2022-23 NBA Stats: 34 GP | 22 GS | 22.4 MPG | 13.0 PPG | 7.2 RPG | 0.6 BPG | 63.9 FG%
After Bryant’s two seasons for Indiana basketball where he averaged 12.2 points and 6.2 rebounds on 59.2 percent shooting from the field, he entered his name in the 2017 NBA Draft and was selected 42nd overall by the Utah Jazz but then was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.
In his rookie campaign, Bryant averaged just 4.8 minutes and 1.5 points in 15 games played for the Lakers. After his rookie season, Bryant was waived by the Lakers during the offseason and was picked up by the Washington Wizards where he played five seasons and turned himself into an impressive role-playing big man in the NBA.
After not appearing in any games until November 18 this season, Bryant has played a huge role for the Lakers alongside LeBron James, where the Indiana basketball alum has posted nine double-doubles, including a 31-point and 14-rebound effort on January 22 against the Portland Trail Blazers.
