Ivica Zubac played 20 minutes on Sunday, finishing with 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, seven rebounds and two blocks. Zubac has had plenty of rough spots during Summer League and he came in averaging just 10.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in 20.2 minutes, while shooting 41.2 percent from the field. He feasted on easy buckets tonight and we're not worried about some quiet performances in Vegas, but the arrival of Brook Lopez has thrown cold water on his season-long fantasy outlook.

Ivica Zubac was quiet in Monday's 95-92 win over the Kings, scoring eight points on 2-of-6 shooting (4-of-4 FTs) with zero rebounds, two assists and four turnovers in 23 minutes. He hasn't been great this summer and was only averaging 6.0 points, 3.0 boards and 0.5 blocks in his previous two games. Zubac has been working on expanding his range, but it's still a work in progress and he missed his only 3-point attempt tonight. The Lakers didn't do him any favors by bringing in Brook Lopez, so Zubac may not be relevant in standard leagues until late in the season when player development becomes the focus.

Zubac no longer has a clear path to minutes for the 2017-18 season after the Lakers' acquisition of Brook Lopez on Tuesday.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has "expressed interest" in helping Ivica Zubac develop his post game. Yes, this includes his famous skyhook that Zubac was already using during his rookie season. "He’s equipped to use it well," Abdul-Jabbar said of Zubac. "He has the length to begin with. If he can develop his shooting touch and agility, he’ll use it well." Abdul-Jabbar is expected to meet with Magic Johnson in the next couple weeks to discuss a potential role with the franchise, but this is just another reason to be excited about the 20-year-old's long-term potential. With a strong offseason, Zubac will likely be the favorite to start over Timofey Mozgov on opening night.

Ivica Zubac is confident that he can start for the Lakers next season. "I know I can start. I already started a few games," he said. "I think going into training camp, I’m going to have to prove myself again and prove what can I do. Hopefully I’m going to work a lot. Hopefully I’m going to get a starting spot." Timofey Mozgov and Tarik Black are his only current competition, and Black isn't a lock to return, so the odds are good for Zubac. A strong offseason would go a long way to increasing his fantasy appeal.

Coach Luke Walton said there would be an open competition for the Lakers starting center spot in training camp. The Lakers signed Timofey Mozgov to a four-year, $64-million deal last June, but benched him during the second half of the season. Ivica Zubac started ten games in March before a high ankle sprain sidelined him for the year. Zubac averaged 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds in those 10 starts. "I didn’t expect to play as much this season as I played. As soon as I got my chance, I showcased my skill and tried to help my team," said Zubac. "I know I can start." This will be a position battle to keep an eye on in October.
