Javaris Crittenton's NBA Career Stays Alive On Lakers' Summer League Team

It was pretty much assumed that Javaris Crittenton's NBA career was basically over following his little gun horseplay with Gilbert Arenas. The Wizards hadn't picked up his contract option for next season even before the incident, and it was hard to believe any NBA team would sign him with the gun situation looming over his head.

But apparently Crittenton's NBA career does have a flicker of hope. The Lakers, who originally drafted him in 2007, will give Crittenton a chance to show his stuff on their Summer League team, according to Draft Express.

Javaris Crittenton (#13) made $1.4 million "playing" for the Washington Wizards this season, but was cut midway through the season and did not have the fourth year option on his rookie contract picked up last summer. He'll try to earn a contract playing summer league with the Lakers in Las Vegas from July 9-18.

Hey, the Lakers do need a point guard if Derek Fisher departs, so stranger things have happened.
