Contract Status: Team Option
Karl only appeared in 17 games for L.A. this season, averaging just over four minutes of playing time—most of which came during garbage time. However, Karl instantly became a fan favorite at STAPLES Center, shooting 31% in three pointers and showing the potential to become a top-tier shooter for the Lakers down the road.
After spending time in the D-League and at the NBA level, Karl’s place on the Lakers’ roster is still up in the air heading into next season. Karl is expected to participate in the Vegas Summer League though where he’ll seek to fine-tune his court awareness, defensive game and ball-handling skills.
