Interesting. Has shown flashes of potential but a deal just under Lou Williams? Wow. Bye bye cap space.

That's great news, bearing a Zubac breakout at Summer league it looks as if Tarik will be our backup C for the future (well at least the next 2 years)...still hoping we add another piece

2nd year not guaranteed, which makes this contract better. Can play backup center in small lineups.

Black's deal will include a trade kicker and a guarantee date in the second season, sources said. For Black, the salary represents the maximum he was able to earn under the Early Bird provisions.

Won't affect our current cap space we may still have a shot at Crabbe

Nice move that sures up the 5 spot. Good to see the front office sticking with some young glue guys for a change. He's a great energy guy.

Scary thing is I can believe that. I have said once or twice that I would have been fine with Black as the starter. The kid is good in pick and rolls, creates space for himself, runs the floor and despite being undersized is a great off/def rebounder. I know they're were prettier names out there, but if Scott had not stalled this kids push, the Lakers could have been more confident in rolling with him and MAYBE spending differently. Who knows?.....good signing, though.

I really want to see this guy succeed. Really nice, humble dude and he works hard on the floor when given the minutes. Money well spent.

If the Lakers didn't sign Mozgov I don't doubt Black could've averaged 10 and 10 as our starter this upcoming year

I agree. Active and mobile in the pick and roll and perfect for an offense where his usage will be super low and he can just gobble up boards and trash around the rim. I've been wanting him to get a real chance for quite a while now and hopefully it finally comes to fruition!
