Lakers News: Lakers Waive Derrick Caracter

The Los Angeles Lakers have waived second-year big man Derrick Caracter, Ken Berger from CBS Sports tweets. Caracter had not played a single game in the 2011-12 season due to an injury, but was working his way back to the lineup.

Caracter had not put up impressive numbers in his time in the NBA, but he could have given Mike Brown some valuable minutes. The Lakers’ stars tend to play a lot of minutes, but with Caracter on the floor, Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol could have gotten some extra rest on the bench.

Caracter was assigned to the NBA D-League in order to get himself back into basketball shape, but this recent news shows that the franchise has decided to move on from their 2010 draft pick.
