The Lakers and 25 year old G-League standout, Vander Blue, have agreed to a partially guaranteed contract.
He’s been in the G-League since 2013 and was named the MVP last season with averages of 24.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.8 triples. He holds the G-League-record 23 free throws in a single game. He appeared in two games for the Lakers in 2015 but never really got the opportunity he probably deserves. The Lakers are already stacked with guards so even if he does make the roster, minutes will be hard to find.
