Lakers Sign Rookie Forward Isaac Bonga

The Lakers have signed second-round pick Isaac Bonga, according to a team press release. Bonga received a three-year contract, Michael Scotto of The Athletic tweets.

The Lakers acquired the No. 39 overall selection in a trade with the Sixers and used that pick on Bonga. When the selection was made, there was some speculation Bonga was a draft-and-stash prospect. The signing confirms that Bonga will at least be competing for a roster spot.

Bonga, 18,  joins the Lakers from Fraport Skyliners in Germany. The 6’9” forward has played for the German National Team in qualifying rounds of the 2019 FIBA World Cup. He is expected to join the Lakers’ summer league team in Las Vegas.
