See! I told you it was the new cool thing! Lakers rookie Sun Yue, who has been opposed to joining the D-Fenders this season, has been assigned today, planning to join the team for their game against Anaheim prior to the Lakers game tonight.
The Lakers are using their D-League team surprisingly well, as their roster tonight will consist of former NBAer Earl Barron, Joe Crawford, Brandon Heath, and Dwayne Mitchell, all of which played for the Lakers this preseason, and now Sun Yue. I'm impressed.
