14. (tie)Renaldo Woolridge, Drew Viney, Jordan Williams
This trio finishes in a tie for last mainly because of their lack of action. A total of 53 minutes between the three of them led to just 2 points and 1 of 11 shooting. The lack of action can be directly attributed to their lack of skill, with none of them worthy of much playing time.

11. Mitchell Watt

Another player who had limited action and limited skill level. Watt was seen by some as a dark horse player, but in the end, he didn’t have enough firepower to make an impact for the Lakers. He only saw a little over three minutes of action over the last two games. Watt could be someone the Lakers look to keep on the D-League roster as he showed some potential to be a future contributor.

 

10. DJ Seeley

The Lakers were chock full of point guards who had trouble initiating the offense and were more suited as shoot-first point guards. Seeley seemed to fit the mold, but did not shoot the ball well and, therefore, saw his minutes in each game slowly slip away, playing in just 5 minutes in the final two contests. Seeley, who is just 23 years old, could be a solid addition to the Lakers D-League affiliate, but I’d be surprised if he saw any time in the NBA.

 

9.Travis Hyman

Hyman impressed me maybe a bit more than he did others, but I love his tenacity. Unfortunately for him, he wanted until the final game to show his shot blocking ability, but boy did he show it. He swatted five shots in just 14 minutes of action. Nonetheless, the gap between these bottom six and the rest is a big one. It’s incredibly unlikely that any of these players will be in the NBA, which isn’t the case for the others.
