With the addition of Malone and Payton, the Lakers will have a 12-man roster. General manager Mitch Kupchak said he will add one more player. Center Sean Rooks and guard Tyronn Lue, both former Lakers, have been mentioned as possible candidates, as has Clippers guard Eric Piatkowski.
Sounds like old news to me... I can't imagine either ex-laker Lue or Rooks would be seriously considered when an additional spot could be used to bring in youth. Pike makes a little more sense though just for the sake of opening up the middle for our two biggs.
