The Lakers will have Thomas Bryant for next season

Los Angeles Lakers He began with the renewal since the hiring of his new coach, Darvin Ham, and now he begins to add names with a view to a season in which he seeks to forget the bad drink of the recent campaign.

To the elderly squad for which they bet without finding dividends (they did not even qualify for the play-in), the Californian franchise will add a young pivot, who brings fresh air in the painted zone and can perform after Dhight’s unsuccessful tasks Howard and outgoing DeAndre Jordan.

In this context, as reported by Yahoo Sports via Chris B. Haynes, Thomas Bryant reached an agreement to return to the purple and gold team after a first experience as a rookie in the 2017/18 campaign, in which he made 15 appearances.

The New Yorker born in Rochester 24 years ago spent the last four seasons in Washington Wizards and he had his peak of presentations (72 games) in 2018/19, with a percentage of 20.8 minutes per game.

The 2019/20 saw him average 13.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 24.9 minutes and, when he was heading for a takeoff, a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee slowed him down. That is why in 2020/21 he was limited to 10 games and, in the recent one, in which the Wizards were out of the postseason, he had 27.

The Lakers are confident of squeezing Bryant’s potential and regaining prominence after the 11th. Western Conference spot that only had LeBron James as a standout, coupled with a really poor performance.
