Talen Horton-Tucker emerged as one of the most promising homegrown talents for the Los Angeles Lakers during their 2020 title run in Orlando, Fla.
Horton-Tucker spent some time with the team’s G League affiliate South Bay Lakers, until working his way onto the roster full-time last season. His ability to create his own shot went on full display, and he was viewed as an integral piece of an otherwise thin backcourt during the Lakers’ title defense.
Despite his skill set as a scorer, Horton-Tucker served as a primary ball-handler in the rotation. While he certainly endured his fair share of growing pains, it is evident that the Purple and Gold are high on his potential moving forward.
