Lakers Rumors: Team bring in Roscoe Smith for workout

The Los Angeles Lakers have added yet another player to their workout schedule.

According to Shams Charania from RealGM, the purple and gold are bringing Roscoe Smith for a workout today. Smith was on the Lakers’ training camp roster and impressed quite a few people along the way. The 23-year-old is currently a member of the Lakers’ D-League team, the D-Fenders.


In three games this season for the D-Fenders, Smith is averaging 18.3 points, 16.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1 block in 35.7 minutes per game.

If the Lakers decide to add Smith or any other player to their roster – they’re also rumored to be working out Quincy Miller, Jordan Hamilton and Dwight Buycks, among others – they’ll need to cut one of their current players seeing as they’re already at the league maximum of 15 players.

Smith, along with Jabari Brown, who is also now on the D-Fenders, was the final cut for the Lakers at the end of the preseason.
