25-Year-Old GuardG
Los Angeles Lakers
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Caruso is an explosive guard from Texas A&M University who has made a name for himself in the G League, averaging 19.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 7.7 assists per game with the South Bay Lakers in 2017-18. He played well enough to earn some time at the NBA level with the Lakers, starting seven games out of the 37 he was on the roster while chipping in with 3.7 points per game. Caruso's game high was 15 points against the Clippers. Caruso will not receive many minutes this season with the addition of Rajon Rondo to go along with the two young guards already in place, Josh Hart and Lonzo Ball. However, Caruso is still young at 25 and can still gain a bench spot at some point but will have to prove himself once again in the G League. Read Past Outlooks
