The Lakers waived second-year guard Andrew Goudelock on Saturday, bringing the roster down to 15.
It seemed clear heading into training camp that Goudelock was a long shot. Coach Mike Brown primarily had him working on point-guard skills and the Lakers are already loaded with four at the same position, all on fully guaranteed contracts.
Goudelock was selected with the 46th pick in the 2011 NBA draft out of the College of Charleston, where he was a high-scoring two guard. His run with the Lakers was his first experience trying to play the point.
Both Robert Sacre and Darius Johnson-Odom remain on the roster despite non-guaranteed contracts. Sacre seems a lock to make it to opening night. The news on Goudelock might be a positive sign for Johnson-Odom, who is also on the bubble.
