NBA News: Los Angeles Lakers apparently released Deandre Jordan and commit D.J. Augustin
The Los Angeles Lakers are planning to dismiss Deandre Jordan to a rust of the rust for the obligation of D.J. Augustin free. This reports Shams Charania (the athletic). The Philadelphia 76ers are probably interested in the dismissed Big Man.
The Lakers secure a Guard with Augustin with a lot of playoff experience and a constant good litter, the 34-year-old has a three-rate of 38.0 percent over its 13-year-old career.
Augustin could probably be used in some cases as an alternative to Russell Westbrook in the final phase of a game. In 34 games of this season, he put 5.4 points and 2.2 assists at shooting splits from 40.4 / 40.6 / 86.8 to Houston before being released from the Rockets on February 10th.
Jordan ran in 19 of his 32 missions of this season for the Lakers as a starter and delivered 4.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game at 67.4 percent from the field and 46.2 percent of the freezer. According to Sharania, the Lakers also plan to equip Wenyen Gabriel with a Two-Way contract. The athletic forward is used in this season in a total of seven games for the Nets and the Clippers.
The information about Philadelphia complemented Adrian Wojnawrowski (espn), after which the Sixers had been looking for a backup center for a long time and to seek Jordan. This can happen in two different ways: Either the Sixers suffered a Waiver Claim for the 33-year-old or hope that no other team filed a claim for him and he becomes free agent to commit him.
Since Andre Drummond was sent to the Nets in James Hard Trade, the Sixers currently have the 37-year-old Paul Millsap, Willie Cauly-Stein and Paul Reed as options for the center position when Embiid needs a break.
