Lakers Re-Sign Marcelo Huertas

AUGUST 5: The Lakers have officially signed Huertas, the team announced today in a press release.

“Marcelo’s understanding of the game, unselfishness, and professionalism are assets to our team and he has an uncanny ability to change the pace of the game,” GM Mitch Kupchak said in a statement. “He’s fundamentally solid but also has a flair and excitement to his style of play, which makes him a fan favorite.”

Estimates from Bobby Marks of The Vertical and Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders put the value of Huertas deal at about $1.6-1.7MM annually over two years.

JULY 7: The Lakers and restricted free agent Marcelo Huertas have agreed to a deal that will keep the point guard in Los Angeles, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports. It’s a two-year pact, Wojnarowski notes, but the scribe does not relay the amount, nor what guarantees, if any, are included in the arrangement.

Los Angeles had tendered the 33-year-old a qualifying offer worth $1,074,636, which made Huertas a restricted free agent. He’ll be the the third-string point guard behind recently acquired Jose Calderon and 2015 lottery pick D’Angelo Russell, the scribe adds.

Huertas appeared in 53 games for the Lakers in 2015/16, averaging 4.5 points, 1.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 16.4 minutes per outing. His shooting numbers on the campaign were .422/.262/.931.

      Still need a 3rd power forward, 3rd center (or 2nd) and a third Shooting Guard.

      • Jeremy

    I don’t get unless we are trying to trade for Westbrook

      It could be for depth. Injuries could happen. So why not have good depth. Instead of having Lou play the point like he did at times

    So we traded for Calderon only to get a worse version of him back on the team lol.

    Maybe now he can afford a decent haircut.

  6. Danthemilwfan

    Someone needs to get blocked and over matched while the lakers tank again lol

  7. He’s my poor mans Nash.
    I think his best assets for the Lakers is his vision and ability to help Walton reach players’ understanding of the plays being run
