The team won't fill the spot vacated by former assistant general manager Ronnie Lester, whose contract expired in July. Lester was integral in evaluating college players and was a solid sounding board for General Manager Mitch Kupchak.
The Lakers are also cutting back their scouting department after employing six scouts in July.
The team will use a 3-man staff partly made up of Jerry West's son Ryan West, and owner Jerry Buss' son Jesse Buss.
For those that don't know... our new Lakers Scout staffer Jesse Buss just got arrested for DUI.

Jesse Buss, son of LA Lakers owner Jerry Buss, arrested in Lexington, KY for alcohol intoxication this morning.
When Jesse Buss was arrested, he demanded preferential treatment from officers.
He kept telling officers he was the son of Jerry Buss, owner of the LA Lakers.
