Lakers Rumors: Dwight Buycks Signed To 10-Day Contract


The Los Angeles Lakers appear set on looking at potential future players in the closing weeks of the season. After calling up Jabari Brown and subsequently signing him to a multi-year deal following successive 10-day contracts, the Lakers have again called up a point guard for a 10-day contract, this time it being Dwight Buycks.

Buycks played 10 games in the D-League this season, where he averaged 18.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and shot 42.7% from field and 38.5% from 3-point land. The Lakers have had rumored interest in Buycks for a while now, dating all the way back to early November when he and the Lakers had reportedly been working on a contract.

Buycks has been quite the traveling man this year, starting in the NBA where he was waived in mid-July from the Toronto Raptors. In late July, he signed a deal to play in the Spanish basketball league, but stayed just eight games with the team after poor play. He then went on to play in the Chinese basketball league, and upon completion of their season, returned to the NBA D-League and the Oklahoma City Blue.

In his only year in the NBA, Buycks played just 14 games in the 2013-14 season, averaging 3.1 points and 0.7 rebounds in just 10.4 minutes a game.
