Juan Toscano Anderson in Los Angeles Lakers gear was spotted on the sidelines celebrating against the Warriors » FirstSportz

Regular season league games have yet to begin, but we have Summer League games to watch out for for the budding players who are making their claims to regular NBA action. In the last game, the Los Angeles Lakers met the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. It was young players on both sides who wanted to make enough noise to earn their place in their respective squads for the upcoming season. In a surprise appearance, new Lakers signing Juan Toscano-Anderson sat on the sidelines during the game. And there was no mistaking which team he’s supporting here – it’s his new employer’s LA Lakers.

Anderson posed for the camera as he proudly displayed his Kobe Bryant jersey. But the game was played on the Warriors’ home field; He struggled to hide his affinity a bit here by donning a black jacket over his Lakers jersey. JTA recently won an NBA trophy in Dubs uniform.

Can Juan Toscano Anderson help LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers win a record-breaking 18th championship?

Reigning champions Golden State Warriors have had some trouble keeping up with the cap space available. After spending heavily on salaries, the Dubs became the 30th team with the available cap spot. They had to take out some of the role players. After his contract with the Warriors expired at the end of the 2022–23 season, Toscano-Anderson was fired by the Warriors.

But he quickly decided to use his talent to beat the 17-time NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers by signing a minimum one-year contract with the team. The 29-year-old star played 73 regular-season games for the Warriors, averaging 4 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists in limited time on the court. He could get some more court time in purple and yellow after their last season lapsed.

Juan shot 50% from the field while firing 1/3 of his long-range shots. That percentage could come in handy for the Lakers, especially if LeBron gives James the shot. It’s too early to understand the perfect role for the local athlete in the Lakers franchise; We may need to review all other trades/signings and exits to get more into the details. But a proven effective star would be a great signing for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Speaking of signings, the summer league game itself had plenty of prospects for the LA team. It was the Lakers who clinched the big win in Sunday’s game, knocking out the Warriors 100-77. Scotty Pippen Jr. stole the show again for purple and gold by recording 15 points, eight assists, three steals and zero turnovers in 20 minutes.

The Los Angeles team wants to build a team centered around LeBron James who is scrambling to repeat the 2020 championship run with the Lakers. With the fit Anthony Davis, LeBron James and maybe a rejuvenated Roaster, the LA Lakers could present a strong challenge for the title this season. Also, many eyes will be on Russell Westbrook’s situation, whether he stays and how his MVP season plays, or trades for another star to help the Lakers hit new highs.
