Lakers Waive Forward Aric Holman

The Lakers are waiving forward Aric Holman to open up a roster spot for Dwight Howard, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports tweets.

The Lakers had a full 20-man training camp roster prior to the addition of Howard and needed to make a corresponding move.

Holman was signed to an  Exhibit 10 deal last month. He went undrafted and spent his college days at Mississippi State. The power forward blocked at least two shots in 61 of his 124 collegiate games. He averaged 9.5 PPG, 6.2 RPG and 1.6 BPG with a .473/.429/.701 shooting line in his senior year.

He averaged 4.5 PPG and 3.8 RPG in 15.8 MPG in four appearances with the Lakers in the Las Vegas summer league.

    Must be devastating for a guy like this who is young and looking to make some money and for Dwight Howard who is old and has made over 200 mil

      Would piss off Davis. Cutting his good friend right after he tore his ACL is not a good look. Besides this dude wasn’t gonna make the team anyways.

        He will be a piece of cake to re-sign at a minimum contract next summer, and since no one else is willing to play with LeBron they might as well.
