Lakers sign Tristan Thompson and Shaquille Harrison

Dave McMenamin joins “SportsCenter” to discuss what Tristan Thompson and Shaquille Harrison bring to the Lakers ahead of their playoff game.

Los Angeles – in Sources told ESPN on Sunday that the Lakers will sign players — including LeBron James’ former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Tristan Thompson — on the final day of the regular season to bring more depth to the playoffs.

Thompson joined the Lakers after last playing in 2021-22 with the Chicago Bulls, averaging 5.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in 23 games. He was a vital cog in the Cavaliers’ four consecutive trips to the NBA Finals from 2015 to 2018.

The Lakers will also sign Shaquille Harrison, a defensive-minded guard. Harrison played for his affiliate, the South Bay Lakers, this season and averaged 13.6 points, 6.2 rebounds, 8.3 assists and 2.1 steals in 32 games.

Los Angeles will waive goalkeeper Davon Reed to open up a roster spot to sign a second player.

The Lakers (42-39) enter Sunday in seventh place in the Western Conference. They could move to sixth and avoid championship play with a win over the Utah Jazz and an extra assist on other scores.
