Seeing Bass in Lakers colors undoubtedly is a bit strange for Celtics fans who watched the 30-year-old big man appear in every game for the C’s over the last three seasons. Bass gracefully took on a reduced role this past season, averaging 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
?I am excited to add a player of Brandon?s skill level and character to our roster,? Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said in a statement. ?His work ethic, toughness, and selfless play lend themselves well to our team.?
