The Lakers have signed 2017 first-round pick Harry Giles to a two-way contract. The Purple and Gold have needed more size with Christian Wood, Colin Castleton, and Jarred Vanderbilt out.

To make this move, LA has waived Dylan Windler, who appeared in eight games with the team.

Giles has appeared in 16 games with the Brooklyn Nets this season, averaging 3/2/0 on 50/27/54 shooting splits.

The 25-year-old has struggled to find a consistent role in the NBA. However, he is talented, and with his six-foot-ten frame, he will provide the depth that the Lakers need at big. 

Giles likely won’t see a ton of minutes, but this is a solid signing to help the LakeShow have enough depth in the frontcourt.

The Lakers take on the reigning champion Denver Nuggets on Saturday, riding in on a two-game win streak. Giles may play some minutes amid the injuries to Wood and Castleton.
