The Los Angeles Lakers waived former Mississippi State Bulldogs forward Aric Holman to make space for Dwight Howard on the roster, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. Holman was on an Exhibit 10 contract.

Holman played in 124 games over the course of four years for the Bulldogs and started in 78. He played 21.1 minutes and averaged 8.3 points per game. The 6’10 forward had a 51/38/69 shooting split and averaged 6.1 field goal attempts per game. Holman also hauled in 5.8 rebounds per game.

Holman is still eligible for a $50,000 bonus if he spends 60-days with the South Bay Lakers.

Howard was signed as a result of DeMarcus Cousins’ season-ending injury. His contract is fully non-guaranteed and will earn money for every day that he spends with the team after the start of the season.

Holman will likely be a member of the South Bay Lakers in the G-League and could earn a spot on the parent roster later in the year if injuries plague the depth of the team.
