Lakers announce training camp roster signings

The Lakers have rounded out most of their training camp roster in one swoop, announcing four players joining them next week.

The Los Angeles Lakers open training camp on Sept. 30 and announced a round of signings to fill out the roster. Jeremy Tyler, Roscoe Smith, Keith Appling and Jabari Brown will join the Lakers for camp, the team announced. This brings the Lakers' roster count up to 18 of the maximum 20 players that can be carried into training camp.

Los Angeles already took a look at Smith, assigning him to their Las Vegas Summer League roster. He didn't make much of an impact in the limited time he was on the court though, playing just 12.8 minutes per game while averaging five points and 2.2 rebounds.

Jeremy Tyler recently worked out for the Lakers and gives the team additional frontcourt depth during camp. He saw an increased role with the New York Knicks last season but wasn't productive, averaging 3.6 points and 2.7 rebounds. Appling was a four-year player at Michigan State and went undrafted last June.

Brown played with Lakers' second-round pick Jordan Clarkson at Missouri last season and was very productive, averaging 19.9 points per game to lead the SEC in scoring. He also shot 41 percent from beyond the arc.

This batch of training camp invites leaves two open spots for the Lakers to work with, and one final roster spot that can be used to sign a free agent for the season.
