The Lakers waived Andrew Goudelock on Saturday, bringing the team’s roster down to the league-maximum of 15 players.

Goudelock wasn’t expected to make the team with the offseason addition of starting point guard Steve Nash, and with Steve Blake and Chris Duhon firmly in place with guaranteed contracts, it wouldn’t have made sense from a financial standpoint to let one of them go instead.
