Cam Oliver is signing an Exhibit 10 deal with the Lakers, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA.

The 25-year-old wing played four games with the Houston Rockets last season. He went undrafted in 2017.

He's about the same size as Keif. Listed at 6'8" 240 with a 7' 1.25 wingspan. He could be a small-ball center. Here are some highlights from a year ago.

Looks like a much better prospect then Kostas and Cacok.

Why would we waste the exhibit 10 on this guy?

Also, what is the Exhibit 10?

An Exhibit 10 contract is more or less just a training camp invite. However, it gives the team flexibility to convert the contract to a two-way deal before the start of the season if they so choose. Otherwise, the deal converts into a non-guaranteed minimum salary.

The exhibit 10 allows the player to receive up to $50,000 if he does not make the regular roster (waived) and he reports to the gleague team which in this case is the South Bay Lakers.

Time to cue up the DVR and watch the GSW summer league games.

Most likely he is bound for South Bay.

Nice 360 dunk. No clue who he is, but our scout team is as impressive as always.

Hopefully this guy has enough work ethic and desire to allow our staff to mold him into the athletic 3-and-D forward we really need.

Cacok definitely overperformed what he did in college, showing a lot more offensive translation and hops than I expected. He's a worker. But he's a 6'7" center on offense, which limits the upside. On defense, can really rebound and has toughness and short-range quickness, but the defense by height, foul proneness and inability to protect rim hurt him. He was awesome in the G-league but in ways that couldn't really translate to the league. He's just of the wrong archetype. 15 years ago he'd be getting Craig "The Rhino" Smith minutes.

Oliver's a 6'8" 225 lb smallball 4/5 type, but has more 4 qualities than Cacok. I actually ranked him as a top-45 pick in the 2017 draft (he was undrafted). The first thing that jumps out at you is that he physically imposes with big-boy athleticism. He's well-built for his size, is an absolute dunk machine, and just an excellent rebounder and shotblocker. There's really some Stromile Swift-like qualities here in terms of the sheer athleticism with an attempt at floor spacing (but nothing trustworthy). He's unrefined, ball-skills wise and in foul control. If he sticks, he can learn from our guys and he'll be fun to watch at garbage time.

Watched a couple of summer league games.

He is active on the boards with a good motor. He has vertical twitch but is not a high jumper from a standing 2 foot jump if that makes sense. Think rebound jump versus running jump. He has a good wingspan but what looks like and average standing reach. He is stout with a thick wide chest that inflates his wingspan measurement.

Given his height and being limited to either PF or small ball C he needs to model his game after Mike Scott. It appears the foundation of a 3pt shot is there but he needs to get to Scott's level to make it in the league.

Wish the young man well. Lakers could certainly use another “ big” to fill out the roster.

But the best statement I saw about him is “ he will be fun to watch in garbage time”. Seems to fit my expectations if he earns that 14th roster spot.
