Even though the Los Angeles Lakers have made a number of moves this off-season, the front office is still hard at work as they prepare for the start of training camp. The Lakers have already reportedly agreed to a deal with forward Jonathan Holmes and they reportedly held a workout earlier in the week that included guard Bobby Brown.
Another player who was worked out by the team, according to David Pick, is big man Jeremy Tyler:
Lakers also worked out Jeremy Tyler. He had 25 & 11, plus game-winner vs LA at summer league.

Tyler first came into the public eye in 2009 when he became the first player to forego his senior year of high school to play professionally overseas. Tyler was originally selected 39th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft and has spent time with the Golden State Warriors, New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks.
Tyler also has some history with the Lakers signing with the team in September of 2014, but he would be waived before the start of the season. As Pick noted, Tyler had a dominant showing in Summer League against the Lakers with a 25 point, 11 rebound performance as a member of the Dallas Mavericks Summer League team.
The Lakers are looking at every option for players to bring in to training camp who could possibly make the team. Both Wayne Ellington and Ronnie Price were signed right before training camp last season and each not only made the team, but started at different times for the Lakers.
