Lakers Waive Troy Daniels, Bring Dion Waiters In For Workout

As of March 2, the Los Angeles Lakers sit atop the Western Conference with a record of 46-13. The team is usually among the top ten in team-related statistics, except Los Angeles isn’t shooting, nor making the 3 ball. The team finds themselves among the bottom ten teams in this category.

Perhaps this is why the Los Angeles Lakers chose to wave guard Troy Daniels in exchange for Miami’s Dion Waiters.

Daniels had a much smaller role in Los Angeles, compared to his Phoenix days. He didn’t start any games for the Lakers this year, and usually only averaged about 4 points for the 11 minutes a game he played. His recent Twitter post thanking the team, exemplifying his good character.

Waiters, on the other hand, doesn’t necessarily have the character of Daniels. That’s why Waiters spent most of this year on the bench, because of poor decision making choices, like this one.

There was also that one time he took a THC edible, and ended up going wild on his team’s plane.

Back when Waiters saw minutes as a starter in Miami, he averaged around 3 assists and 14 points a game. However, Los Angeles isn’t in any rush to fill its empty roster slot.
