With eight games remaining in the 2014-15 NBA season, head coach Byron Scott and the Lakers are currently evaluating their roster. According to RealGM’s Shams Charania, the Lakers have signed D-League guard Dwight Buycks to a 10-day contract:

Earlier in the season, the Lakers reportedly worked out Buycks and numerous players to improve their backcourt depth. However, the team did not make any significant moves until recently signing Jabari Brown from the Los Angeles D-Fenders.

In 10 games for the Oklahoma City Blue (minor league affiliate for the Oklahoma City Thunder), Buycks averaged 18.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 6.2 assists in 34.4 minutes.
