Grading the Lakers’ Final 15-Man Roster

The Los Angeles Lakers have assembled one of the most jumbled groups of talent in recent memory in order to fill out their opening-day roster. 

With a roster that runs the gamut from superstars to partially guaranteed training camp invitees, a wide range of players will be contributing and playing significant roles for the 2013-14 Lakers.

One housekeeping note before we get started: Throughout the slideshow, each positional unit will be broken down and given a grade, with a composite score listed at the conclusion.
