Lakers’ Summer League team includes Joel Ayayi, Austin Reaves

The Los Angeles Lakers unveiled their NBA Summer League roster on Sunday, and it features three high-profile undrafted free agents.

The squad includes guards Joel Ayayi and Austin Reaves, whom the Lakers reportedly signed to two-way contracts, as well as guard Mac McClung.

The 6-foot-2 McClung reportedly agreed to a training camp deal.

The 6-foot-5 Ayayi was a key contributor on Gonzaga’s Final Four team, averaging 12.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists as a junior in 32 games (31 starts).

Reaves, also 6-5, played two seasons at Wichita State, followed by two at Oklahoma. For the Sooners in 2020-21, he averaged 18.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists over 25 games (all starts).

McClung entered the NBA draft after three college seasons but wasn’t selected. In 79 games (78 starts) over two seasons at Georgetown and one at Texas Tech, he averaged 14.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

The NBA Summer League is scheduled for Aug. 8-17 in Las Vegas with 75 games over 10 days.
