The Los Angeles Lakers are finalizing their roster by adding role players in hopes of making a push for the postseason. Although the front office will not be making any major changes for this upcoming season, they have been active in getting together a talented bench.
With additions like Shawne Williams and Xavier Henry, the Lakers’ second unit is far better than the one they had last year. The team is still fairly old and with the uncertainty of Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles can use all the young legs it can get.
As the Lakers are putting the final touches on their training camp roster, which begins at the end of the month, Lakers Nation looks back on the week’s news in Lakerland.
