The Los Angeles Lakers point guard Alex Caruso shared thoughts on his previous seasons in LA and the coming one, per ClutchPoints:

On benefits from circumstance: “If Lonzo [Ball] and [Brandon] Ingram weren’t injured a couple of things wouldn’t have gone my way. If Luke Walton was not my coach, [I might not have got the opportunity]. I’m a big believer in everything happens for a reason.”

On expectations from the upcoming season: “I’ve been assured an opportunity to get minutes, and I think I complement this team very well, but obviously, nothing is given to you. It will be a fun test for me to see how I adjust to playing 82 games. I think I will still be going off of adrenaline.”

This past season, the 25-year-old cult icon averaged 9.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.
