Leon Smith, who has had difficulty fitting into several leagues since he was drafted out of Chicago's Martin Luther King High four years ago, will play for the Lakers' entry in the L.A. Pro Summer League at the Pyramid in Long Beach.
The team, coached by Kurt Rambis, opens its season Sunday against the Canadian national team.
Smith, who attempted suicide two weeks into the 1999-2000 season while with the Dallas Mavericks, played 14 games for the Atlanta Hawks two seasons ago. In the last year, the 6-foot-10 forward has played for the Globetrotters, in the USBL, the CBA and in Puerto Rico.
