Lakers sign Thomas Robinson to training camp roster

The Lakers made the final touches on their training camp roster for next week. They signed free-agent forward Thomas Robinson to what is believed to be a one-year deal.

The Lakers currently have 19 players signed on their roster. But they will soon reach the NBA-maximum 20 players for training camp with the expected signing of veteran forward Metta World Peace.

After the Sacramento Kings drafted him fifth overall in the 2012 NBA Draft, Robinson has played four NBA seasons with the Kings (2012-13), Houston Rockets (2012-13), Portland Trail Blazers (2013-15), Philadelphia 76ers (2015) and Brooklyn Nets (2015-16). The 25-year-old Robinson has averaged 4.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game.

Robinson will face stiff competition amid a Lakers frontline that also includes Julius Randle, Larry Nance Jr, Luol Deng, Tarik Black and World Peace.
