The number 32 pick, Ivica Zubac, will also be in action for the Lakers, while the 33rd pick, Cheick Diallo, will play for the Pelicans.

The Lakers will also feature point guard D’Angelo Russell, who has established himself as a leader on this year’s squad. Forwards Anthony Brown and Larry Nance Jr. will be making their second consecutive Summer League appearances.
