Lakers fans finally got the news they’ve been waiting for all offseason at media day.

Kendrick Nunn is fully cleared to participate in training camp, both in non-contact and contact drills. The 27-year-old guard, who missed the entirety of the 2021-22 regular season (he did suit up in the preseason, in case you forgot) is ready to go in his second season with the Lakers after a summer of uncertainty.

Alongside the Nunn update, Rob Pelinka also revealed that Troy Brown Jr. will “probably do mostly non-contact drills for at least the next week or so” because of a back issue. Fellow free-agent signee Lonnie Walker IV will similarly be restricted to non-contact drills as he deals with a minor ankle injury. The Lakers are also currently without Dennis Schröder, who has some visa paperwork to process before re-entering the United States. Schröder was most recently in Germany representing his home country and winning a bronze medal at EuroBasket 2022.

While the Lakers are without a few of their rotation players, they signed two wings to their training camp roster: Dwayne Bacon and Matt Ryan. Bacon, who last played for the Orlando Magic, was reportedly part of a free-agent workout the Lakers conducted after signing Schröder. Ryan ended last season with the Celtics on a two-way contract and appeared in one NBA game. He played 12 contests with the Grand Rapids Gold in the G League, however; he averaged 12.1 points per game while shooting 51.2 percent on twos, 38.0 percent on threes, and 92.9 percent from the foul line.

After waiving Fabian White, the Lakers’ training camp roster now stands at the full 20. There are 14 players on NBA contracts, plus two two-ways (Scotty Pippen Jr. and Cole Swider) and two Exhibit 10 contracts (Jay Huff and Javante McCoy) in addition to the two new signees.
