The Lakers have waived guard Shaquille Harrison, center Jay Huff, and guard Nate Pierre-Louis, the team announced today in a press release.
The cuts had been expected after word broke that sharpshooter Matt Ryan secured a spot on the Lakers’ 15-man regular season roster. The team is carrying 12 players on fully guaranteed contracts, plus Ryan, Austin Reaves, and Wenyen Gabriel on non-guaranteed deals.
Harrison, Huff, and Pierre-Louis were all with the Lakers on non-guaranteed training camp contracts that included Exhibit 10 language. All three are candidates to join the South Bay Lakers, L.A.’s G League affiliate, assuming they clear waivers.
While it’s possible that a last-minute move is coming, the Lakers’ roster is now set for the regular season, with 15 players on standard contracts and a pair on two-way deals.

Loved Shaq on the Nuggets but his lack of any offensive talent kinda hurts his standing in the leauge.
Also LA would be wise to bring back Dwight or Melo
No need for a 5
Id prefer a defensive 4 rather than Melo – Tt would be my choice today
You are right TT might be the better option. Outside of Bridges, I would say Whiteside, Bledsoe, Dwight, Melo,and TT are the free agents that can help a time in a real way
SHAQ will not be with the Lakers !!
I still hold out hope for Shaq Harrison to get a real shot in the right situation for him, the same way I thought Payton was a great fit with GS. He just has to get that opportunity. I’ve been talking about him for far too long. This was never that chance or fot, but there are still teams that could use him right now
