Dan D’Antoni will coach the Lakers’ summer league team, along with assistant coaches Mark Madsen, Larry Lewis and Clay Moser, according to ESPN.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Marcus Landry – Carl’s brother – will be a part of the Lakers’ summer league team. He’s a 6’7″ forward who played in the D-League last season, where he averaged 16.5 points per game while shooting 42.8% from three.
Robert Sacre may be a part of the squad: the Lakers made him a restricted free agent by extending a qualifying offer his way. Darius Morris and Andrew Goudelock are both unrestricted free agents, so it’s up to them whether they want to play for the Lakers’ summer league team, or try their luck elsewhere.
As for Ryan Kelly, the Lakers’ 2013 draft pick out of Duke, he’s flying to Los Angeles today, according to his Twitter account. However, after being drafted, it appeared that Kelly would probably not play this summer as he’s still recovering from surgery. There remains a possibility that he could join the Lakers’ squad, however.
Elias Harris will be a part of the Lakers’ team, according to Jeff Goodman. Harris is a 6’8″ forward from Gonzaga who went undrafted last month. He averaged 14.6 points and 7.4 rebounds per game last season for the Bulldogs.
Goodman also reports that Michael Snaer will play for the Lakers after suiting up for Oklahoma City during the Orlando Summer League. Snaer – also undrafted - is a 6’5″ guard out of Florida State. He averaged 14.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game last season.
Kenny Boynton Jr. went undrafted too last month, and apparently will be joining the Lakers’ summer squad. Boynton played for the Florida Gators and averaged 12.0 points per game last season, yet in 2011-12 he put up 15.9 points per night while shooting 40% from three.
