Notre Dame forward V.J. Beachem has agreed to a partial guarantee deal with the Lakers.
A partial guarantee ensures that Beachem will get money and a spot in training camp, but no roster spot after that is guaranteed. The Lakers have already signed Alex Caruso and Vander Blue to two-way contracts so thats out of the question for Beachem. The Lakers are most likely just trying to create competition in training camp for their many wings and Beachem will be good for that. It’s unlikely he makes the final roster, but he’ll be able to showcase his talent in the preseason.
