Lakers bring back Marcelo “The Catalyst” Huertas on a two-year deal.

After trading for point guard Jose Calderon, the Lakers have agreed to bring back Marcelo Huertas on a two-year deal.  The “Catalyst,” known for his quick energy off of the bench will be the third point guard in the Lakers’ rotation. Last year, Huertas averaged 4.5 points and 3.4 assists in 16 minutes of play.

Last year, Huertas struggled to find his role and had a difficult time competing against NBA competition. After the All-Star break, Huertas found his stride as a decent passer. He is a fun player to watch in the open floor with his vision and creativity. He will probably thrive in Luke Walton’s offensive system that promotes creativity.

Huertas will likely play behind D’Angelo Russell and Jose Calderon.  Huertas will enter his second season in the NBA at the age of 34.

Welcome back, Marcelo!
