The Los Angeles Lakers have announced that they have waived forward Marcus Landry.
After finishing the preseason with a 4-4 record, the Lakers have discovered some promise with their current squad. Players like Chris Kaman and Nick Young have both emerged as valuable role players for L.A.
Both Xavier Henry and Shawne Williams have been a pleasant surprise despite playing on non-guaranteed contracts. Rookies Ryan Kelly and Elias Harris are long term projects that the franchise couldn't afford to give up on.
Ultimately, the Lakers decided to cut Landry despite his excellent 3-point shooting. However, the 6-7 forward out of Wisconsin struggled to find any rhythm on his shot. He appeared in six preseason games, averaging an unspectacular 4.0 points in 13.4 minutes per game.
The Lakers regular season roster now stands at 15 players.
