The Los Angeles Lakers built the oldest roster in the NBA, bringing players like Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook, Trevor Ariza, and a few others. They also re-signed Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo. Yes, LA is building a championship-winning team. General manager Rob Pelinka will probably make a few more moves in the upcoming period. The team worked out three veterans recently, and Isaiah Thomas is one of them. Well, Darren Collison was also invited for a workout and now he scrimmages with Lakers players. What does that mean?
There’s a video from the Lakers scrimmage and it’s making rounds on the internet. Collison was scrimmaging with Talen Horton-Tucker, Malik Monk, Chaundee Brown, McClung, and a few others.
Darren Collison to join Lakers players in 2021-22?
The front office has yet to officialize the DeAndre Jordan signing. This leaves the team with another open spot. Who is the next player to join the team? Maybe the franchise will wait before adding another big name.
When it comes to Collison, he is technically retired. However, he can come out of his retirement and offer a few good seasons.
Collison’s scrimmage with the Lakers doesn’t mean a thing at this point. He is a Los Angeles native who likes to show up at games. Maybe he is just trying to get a real workout with real professionals.
This doesn’t change the fact that he could be a good fit for the Lakers. He also worked out with the team, remember?
Chris Haynes from Yahoo! Sports also reported that Collison was invited for a workout with the Golden State Warriors. He may consider joining Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
The Lakers have a nice advantage over other teams. They signed Russell Westbrook in the offseason. Why is this important? Collison and Russ were part of UCLA from 2006 to 2008. The powerful duo has yet to hit the NBA court. Maybe Collison is looking forward to sharing the court with his dear friend. These two can be explosive on the basketball court. LA needs that right now. The 2021-22 will be really explosive for the Lakers.
