According to Lakers beat writer, Mark Medina, the Lakers don’t have plans on keeping Darius Morris, Andrew Goudelock, or Devin Ebanks (no surprise).

I’m a bit surprised that the Lakers aren’t going to offer the qualifying offer to one of Darius Morris and Andrew Goudelock considering the Lakers now only have Steve Nash and Steve Blake as point guards — Chris Duhon was waived earlier this week. With players like Myck Kabongo, B.J. Young, and Seth Curry going undrafted, I could see the Lakers giving them a look due to their lack of depth.

Darius Morris averaged 4 points, 1.6 assists, 1.2 rebounds, and shot 38.8 percent from the field in 48 games. Devin Ebanks 3.4 points, 2.2 rebounds, 0.5 assists, and shot 32.9 percent from the field in 19 games. Andrew Goudelock only recorded one rebound in his six minutes he played during the season; however, Goudelock averaged 12 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.7 steals, and shot 44.4 percent from the field in the three games he played during the playoffs.

    The Lakers could still bring them back. Not offering them the qualifying offer just means that they become unrestricted free agents and the Lakers dont have the right to match, which they wouldnt have done for any of those 3 guys anyway.

    I would say that both Morris and Goudelock get offers to return from the Lakers, but just for the minimum.
