The Los Angeles Lakers are strengthening their squad before the preseason. The Los Angeles franchise has officially announced the addition of Scotty Pippen Jr., Bryce Hamilton, Damion Baugh and Vincent Valerio-Bodon. According to the joint press release, the four players are signing a contract “Exhibition 10”.

In fact, both Pippen Jr. and Hamilton already defended the South Bay Lakers jersey last year. He finished first with an average of 21.4 points and 5.6 assists in 19 games.
