The Los Angeles Lakers have waived point guard Demetrius Jackson and center Devonte Cacock, the team announced in a news release.

The Lakers now have 14 players on guaranteed salaries, with veteran center Dwight Howard and his non-guaranteed deal taking up the final roster spot.

Jackson is 6-foot-1 and spent last season with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Delaware Blue Coats of the G League. He has also played for the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets.

Cacock is 6-7 and went undrafted out of UNC Wilmington in June. He averaged 15.2 points and 12.3 rebounds as a senior, and set the NCAA record with 80 percent shooting from the field in 2016-17.
