakwe (Minnesota), Roscoe Smith (UNLV), Renaldo Woolridge (USC), Xavier Gibson (Florida State) and Anthony Ireland (Loyola Marymount) will round out the roster.
The Lakers will hold their first practice Monday, followed by their first game on July 11 against the Toronto Raptors. The team will also play on July 13 and 14, followed by at least two games of tournament play (yet to be scheduled).
Player development coaches Larry Lewis and Mark Madsen will serve as associate head coaches of the Lakers' summer league squad.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
