The Los Angeles Lakers have built a deep roster by bringing the core back that made it to the Western Conference Finals. The new additions have been upgrades from the players who left the team.

One of the returning players that the fans are most excited about is Jarred Vanderbilt who was a great defender that helped the team reach the WCF and now will be back to continue that labor.

Another interesting role player for this year is Cam Reddish, who the Lakers just signed and are looking to help him develop his potential to become an NBA reality.

Offseason runs are a standard part of this time of year. Players will team up at various gyms around the country to put in some live reps as they prepare for the upcoming season. Sometimes, the big stars get involved, but it’s the role players who find themselves shining at events like the Rico Hines runs.

Rico Hines, a former UCLA basketball player and current assistant coach for the Philadelphia 76ers, is famous for organizing these types of scrimmages on the UCLA campus. And recently, Vanderbilt and Reddish paired up with some other Lakers G League players like Colin Castleton and took part in Hines’ runs, via pickup hoop on Twitter
