The Lakers have cut the first player from their 2023 roster

The Los Angeles Lakers are gearing up for the next NBA season and want to have the key pieces in place to drive their actions.

So far, the Californian quintet’s squad includes the following players with permanent contracts for the 2023/24 NBA season: LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Austin Reaves, Rui Hachimura, D’Angelo Russell, Gabe Vincent, Taurean Prince, Jalen Hood-Shifino, Jaxson Hayes, Cam Reddish, Max Christie, Maxwell Lewis, Jarred Vanderbilt and recent addition Christian Wood.

This squad includes Colin Castleton, Alex Fudge and D’Moi Hodger; who have three of the four spots of players on a two-way contract (playing in the NBA G-League and the NBA) eligible for the following season.

What is the contract according to Appendix 10?

In addition, on September 7th, the Lakers announced the additions of Vincent Valerio-Bodon, Damion Baugh, Bryce Hamilton and Scotty Pippen Jr. on their social networks; with Annex 10 contracts.

The Exhibit 10 contract allows the applicable players to compete during preseason training camp for one of two available spots on the team’s NBA roster for the 2023-24 season, either on a permanent contract or a two-way contract.

As for those very players believed to have contracts under the Exhibit 10 premise, the California quintet has decided to cut the first after just 11 days on the roster.

The first player cut

That’s Bryce Hamilton, a shooting guard who averaged 14.1 points in the 2022-23 G-League with the South Bay Lakers; and through their social networks they made his departure official: “Personnel update: The Los Angeles Lakers requested waivers for guard Bryce Hamilton.”

At the same time, Jarred Vanderbilt’s four-year, $48 million extension is made official.
