14.) Troy Daniels

For the first (or last) player depending on how you view this ranking, we have guard Troy Daniels, who many thought would be waived to open up a roster spot for the newly signed Markieff Morris. That really tells you all you need to know in regards to Daniels’ place on this team.

Besides his 3-point shooting, which even then hasn’t been as lights out as his reputation would have you believe (36.1% on the season), Daniels simply doesn’t bring much else to the table for this Lakers team. He’s an absolute turnstile on the defensive end, can’t do much with the ball in his hands besides catch and shoot, and overall hasn’t seen much of the floor besides garbage time.

Beyond that, not much else really needs to be said about Troy Daniels, he can still be a serviceable garbage time player, but his defensive limitations, coupled with his lack of offensive versatility make him a near unplayable player, especially come playoff time.

To be fair, Daniels wasn’t signed to be an impact player, but in terms of his placement in this player ranking, it’s pretty clear that he’s the 14th best player on this list of 14 Lakers.

*With the news of Troy Daniels being waived earlier this week, the Lakers roster is down to 13 players at the time of this article, however, since we’re taking into account the body of work of the entire roster since All-Star Break, we’re going to go ahead and keep Daniels on this list.
