Lakers Second-Round Pick Signs in Spain

Lakers second-round pick Chinemelu Elonu signed a two-year contract with the Spanish team CAI Zaragoza.

As such, Elonu will not appear at Lakers training camp this season, though the Texas A&M product does have an opt-out clause in his contract after the first season and the Lakers will retain his NBA rights.

At the Las Vegas Summer League in July, Elonu averaged 8.2 points and 6.2 rebounds, including 16 points and eight boards in L.A.’s final game.
