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.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.
