Lakers News: Team Announces Cuts Of Eric Boateng Dan Gadzuric

The Lakers have made their first round of cuts. After starting this off season with a roster of 19 players, the team has cut it’s first two players, announced via their twitter account.

The release of both Boateng and Gadzuric comes as a surprise to no one as both players were largely brought into camp to help keep the court full while Steve Nash and Pau Gasol sat to rest their aging legs.

The Lakers roster is now down to 17 players with, at the very least, two more cuts remaining to reduce their roster at 15 players. Guys like Marcus Landry, Ryan Kelly, Darius Johnson-Odom and Xavier Henry are on the bubble of being cut before the Lakers submit their Opening Night roster.

Kelly is a bit behind the group as he’s still recovering from a foot operation in the off-season while Henry has been awfully impressive in the Lakers first three preseason games. The Lakers continue their preseason tomorrow with a game against the Kings in Las Vegas.
