Free agent Jodie Meeks agrees to two-year deal with Lakers
Shooting guard Jodie Meeks has accepted a two-year deal worth about $3 million to play for the Lakers. Meeks’ second year is a team option.
The move hardly warrants the same headlines as the Lakers’ other blockbuster offseason moves in acquiring Steve Nash and Dwight Howard but Meeks’ arrival gives the Lakers a solid option in relieving Kobe Bryant’s minutes and bolstering the team’s outside shooting.
The 6-foot-4 Meeks, who played for the Philadelphia 76ers in three of his four NBA seasons, averaged 8.4 points and 2.4 rebounds in 25 minutes a game last season, where he played in all 66 games, starting 50. Meeks also shot a career-high 37% from three-point range in the last two years.
