With one roster spot remaining, the Los Angeles Lakers reportedly worked out 14 players earlier this week as they prepare for the 2015-16 NBA season. While names included Bobby Brown, Eric Moreland and Toure Murry, another player has emerged.
According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Lakers also worked out Ricky Ledo, who was recently waived by the New York Knicks:
Heard in Vegas Ricky Ledo worked out for Lakers Monday. Could attend their camp after Knicks cut him so they could sign Thanasis.

At the 2013 NBA Draft, Ledo was selected with the 43rd overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks, but was eventually traded to the Dallas Mavericks. During his two seasons in Dallas, he only appeared in 16 games before getting an opportunity with the Knicks this past season. In 12 games, Ledo averaged 7.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 19.4 minutes.
For the Lakers, they have one remaining spot left on their roster and general manager Mitch Kupchak has shared the team could use another point guard or center. With their first preseason game not until early October in Hawaii, a recent report has the Lakers interested in Javale McGee.
