After going undrafted out of Houston, forward Fabian White Jr. tells Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston (Twitter link) that he has agreed to sign an Exhibit 10 contract with the Lakers. White will also play for L.A.’s Summer League team.
White spent five years with the Cougars, though he missed part of his fourth year while recovering from a torn ACL.
As a fifth-year senior in 2021/22, he enjoyed his best college season, averaging 12.5 points and 5.7 rebounds in 38 games (27.8 MPG), with a shooting line of .491/.371/.688. The performance earned him All-AAC honors.
White’s Exhibit 10 deal will be a non-guaranteed minimum-salary contract that covers one year. It could be converted to a two-way deal or it could lead to a bonus worth up to $50K if White is waived and then joins the South Bay Lakers, L.A.’s G League affiliate.
