The Lakers have the rights to Ater Majok, whom they drafted No. 58 in 2011.
They also have interest in Quincy Miller, whom the Nuggets waived before the season.
Maybe the Lakers are ready to act.
Free agent forward Quincy Miller plans to visit the Lakers in Los Angeles later this week for a workout and an opportunity to sign, league sources told RealGM on Tuesday.
The Los Angeles Lakers have flown in center Ater Majok — their 58th overall draft pick in 2011 — from China for a couple days of workouts with the team, league sources told RealGM.
Majok’s workout is unrelated to free agent forward Quincy Miller
Obviously, the Lakers want to keep a close eye on Majok as long as they have his rights. So, the timing of this workout could be coincidental. But it does seem interesting they’re working him out during the season when they’re considering tinkering with their roster.
There’s little reason to sign Majok now unless he blows away the Lakers in the workout, but Miller seems to be a viable addition.
Who would the Lakers, who have a full roster of 15 players, waive to make room? Los Angeles two players with unguaranteed contracts, Ronnie Price and Wayne Ellington (who is away from the team after his father’s murder). Xavier Henry, one a one-contract, has really struggled this season. Any of those three are viable candidates.
