This is good news. Experience and playing will be good for him.

NBA.com: The Los Angeles Lakers today assigned Sun Yue to the team’s NBA Development League affiliate Los Angeles D-Fenders. Sun is the 28th assignment of the 2008-09 season and the first from the Lakers to the D-Fenders this season.

    That’s cool. Hopefully he’ll get some more playing time to work on his skillz… :)

    That is so good for Sun FINALLY! He has been sitting on the bench “waisting” away and not staying “game” ready! I say that because you need to play “some” to be in game shape and game ready! So put up some good numbers Sun!

  • Big Phil

    BOUT TIME!!!!

    SUN NEEDS TO GET INTO NBA SHAPE. MORE IN&OUT BURGERS AND SHAKES AND CONFIDENCE FRIES

  • ceballos_neverforget

    yea! I live and die lakers but moved to the midwest years ago and miss a good animal style double-double

  • Smush Walton

    It’s about time.
    What were they waiting for?

    He should have been sent to the D league the first day D league started. He needs a lot more on-court experience so he can lose that “deer in the headlights” look.

    Good luck Sun!

    ‘F Sun Yue, sent down by the Lakers to their D-League team earlier Friday to get more playing time, had 11 points and SEVEN assists in the D-Fenders’ 108-103 victory over the Anaheim Arsenal.’

    First game!? 7 assists! Niiice…

    Keep improving Sun…

  • trademaster 2009

    in the nba sun yue is too slow for point guard, not good enough at shooting for shooting guard and too skinny for small forward. now in the d-league he can play all 5 positions

  • Tempt

    Are you serious Roger? Luke can’t play? Farmar can’t defend?

    Have a seat sir. You have no idea wtf your talking about.

  • Lker Roger

    what ever your name is. If you saw the phoneix came luke left Matt Barnes open to not only hit the 3 to ice he win tfor them he had a career game high, The next night he was 3 for 5 ,
    Farmar at the utah game let daron williams make lay up s all night long. Phil called time out and went directly at farmar and yelled play defense. Both these clowns could not make it on any other team Luke great Iq why

  • Lker Roger
