Juan Toscano-Anderson joins Lakers in free agency

The Warriors bench player hopes to make an impact in LA.

The Los Angeles Lakers have reached an agreement with Juan Toscano-Anderson in free agency per Chris Haynes. Toscano-Anderson comes from the Warriors after winning the NBA championship in 2022.

It’ll be interesting to see what kind of role Toscano-Anderson has with the Lakers, as he’s likely going to be a backup for wing minutes. With Lonnie Walker likely taking priority in Darvin Ham’s projected rotation, it’s hard to see how Toscano-Anderson can make an impact on the court consistently. He may have developed some big-time skills behind the scenes with Golden State and simply didn’t get the chance to showcase them. He does bring some championship experience and will definitely be able to bring along some of the younger guys on the Lakers like Austin Reaves, Talen Horton-Tucker, Walker and rookie Max Christie. If those guys develop good habits, Toscano-Anderson likely has a hand in why.
