Actor Adam Sandler has been playing a lot of pickup basketball lately, and it appears he has his eye on the Los Angeles Lakers’ final roster spot.

The award-winning actor certainly would add some comedic relief to the Lakers’ roster, but he obviously wouldn’t help on the basketball court.

Sandler has been playing pickup with some NBA players this summer, but that’s still not going to get him a look in the league.

The Lakers have retooled their roster this offseason.

They added several veterans, including Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington and Rajon Rondo after getting knocked out in the first round of the playoffs last season.

The health of LeBron James and Anthony Davis will be key for the Lakers if they want to make another title run this season, but they seem to have upgraded their bench in case of any injury.
