Lakers training camp will be a VERY competitive one…

Yahoo: The Los Angeles Lakers signed forward C.J. Giles on Friday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 6-11, 240-pound Giles, who played two seasons with the Kansas Jayhawks before transferring to Oregon State, appeared in 10 games for the Beavers last season before being dismissed from the team in late January.

He averaged 6.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game at Oregon State.

    They just need someone to participate in scrimmages this traming camp. I see this guy getting cut after the first week or two.

    … I think the Lakers are just looking for someone who can be a good replacement for Turiaf

    Looks a little bit like Jay Z

    finally a forward. :) hope hes good.


    You never know… of these ‘signings’ will be a Laker (maybe 2),I want Brandon Heath to make the team,him or Mitchell.This guy is another athletic freak,WHICH WE NEED!

    Good luck to all of’em.

    I wish he’d play ball as good as JayZ raps.

    Looks like a head case with a ton of luggage. He’s tall and I read he has a legit NBA body.

    I know, it doesn’t mean anything.

    It is a good move, everytime somebody f*cks up, he’ll drag em by the ankles off the court and hit em in the head. haha

    I met him at a 3ba game in Anaheim


    I dunked on his ass, he’s pretty good but no match for me….

    OMG the lakers actually signed a forward! i cant believe it. haha! i think he is gonna be cut along with dwayne mitchell and brandon heath.

    the only 2 guys really gonna be fighting for the last spot is gonna be crawford and karl. i personally like crawford cause of his athleticism. karl is just another shooter. i hope we can still retain the services of mbenga, but it would make our roster near full unless we send crawford or karl to nbdl for entire season. i believe sun yue will make the team for sure. he’ll be on the season roster, i have a good feeling. lakers looking solid and its gonna be a great season.

    i would love to cut mbenga and add this guy to the mix

    We don’t need head cases on this team. We don’t need a Lawrence Phillips disciple on this team.


    We wanted Artest who’s the biggest headcase EVER…even over guys like Xavier Mcdaniels,Charles Barkley,Bill Walton (stoner)etc.

    So a headcase probably would’ve been the difference,for us,in the Finals.Someone crashing the boards,especially on offense and DUNKING IT ON SOMEBODY’S HEAD!

    its good that the lakers its signing alot of players so out of a bunch we could get the best.

  • e

    i dont mind a head case as long as he’s not a leader on the team..we need someone physical in the pf spot backing up gasol

    NBA Body: Check
    Athleticism: Check
    Bad Hands: Check
    No Skills: Check
    No Desire: Check
    Baggage: Check check check check

    Wadda ya know, it’s Kwame’s evil twin. At least that guy’s baggage was less dumb and destructive.
