Fan favorite G Sun Yue has been waived by the Lakers today according to the Lakers;
“With the talent level and depth of our roster, the situation simply doesn’t provide an opportunity for Sun Yue to get the chance to play that he deserves,” said General Manager Mitch Kupchak. “We feel it is in Sun’s best interests to be able to go to a team where he can get the minutes to play and showcase his considerable talents. We appreciate Sun’s contributions to last season’s championship team, and wish him the best of luck with the rest of his career.”
After the trade last season that brought Adam Morrison and Shannon Brown to the Lakers Yue was pushed even further down the depth chart, especially after Brown’s performance in the postseason that led to his recent contract extension with Los Angeles. Yue was drafted by the Lakers in 2007 and spent most of his time in the D-League with the Lakers’ affiliate the D-Fenders.
