Not that we care but news nonetheless. The Los Angeles Lakers have assigned guard Coby Karl to the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBA Development League, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak.

Karl was signed by the Lakers as a free agent on July 30, 2007. He has appeared in two games this season, averaging 1.0 points and 1.0 assists in 2.0 minutes.

The 6’5” guard from Boise State averaged 14.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.0 assists as a senior and was named First Team All-WAC. Karl’s 1,698 career points ranks third on Boise State’s all-time scoring list while leaving Boise State as the all-time leader in games played (127) and three-pointers made (266).

    okay, so now we have 13 players in the roster. 12 active. So who are we gonna sign now? We have plenty of roster space.

    Just because they are assigned to the defenders doesn’t mean they are off the roster. See: Farmar.

    ^ they should just trade Karl or something, i think they shouldve taken Elton Brown out of the 4 invites and not KArl

    Uhhh…he already said last June. KB has yet to rescind his trade request and has yet to say he wants to remain a Laker.

    He’ll get good experience there.

    It doesn’t matter who we sign, the rotation is already set with 10 players in and out. Whoever we sign is gonna be a bench warmer anyways unless we find either a new backup SG for Kobe, someone to replace Kwame and Mihm, or a PF to plug into the starting line-up.

    What do you think is going to happen if the pacers keep winning with jo injured?….Lets hope we are all thinking the same thing

    Why not have Ariza back up Kobe? This team needs more defense and he’ll provide it along with rebounding about 7pts a game. I’m tired of watching the Lakers painfully pull out a victory against the Sonics of the world.

  • E-ROC

    Also, the Lakers should promote Jelani McCoy from the D-Fenders. He’ll provide much needed depth at the 4 along with shot blocking and defense.
