The Los Angeles Lakers have assigned guard Sun Yue to the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBA Development League, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak.

“This is a great opportunity for Sun to gain additional playing time while still being able to continue on the NBA level,” said head coach Phil Jackson. “Your rookie year is a learning process and the more time you get on the court, the better you will be for it in the long run. I am impressed with Sun’s basketball talents and am hopeful that he will play for the Lakers for many years to come.”

Originally selected by the Lakers in the second round (40th overall) of the 2007 NBA Draft, Sun signed with the Lakers the following summer (August 25, 2008) shortly after representing China as a member of the Men’s Olympic Basketball Team in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Making his NBA debut on December 7 versus Milwaukee with four points on 2-of-3 shooting in five minutes, Sun has appeared in 10 games with the Lakers this season, totaling six points, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot in 28 minutes.

The Lakers didn't send him to the D-League because they wanted him to learn the triangle with the current team, play in the system with the team, and they needed an extra practice player.

I am surprised he hasn't played so far tonight. At least that is according to box score at lakers.com, They also traded C.J. Giles for Earl Barron as well. They being D-Fenders

Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

Yeah I saw him in college and then in preseason with LA. He has a lot of potential. Never seemed to get it together in college, but the talent is there. One day he may explode.

Arsenal missed a 3. Brandon Heath with the rebound and fouled. He hits 1 free throw. He hits another. 108 - 103 D-Fenders. 20 second time out Arsenal.

Game. D-Fenders win.
