The youngbloods, as Uncle Drew might call them, all will likely be scarcely used this season, or at least not major contributors. With Harris, we saw his ability as a hustle player and occasional scorer in the summer league. He has potential, but will need time to develop any form of a consistent game offensively.

 

With Sacre, he showed tons of improvement in the summer league, but likely still not enough to crack the rotation. However, if he continues to improve, he could become a rotation player going into next year. Plus, his contributions on the bench are invaluable.

 

Ryan Kelly is completely unproven. We know what he did in college, but we have no idea if he can do the same at the pro level. His skill set lends itself to Mike D’Antoni’s system, but can he adapt to the game? Only time will tell, but considering he is just a rookie, it’d take a really bad showing this year for him not to be back.

 

VERDICT: All 3 will be Lakers in 2014-15
