The Los Angeles Lakers are bringing in another big man onto the team. The team is making Devontae Cacok a two-way player. Cacok will be spending time between the Lakers and their G-League affiliate, the South Bay Lakers (per Shams Charania). By making Cacok a two-way player, it comes at the expense of Zach Norvell Jr.

Cacok will be joining Kostas Antetokoumpo as the Lakers’ other two-way player. Cacok has started one game for the South Bay team but has been putting up impressive rebounding numbers. In 12 games, the UNC Wilmington product averaged 16.3 points and 11.7 rebounds per game. Cacok initially joined the team on an exhibit 10 contract in July.

Cacok will be giving the Lakers another big man who can rebound a ton. For perspective, we take a look at this stat from Ben Rosales.

It will be interesting to see how the Lakers use Cacok throughout the year. Still, he is an exciting prospect to look out for as the year goes on.
