The L.A. Lakers signed Shaq and Scottie Pippen's sons, Shareef and Scotty Jr., to deals following Thursday's NBA Draft.
The L.A. Lakers' summer roster just got a lot more interesting ... because after the NBA Draft this week, the team signed Shaq and Scottie Pippen's sons to deals!!
Both Shareef O'Neal and Scotty Pippen Jr. inked agreements with the Purple and Gold on Thursday night after going undrafted in the NBA's annual two-round selection event.
The sons of both NBA legends were fired up over the contracts. O'Neal posted a video of him like a baby in a Lakers jersey on his social media page to celebrate, while Pippen Jr. popped a bottle of champagne and then had a long hug with his family and famous Dad.
While the two aren't as gifted as their fathers (who the hell is?!?), both bring a ton to the Lakers' table. Shareef -- who played his college ball at both UCLA and LSU -- is a 6-foot-10, 225-pound big man who can stretch the floor.
Pippen Jr. -- a star at Vanderbilt the past three years -- is a 6-foot-1 guard who averaged 20.4 points per game in his final collegiate season.
