What does Jared bring to the Lakers?

Dudley, most recently known for his actions in the first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers, shot 35.1% from three and averaged 5.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in a little under 21 minutes per game last year.

The Lakers are hoping Dudley is a piece to help space the floor for LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and hopeful potential signee Kawhi Leonard. However, if Leonard pivots toward the Clippers or Raptors, the Lakers will definitely need Dudley to step into a larger role next season.

Take a look at Dudley at his best:

The Lakers have been working to get LeBron James’ the right set of players around him to make the team come together and WIN WIN WIN.

Dudley is a good acquisition to accomplish that goal. Plus, he’s a great locker room presence and has a ton of experience in the NBA.
