In a slightly surprising move on Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers cut Sekou Doumbouya from his two-way contract, and are replacing him with undrafted rookie Chaundee Brown, the team announced on Tuesday night.

Even beyond the injury, it’s not hard to guess at the reasons for the timing of this move. Not only is Doumbouya a power forward on a Lakers team that needs wing depth, but Brown also showed out in his G League debut. As the Lakers’ press release announcing the move noted, “in one game with the South Bay Lakers this season, Brown Jr. tallied 23 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.”
