On guard

Lakers spokesman John Black just called to point out a mistake down deep in today’s story on Sun Yue. Coby Karl is under contract for next season, the second season of a two-year deal he signed with the Lakers last summer. Karl must make the roster for the second season to be guaranteed, however. If the Lakers cut him during training camp, he’ll then be a free agent.
At any rate, the competition for playing time among the guards figures to be intense during camp, what with Sun and Dwayne Mitchell added to the mix. It will be one of the many storylines of camp.
