Lakers announce 2014 Summer League roster
- Updated: July 2, 2014
The Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday announced their roster for the 2014 Summer League that will take place later this month in Las Vegas.
The team is headlined by their seventh overall pick in this year’s draft in former Kentucky forward Julius Randle. Although he has been named to the roster, there are questions surrounding his availability to play as he has undergone several physicals and is set to meet with a foot specialist in Indiana on Wednesday. What has also been perceived as a possible hurdle is his contract situation with the team, but Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak does not seem to be concerned with getting it done in time prior to start of the summer league on July 11.
“We’re not talking about a significant amount of money and cap space,” Kupchak said. “At this point, it’s not really a factor.”
The roster will also include the team’s second round pick in former Missouri guard Jordan Clarkson and two experienced NBA players in Kendall Marshall, who started 45 games for the Lakers last season, and Rodrigue Beaubois, who played four seasons with the Dallas Mavericks. Los Angeles has also invited Xavier Gibson (Florida State), Anthony Ireland (Loyola Marymount), Jerome Jordan (Tulsa), DeAndre Kane (Iowa State), Trevor Mbakwe (Minnesota), Kevin Murphy (Tennessee Tech), LaQuinton Ross (Ohio State), Roscoe Smith (UNLV) and Renaldo Woolridge (USC).
Larry Lewis and Mark Madsen, who were player development coaches on Mike D’Antoni‘s assistant taff last season, will share associate head coach duties for the team. Los Angeles’ first three games are in place, as on July 11 they play against the Toronto Raptors, July 13 against the New Orleans Pelicans and July 14 against the Golden State Warriors. The last two games will be determined after playoff seeding is set.
