The Lakers are well-represented throughout the NBA.

On Saturday, former Lakers center Andrew Bynum signed with the Indiana Pacers.


Guard Shannon Brown, who won two titles with Bynum and the Lakers, also signed a 10-day contract on Saturday with the San Antonio Spurs.

On Friday night, the Lakers fell to the Charlotte Bobcats, 110-100, a team armed with four ex-Lakers.

In total, 14 former Lakers are under contract with other teams -- more if training camp invites and traded draft picks are included:

Charlotte Bobcats: Ramon Sessions, Josh McRoberts, Jannero Pargo and Chris Douglas-Roberts (training camp invite)

Cleveland Cavaliers: Earl Clark

Clippers: Matt Barnes, Antawn Jamison

Houston Rockets: Dwight Howard, Patrick Beverley (drafted 42nd overall in 2009, traded immediately to the Miami Heat)

Indiana Pacers: Andrew Bynum

Miami Heat: Toney Douglas (drafted 29th overall in 2009, traded immediately to the New York Knicks)

Milwaukee Bucks: Caron Butler

Minnesota Timberwolves: Ronny Turiaf

New York Knicks: Metta World Peace

Oklahoma City Thunder: Derek Fisher

Phoenix Suns: Gerald Green (training camp invite)


San Antonio Spurs: Shannon Brown

Utah Jazz: Malcolm Thomas (training camp invite)

Washington Wizards: Trevor Ariza

Some might argue that Chris Paul is an ex-Laker, after the NBA's former commissioner, David Stern, nixed a trade from the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans) in 2011.
