Lakers Re-Sign DJ Mbenga

I love D.J. I’m very glad the Lakers resigned him (though like the rest of the team he’ll have to fight for his spot as word is Mihm looks healthy)…

Hoopsworld: The Los Angeles Lakers re-signed center DJ Mbenga on Wednesday morning, extending their preseason roster to 19.

The terms of his contract have yet to be released.

As such, it’s not clear if his contract is guaranteed or if he has to earn a spot on the final roster.

    Mihm is healthy now but he seems to be injury prone the last few years. Good to keep some big guys.

    Remember when we had Bynum, Kwame, and Mihm and they were all unavailable? Ronny was there to backup and that’s not even his natural position.

    It doesn’t hurt. I hope he does make the final roster. The guy improved as the season progressed last year.

    Mbenga is a beast since he blocked our top player at least one time.

    Atleast DJ got some post moves he can put to memory and do MORE THAN ONCE, and actually hustles and grabs a few boards with the limited time he gets, unlike Kwame.

    DJ’s a kool dude, if he can work on that post up and turn around jumper then he can be a decent backup

  • mr.laker19

  • lakers08-09

    Have to love DJ and the fact Mitch & Lakers FO R bringing in all these high quality guys.The compatition will be great for Drew.

    The saying in basketball is you only get better by playing against the best.Last year the team had a hard time with enough guys to
    practice.

    The thing that made the Lakers the team they were ,was how hard they worked, & practiced against each other. Go Bomb squad!
