The Lakers have agreed to terms on an Exhibit 10 contract with Oregon State standout Tres Tinkle, Stadium’s Jeff Goodman was first to report (Twitter link).
Tinkle, 24, went undrafted in Wednesday’s virtual NBA Draft after showing his scoring process across five seasons with the Beavers. An Exhibit 10 contract is a non-guaranteed one-year, minimum salary pact that allows a player to make a bonus of up to $50K if he is waived and remains on the franchise’s G League squad for at least 60 days.
After returning to Oregon State for his final year in 2019/20, the three-time First-Team All-Pac-12 standout became the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,233 points. A broken wrist in his sophomore season limited Tinkle to just six games but met requirements for a medical redshirt and regained a year of eligibility.
In 31 games this past collegiate campaign, the 6’7″ Tinkle averaged 18.5 PPG and 6.8 RPG across 34.5 minutes per game. For his college career, Tinkle averaged 17.7 PPG, 7.0 RPG, and 3.0 APG while shooting 46.0% from the field.
