Lakers Rumors: Team work out Julyan Stone for second time


The Los Angeles Lakers plan to work out free agent guard Julyan Stone for a second time later this week, according to Shams Charania from Real GM.

Stone has already worked out for the San Antonio Spurs and plans to audition for Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat. The 25-year-old has also received lucrative offers from two Chinese teams, according to the report.

The Lakers currently have two roster spots open and could offer Stone either a training camp deal or a minimum salary contract.

Eric Pincus from the L.A. Times recently noted that the purple and gold may look to add a point guard – along with a scorer like Michael Beasley or a center – so Stone, a 6’6″ point guard, could possibly fit the bill.

Stone went undrafted out of the University of Texas-El Paso in 2011 and has since played for the Denver Nuggets and Toronto Raptors and has career averages of 1.3 points, 1.1 assists and 44 percent shooting from the field in seven minutes per game, per Real GM.
