Ivica Zubac scored 16 points on 8-of-14 shooting with 11 rebounds and six blocks in Friday’s Summer League loss to the Jazz.
Zubac is already getting some local pub from the Lakers’ media and it’s not too surprising that folks are latching on to him given Timofey Mozgov’s bloated contract. The rookie has a legit shot at backup minutes and Larry Nance’s recent injury only helps him on that front. And if Mozgov implodes, then he’ll have a chance at 20-25 mpg.
