Lakers re-sign Sekou Doumbouya to two-way contract, waive Jay Huff

Doumbouya was previously a two-way player for the Lakers this season after he started the season in Brooklyn before being waived.

However, a foot injury left Doumbouya unavailable to play and with the Lakers dealing with their own injury crisis for much of the season, the team opted to waive Doumbouya and sign Chaundee Brown at the time.

Still just 21 years old and in his third season in the league, Doumbouya has the possibility of becoming a contributor still in his career. The Lakers have already struck gold in a similar manner by bringing in Stanley Johnson this season and watching him turn into a contributor.

In the multiple months since then, the Lakers roster has continued to undergo changes both in construction and in philosophy. The team’s commitment to a small ball philosophy paired with Doumbouya returning to full health led to the Lakers bringing him back in while parting ways with Huff.
