Report: Meeks agrees to terms with Lakers
Kobe Bryant. Pau Gasol. Steve Nash. Dwight Howard.
And Jodie Meeks.
The former Sixers sharpshooter agreed to terms on Friday on a two-year deal with the Lakers, according to the Los Angeles Times
. The deal is in the neighborhood of $3 million, and the second year is a team option.
In 200 games and 114 starts, Meeks has averaged 8.1 points on 37.1 percent three-point shooting. He’s also an 88-percent free throw shooter.
He joins the Lakers on the same day a four-team trade was finalized that sent Howard to L.A. and Andrew Bynum to the Sixers.
Meeks spent three years with the Sixers and scored a career-high 31 points on March 27 against the Cavaliers.
He’ll joins a crowded Lakers backcourt that also includes Nash, Bryant, Steve Blake, Chris Duhon, Darius Johnson-Odom and Andrew Goudelock.
