Wenyen's too good for the g-league, so I can see the Lakers trying to give him some minutes. He could probably kill it overseas, but I understand why he wants to stay here. Still young! _________________ "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." — Gandhi

Speaking of 6’ 9”, I miss Kuzma. The Lakers do too. He’s playing very efficiently in D.C. His 17 & 8.8, plus his height and defensive abilities would provide a lot more options than Vogel has this year.
As someone said, the Lakers started the season with more guards than Buckingham Palace.
Wenyen Gabriel got in during garbage time but showed heart, hustle and athleticism, things that this team is sorely lacking.
WG has a lot of defensive potential. He plays hard defensively and rebounds well.

Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
The Lakers are waiving forward Sekou Doumbouya to make room to sign forward Wenyen Gabriel to a two-way contract, league sources tell @TheAthletic.
So this person is better than Sekou? Was Sekou near the limit of how many games he could play is a two-way player why not just bring him back up?
Sekou was not even close to being the best player with the South Bay Lakers.
I don't know if it's his injury or not but things never got rolling for him in South Bay.
Wenyen G. & Doumbouya have similar game.
I actually don't even remember seeing him in the SBL games that I watched. I was more thinking about having some continuity for a damn change. But if Sekou is wack then that's not helpful so… I don't know anything about Wenyen besides what folks have posted here so I shall keep an open mind.
They definitely don't have similar game. _________________ Resident Car Nut.
