Even if [Drew] Naymick impresses, he will not win a roster spot, because the Lakers will not spend on unnecessary, replaceable parts. That's simply because of how big their payroll and tax bills are. The same is true of Hicks, a big shotblocking Canadian centre formerly of Pepperdine and Florida International, whose one year professional career thus far has consisted solely of teams called "Energy" (three games for the D-League's Iowa Energy, then a stint in the IBL with Edmonton Energy). Whatever they do, they're not making it.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
