It was only a matter of time until Derrick Caracter did a stint in the D-League. The rookie has played well in brief spurts this season but has been unable to get into Phil’s regular rotation unless injuries have allowed for more PT. No shame there though as PJ is known for his disdain of NBA newbies.
Caracter becomes the second Laker to see time with the Bakersfield Jam. Earlier this season fellow rookie Devin Ebanks was sent to Bakersfield to get a little more court time.
Chances are the Lakers will not suit up either of their rookies for the postseason but that all depends on what happens between now and then. For now Caracter will be available to make his D-League debut tonight in Utah.
