Former Lakers prospect Moe Wagner spreading his wings with Wizards

There’s been an exception for the last two weeks: Avery Bradley, who has been sidelined with a hairline fracture in his right leg. Frank Vogel said the Lakers will reevaluate the veteran guard on Saturday.Related Articlescenter_img LOS ANGELES — Moe Wagner looked at home on the Staples Center court, going through his warmup routine – a smart assortment of 3-pointers, dunks and floaters – before stopping and bending at the waist to greet NBA superfan Jimmy Goldstein on his way to the visitors’ locker room, where he’d get taped in preparation for his first game against his former team.Wagner, of course, is wearing red these days, one of the Lakers’ young castoffs who landed in Washington, D.C., where he’s benefiting from an opportunity to grow alongside former Lakers Thomas Bryant and Isaac Bonga.Bryant arrived last season after spending his rookie year with the Lakers, for whom he appeared in just 15 games and scored only 22 points. After the Wizards claimed Bryant off waivers following Bryant’s rookie campaign, he rewarded them by putting up averages of 10.5 points and 6.3 rebounds over the course of 72 games. This season, he’s increased those averages to 14.8 points and 8.8 rebounds.For the 22-year-old Wagner, who the Lakers drafted 25th overall out of Michigan in 2018, his time so far in the nation’s capital has translated into more minutes – and more shots going in.

He inspires you, he hustles, he takes charges, he moves the ball, he’s a good 3-point shooter, he has some handles that you don’t think a guy that size can do, he puts it behind his back and scores around the basket.”Brooks said he can foresee Wagner’s developing skill set leading to an extended stay in the league.“He’s gonna have a long successful career,” Brooks said. “And we’re hoping that it’s with us forever because I like coaching guys like him because he gives you everything he has … he understands his role. You can take him out after three or four minutes, he’s as excited to come out as he is excited to be going into the game, because he loves to play and he’s just a great teammate.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Lakers managed to win the first eight games that Bradley missed, but they’ve felt his absence. In his 10 starts, Bradley averaged 9.6 points, but his on-ball defense is even more missed: With him on the floor, the Lakers have enjoyed a 98.6 defensive rating; with him off, the rating has risen to 104.8, and the Lakers have fallen out of the top defensive spot in the last few weeks.The Lakers have appreciated Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s contributions since becoming a starter, as he’s averaged 12.3 points while shooting 54.5 percent from 3-point range entering Friday night. But the Lakers will also welcome bringing him off the bench to improve the defense of the second unit when Bradley is cleared to return and resumes starting.“He’s one of our better two-way players,” Vogel said. “He really sets the tone for us on the defensive end. KCP has really picked up the slack and played extremely well in his absence, but when (Avery) moves up, we’ll have him off the bench. So it impacts your depth a little bit, and obviously Avery was giving us scoring punch as well, so we’ve missed him.”last_img read more
