Following the 2015 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Lakers quickly reached an agreement with Robert Upshaw to have him on their Summer League roster in Las Vegas. Despite the talent, the center went undrafted after being kicked off two college programs.

After one Summer League game, there was a report the Lakers had reached a two-year deal with Upshaw. However, the deal was never made official and the Lakers have ‘no immediate plan’ to sign him, but he remains a possibility according to Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times:

With general manager Mitch Kupchak sharing the Lakers could add another point guard or center, Upshaw remains a possibility despite the team recently adding Jonathan Holmes and Michael Frazier. Although the Lakers could use a small forward to balance out the roster, Kobe Bryant is expected to start at the position to allow a D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson backcourt.

Heading into the new season, the Lakers have a nice blend of veterans and prospects. While making the playoffs will be a challenge in the Western Conference, there is excitement surrounding the return of Kobe Bryant for his 20th season as well as the young core of Russell, Clarkson and Julius Randle.
