Rosco Allen will only play for the Lakers at the California Classic, according to the team. The roster is subject to change.

The Lakers will be coached by South Bay Lakers head coach Coby Karl at the California Classic in Sacramento. Then, in Las Vegas, the team will be led by player development coach Miles Simon. Simon coached the Lakers last summer as well.

The roster will be headlined by former Iowa State guard Talen Horton-Tucker, who the Lakers acquired on draft night in exchange for their 2020 second-round pick and $2.2 million in cash. At 18 years old, Horton-Tucker is the youngest player on the roster followed by 21-year-od guard Zach Norvell Jr. Joe Young, 27, is the oldest player on the roster.

The Lakers will kick off their Summer League festivities with a game against the Miami Heat at the California Classic in Sacramento. Once the three-day tournament wraps up on July 3, they’ll have just one day off before heading to Las Vegas to take on the Chicago Bulls.

While the tournament might not be as much of a draw now that Moritz Wagner, Isaac Bonga and Jemerrio Jones are on their way to Washington as part of the Anthony Davis trade, it will still be interesting to see if someone goes above and beyond expectations and gets an invite to the Lakers’ training camp in September.
