Lakers sign undrafted rookie Caroline to Exhibit 10 contract

Undrafted rookie forward Jordan Caroline spent three seasons at Nevada.

The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a contract with undrafted rookie forward Jordan Caroline, the team announced.

Caroline is signing an Exhibit 10 deal, according to Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen and Roll.

Caroline is 6-foot-7 and spent the previous three seasons at Nevada after transferring from Southern Illinois.

He averaged 14.8 points and 8.4 rebounds this past season and is Nevada’s all-time leader in career rebounds.

He becomes the third undrafted rookie signed by the Lakers this summer, joining guard Zach Norvell (Gonzaga, two-way) and power forward Devontae Cacock (UNC Wilmington, Exhibit 10). The Lakers reportedly have also signed undrafted power forward Aric Holman (Mississippi State).

“An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, minimum salary NBA contract with a specific Exhibit 10 attachment built into it and no other bonuses,” SLAM Online explained. “These attachments are not present in every NBA contract, only deals in which both parties have agreed to include it.

“Exhibit 10 attachments allow the NBA team to convert a player’s one-year, minimum contract into a two-way contract but this has to occur prior to the start of the regular season.”
