Former Gopher Trevor Mbakwe is heading to Tinsel Town. Mbakwe was invited by the Los Angeles Lakers to participate on their summer league team. "This is a dream come true." he said. After a successful season in Italy, where he averaged 10 points and 10 rebounds, he now makes his best pitch to finally make it on a NBA roster. The Lakers could use his help.  Los Angeles finished a dismal 27-55 record this past season and have an ageing roster.

Mbakwe feels he has a good chance to make the team and says his maturity has helped his overall game.
