Stanley Johnson signs a second 10-day contract with the Lakers
Johnson had signed a 10-day hardship exemption contract with the Lakers when they were dealing with COVID-19 issues, and he was impactful.
Johnson, who attended Santa Ana‘s Mater Dei High, averaged 6.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 25.2 minutes during five games, three starts, with the Lakers this season.
The 6-7 Johnson, 25, is a strong defender who was able to defender some centers and forwards.
Dwight Howard and Talen Horton-Tucker have struggled lately, but both come up big in the Lakers’ win over the Sacramento Kings.
All things Lakers, all the time.
