The Lakers waived Andrew Goudelock on Saturday, bringing the team’s roster down to the league-maximum of 15 players.
Goudelock wasn’t expected to make the team with the offseason addition of starting point guard Steve Nash, and with Steve Blake and Chris Duhon firmly in place with guaranteed contracts, it wouldn’t have made sense from a financial standpoint to let one of them go instead.
Goudelock showed some signs he could play early last season, when he provided solid help as a reserve during a seven-game stretch where he played close to 20 minutes per game while averaging better than 10 points a contest.
Johnson-Odom may end up overseas if he and the Lakers part ways, according to a report from Sportando.net.
