So is undrafted USC guard Julian Jacobs.
The Los Angeles Lakers have signed guard Julian Jacobs
The 6-foot-4 Jacobs has excellent hops, and he scores at the rim and rebounds well for his position as a result. But his shaky jumper is a major negative.
Jacobs enters this potential competition firmly behind Auguste and Wear.
Most likely, the Lakers waive Jacobs and assign his D-League rights to their affiliate. But, if he’s in camp, he’ll at least have a chance to buck the odds and stay into the regular season.
