Stephen Curry laments Kent Bazemore's departure to LA Lakers
Kent Bazemore has signed a one-year deal with his former side the LA Lakers, returning for a second stint with the Purple and Gold. Bazemore was with the Golden State Warriors last year, playing alongside their talismanic point guard Stephen Curry.
Recently, Bazemore put up a social media post thanking the LA Lakers for allowing him to play with them, to which a dejected Stephen Curry responded with a “Congrats bro! Gonna cry when I get in the car tho” comment.
Bazemore averaged 7.2 points and 3.4 rebounds for the Golden State Warriors last season, sliding into his role as a veteran role player to perfection. He was with the LA Lakers during the 2013-14 season, putting up a career-high 13 points along with 3 rebounds and 3 assists per game.
