Late last night, we got word that the Los Angeles Lakers would be working out centers Tristan Thompson and Tony Bradley this week as they continue to search the market for an emergency backup big in the wake of Mo Bamba’s injury.
According to NBA insider Shams Charania while appearing on Bally Sports’ “The Rally,” those workouts have already taken place. The details were scant, but here is what he had to say:
“I’m told the Lakers worked out both Tristan Thompson and Tony Bradley. I’m told Thompson was in good shape. Tony Bradley, he’s a guy that played this year for the Bulls, there’s a little more recency with his level of play. Tristan Thompson has yet to play this year... He finished (last) year with the Bulls, actually was a teammate of Tony Bradley’s, supplanted him in the rotation last season in the rotation when the Bulls got him in the buyout market. So we’ll see. The Lakers have one open roster spot, they’ve looked into big men in the market place, we’ll see if they decide to sign Thompson or Tony Bradley in the coming days.”
