Lakers Rumors: L.a. Expected To Work Out 14 Players On Monday

The first game of the NBA preseason for the Los Angeles Lakers won’t take place until October 4 with the team set to face the Utah Jazz in Honolulu, Hawaii. Leading up to the first of two preseasons games against the Jazz in Hawaii, the team will bring in players to fill out the roster for training camp.

According to Sportando, the Lakers are expected to work out players on Monday:

The names of the 14 players, or even if the team actually plans to work out those players, has yet to be released or confirmed. If the Lakers do intend to hold workouts on Monday, Bobby Brown and Jonathan Holmes are likely to be among the players brought in.

Reportedly, Holmes is rumored to have agreed to a deal with the Lakers. Holmes is an undrafted rookie out of Texas that would address a need for Los Angeles, but many believe he’s only a training camp invite at this point in time.

As for Brown, Bleacher Report’s Jared Zwerling reported on Saturday the 30-year-old journeyman would be working out for the Lakers on Monday. Again, nothing has been confirmed by the team, but it seems as though workouts will be taking place at the team’s practice facility unless something changes.

According to David Pick, Eric Moreland and D.J. Kennedy can be added to the list of players rumored to be working out for the Lakers on Monday:

Apparently, Toure Murry and Sean Kilpatrick will also being auditioning for the Lakers, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein:

The Lakers currently have 12 players with guaranteed contracts with Jabari Brown, Tarik Black and Robert Upshaw on the bubble. Black and Brown have non-guaranteed deals and Upshaw has yet to officially sign the multi-year deal that was reported last month.
