Crawford signs

Joe Crawford, the team’s lone draft pick in June, signed today. Crawford, a 6-foot-5 guard from Kentucky, averaged 11.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in six starts with the Lakers’ summer league team in Las Vegas — respectable statistics.
Crawford is caught in a numbers game in the backcourt, however. He joins Jordan Farmar, Coby Karl, Dwayne Mitchell, Sasha Vujacic and Sun Yue in a training camp battle royale for minutes.Expect Crawford to spend some with the D-League’s D-Fenders this season.
Crawford was a second-round pick (No. 58 overall) after spending four seasons with Kentucky, making him a rare selection in the NBA draft these days. Most college players put in only the required one season (or two at the outside) before opting for the draft.
