Meanwhile, Wear initially joined the team in early March by signing a 10-day contract. It marked his first action in the NBA since appearing in 51 games (making one start) for the New York Knicks during the 2014-15 NBA season.

Wear’s play earned him a second 10-day contract, and that was followed by signing with the Lakers for the remainder of the season.

Now, the UCLA product appears poised to return with the team on a two-way contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:

Wear’s signing brings the Lakers’ training camp roster to a maximum 20 players, and they now have utilized both two-way contracts; Caruso remains on such a contract for this season. Malik Newman was signed to a two-way contract but was recently waived.

Wear averaged 4.4 points, 2.2 rebounds, and shot 36.2 percent from deep for the Lakers while appearing in 17 games. He averaged 16.7 points per game, 8.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.2 blocked shots while with South Bay.
