The Lakers have signed Chris Douglas-Roberts to a training camp contract, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com (via Twitter). Douglas-Roberts likely won't earn a spot on the Lakers' 15-man roster, but the team is hoping he'll join the D-Fenders, L.A.'s D-League affiliate, says McMenamin.
D0uglas-Roberts, 24, was drafted 40th overall in 2008 after leaving the University of Memphis a year early. Although Douglas-Roberts excelled in his junior year as a Tiger, averaging 18.1 PPG on 54.1% shooting, he failed to find a long-term home in the NBA, spending time with the Nets and Bucks from 2008 to 2011. In 155 career games, he has averaged 7.7 points and 2.2 rebounds.
For the Lakers, Douglas-Roberts is the 20th player under contract, meaning the team can't add any more players to its training camp roster without waiving someone.
