I was thinking the same thing. He can't just show up and try out. The article reads
But when Traylor got a chance this week to try out for the Lakers, his probation officer denied him permission to leave his halfway house and make the trip.
Either he is just way off and is just putting that out there trying to spark an invite or the Lakers reached out to him. I HIGHLY doubt that though.
This isn't telling a lie to the media, it would be telling lies to his parole officer and now a judge. I can't believe he would go through all that without a sure thing. Last thing he needs is more trouble.
Why Mitch would want him, I have no clue. But the Lakers had to have expressed some interest in him. Maybe it wasn't solid enough for his parole officer to let him leave, but there had to be something. I can't believe he just came up with that out of thin air.
