On the latest episode of The Lake Lake Show, two-way player Devontae Cacok spoke about what it’s like being around LeBron James and Anthony Davis on a regular basis. Along with the rest of the Los Angeles Lakers’ deep veteran roster.
“Going straight to the Lakers organisation, it’s a whole different side to basketball. The travel, the hotels, the food. Obviously being with the Lakers, LeBron, AD, JaVale, Danny Green, Jared Dudley. Like all these veterans that everybody in the world knows and I obviously know. It was very surreal for me to come from Wilmington and be able to see these guys, work out with these guys, and be on the same court as these guys. To practice with these guys. To just learn from them, I try to ask a couple of questions.”
“Me, Kostas, we played one-on-one with AD a couple of times. With DeMarcus Cousins watching us. I never would have thought a year ago I’d be saying that or had experienced that. Obviously I got to stay level headed. It’s a blessing to be around these guys, and learn from them.”
Devontae Cacok discusses his strong Laker bonds:
When asked about who “takes him under their wing” on the roster, Cacok discussed his strong bonds with both Quinn Cook and Alex Caruso. Who particularly supported him when he was waived by the Lakers following pre-season.
After impressing in the G League, the 23-year-old forward/center fought his way to earn a two-way contract in December. He has remained ever since.
“I would say back from pre-season, Quinn Cook and AC. Alex Caruso. Those two guys, they really helped me out. I went through a lot of ups and downs when I got waived from the Lakers, cause I thought I had a really good opportunity of getting that two-way from the beginning. I talked to Quinn and he gave me a lot of feedback. AC during the pre-season games, me and him played a lot together, we came off each other. Those guys I was able to really talk to and connect with them and ask them questions. They were able to give me a lot of knowledge.”
