10 DeAndre Jordan  C
11 Malik Monk  SG

It is important to note, however, that amongst that final squad, there are some notable new faces as they prepare to start their campaign.

Who are the Los Angeles Lakers' new signings?

Who did the Lakers cut?

As the Lakers prepare for the 2021 NBA regular season there were of course some players who were let go as competition is fierce. Cam Oliver, Chaundee Brown, Trevelin Queen, and Joel Ayayi have all been cut. They join Mac McClung and Frank Mason III, both of whom were released earlier in the preseason. In the case of Oliver, Queen, and Brown they will more than likely find themselves playing for the Lakers G-League affiliate, the South Bay Lakers.
