Lakers Training Camp Roster: Add UNLV’s Roscoe Smith
[new_royalslider id=”312″]

With summer camp coming to a start in a month, the Los Angeles Lakers have added a new asset to their training camp roster in preparation for the start of the season.

Former University of Connecticut and University of Nevada, Las Vegas forward Roscoe Smith, will be headed to LA for training camp according Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv:

The Lakers are certainly trying to figure out how they can make the best of their situation in the front court, wondering what Smith can bring in training camp. There will likely be a few more invitees forthcoming, though the Lakers will ultimately have to cut their roster down to a maximum of 15.

Smith had a pretty impressive college career. In his first year with UCONN, he was part of the starting unit led by Kemba Walker, that won the 2011 NCAA Championship. In this past NCAA season with the Runnin’ Rebels of UNLV, Smith averaged 11.1 points, and 10.9 rebounds per game, finishing in the top five nationally in rebounding.

After losing two big men in Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman, the Lakers are looking to recuperate their front court. The Lakers acquired veteran Carlos Boozer from Chicago and retained Jordan Hill, yet are still lacking some depth.

With the recent addition of center Ed Davis, and if this trial with Roscoe Smith pans out, the Lakers could have some youthful possessions for their frontcourt to come off of the bench.
