Brown, a teammate of Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson as a junior last season at Missouri, averaged 19.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in 2013-14 before declaring himself eligible for the NBA Draft.

Smith was a member of the Lakers 2014 Summer League team, appearing in all five games after a three-year college career at UConn (2010-12) and ultimately UNLV (2013-14), where he averaged 11.1 points and 10.9 rebounds, while shooting 53.1% from the field.

Tyler is a three-year NBA veteran who has played in 104 games (23 starts) with the Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks, and New York Knicks, averaging 3.6 points and 2.6 rebounds in 9.9 minutes per contest.
