The seven-foot-tall Mbenga was signed by the Lakers in January 2008 after being cut by the Warriors; he won two championship rings as a reserve with the Lakers. Mbenga became a free agent in July.

Mbgenga played in 49 regular season games for the Lakers in in 2009-10 and averaged 2.1 points and 1.8 rebounds.
