Vanderbilt basketball’s Scotty Pippen Jr. signs two-way deal with Los Angeles Lakers | Report


Former Vanderbilt guard Scotty Pippen Jr. has signed a two-way contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to a report by Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Pippen, a two-time All-SEC player for the Commodores, went undrafted in the two-round NBA draft, but he landed an undrafted free agent contract shortly after the draft concluded.

Although Pippen was one of the top performers in the SEC, he was not expected to be drafted due to his short stature and limited athleticism. Yet he received a contract in which he will spend most of his time in the NBA G-League while being able to be “called up” to the NBA.

Pippen, the son of NBA legend Scottie Pippen, is originally from Los Angeles and attended Sierra Canyon High School.

Pippen has performed well in the NBA combine and can improve his shooting and ball handling when he isn’t counted on to be such a used player.
