We’ve known about Marcus Landry getting a training camp invite from the Lakers for quite some time, but the team made things official with an announcement on Monday.

Landry earned his spot with a stellar performance for the Lakers at the Las Vegas Summer League, where he averaged 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.5 minutes per game in five appearances.

The Lakers currently have 11 players in place with guaranteed contracts for next season. In addition to Landry, the team has added Elias Harris, Xavier Henry, and Shawne Williams to its list of training camp invites who could potentially earn a roster spot for the coming season.

Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times reports that while Williams and Harris have a portion of their contracts ($100,000 each) guaranteed, Henry and Landry don’t have that luxury, and will need to land on the opening night roster in order to get paid on their current deals.

    The Lakers are now younger and more athletic to go along with the 5x Champ.

      I wish him all the luck in the world; but if I were knocking around the greater Los Angeles area, I wouldn’t necessarily wanna be associated with anything resembling the moniker Carl’s Jr. Nothing against his Boiler big bro, but the fictional The Big Kahuna has a better ring to it. Or maybe even In-N-Out, for the ability to shoot, as well as finish at the rim.
