Ivica Zubac was awesome for the Los Angeles Lakers during Las Vegas Summer League. The 19-year old center ranked second in blocked shots at 2.6 per game and looked much less raw than most expected.

Zubac’s high-level of production has many Lakers fans just as high on him moving forward, but could he really step in right now if Timofey Mozgov’s injuries pile up? Hosts Anthony Irwin and Harrison Faigen discussed how ready they think Zubac is on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers. Then, since Mozgov’s injury is really the only Lakers news of note, the two got into their thoughts on Team USA’s play at the Olympics so far.
