With Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, and Josh Hart all out on Monday night against the Kings, someone on the Lakers Summer League team had to step up. Alex Caruso was the guy, in a big way.

Following the game last night, it looks like Alex Caruso has agreed to terms with the Lakers, and according to Ramona Shelburne, his deal will be for two years, also a 2-way contract. Great job by the Lakers front office to use one of their two 2-way contracts. Caruso should thrive in the G-League, but will be a serviceable backup point guard for the Lakers.
