McCauley played 32 minutes, hitting 12-of-19 shots while playing primarily the forward position.
"I was playing (center) in college, and all I did was go block to block," McCauley told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "Nobody knew I had the skills to do these other things.
"It's a great opportunity. I'm trying to take advantage of it as much as I can. I just hope I can keep it going."
The Lakers' summer league coach is Wolfpack great Chucky Brown, who believes McCauley could fit L.A.'s system.
"He's a smart player who can pass and shoot," Brown said of McCauley. "He's perfect for the triangle."
Los Angeles returns to the floor today at 6:00 EST against Cleveland. A rookie free agent, McCauley will be looking to impress not only the Lakers but also other teams.
