Naymick was scheduled to play with the Lakers in summer league, at which point I wrote this about him:

It has been two years since Naymick left Michigan State, and he remains their all-time blocked shots leader. In the two years he's been going, he has played in Poland and the LEB Gold, averaging 10.6ppg/7.5.ppg/2.0bpg for Kotwica in 2008-09 and 8.8ppg/6.4rog/1.9bpg for Caceras in 2009/10. He is 6'11, pretty athletic (very much so for a ginger) and with good shot blocking skills. He can't score outside of gimmes and the occasional 18 footer, and is very thin, but he doesn't make mistakes and will play physically on the interior.

It is perhaps a wonder, then, why he averaged only 4/4/1.7 in his senior season.


For whatever reason, Naymick never actually played in summer league, so they've had to wait until now to get their extended look at him. That's all it will be; an extended look. Even if 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.

Drew Naymick

One of the first things you find when Googling Drew Naymick's name is this. Ouch.

It has been two years since Naymick left Michigan State, and he remains their all-time blocked shots leader. In the two years he's been going, he has played in Poland and the LEB Gold, averaging 10.6ppg/7.5.ppg/2.0bpg for Kotwica in 2008-09 and 8.8ppg/6.4rpg/1.9bpg for Caceras in 2009/10. He is 6'11, pretty athletic (very much so for a ginger) and with good shot blocking skills. He can't score outside of gimmes and the occasional 18 footer, and is very thin, but he doesn't make mistakes and will play physically on the interior.

It is perhaps a wonder, then, why he averaged only 4/4/1.7 in his senior season.

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.
