Lakers Waive Coby Karl

The Lakers waived Coby Karl on Monday to trim the current roster down to 14 players.

An undrafted free agent signed by the Lakers last season, Karl appeared in 17 games to average 1.8 points and 0.8 boards in 4.2 minutes.

Karl was terrific, however, in 17 games with the L.A. D-Fenders of the D-league, as he averaged 17.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.1 steals in 37.6 minutes while posting a .411 3-point field goal percentage. In the playoffs, Karl managed 13.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 2.0 steals in 37.0 minutes.

The 6-5 guard from Boise State averaged 14.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.0 assists as a senior and was named First Team All-WAC. He scored 1,698 career points to rank third on Boise State’s all-time scoring charts, and is the current record holder for games played (127) and threes made (266).
