Lakers Rumors: Lou Williams Agrees To Sign With L.A. In Free Agency

Heading into free agency, Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak and company were looking to sign a frontcourt player. Unfortunately, the team was unable to land an All-Star like LaMarcus Aldridge and is finalizing a deal with the Indiana Pacers for Roy Hibbert.

Along with Hibbert, Lou Williams has agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal with the Lakers according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski:

With the Lakers selecting D’Angelo Russell with the second overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft to play alongside Jordan Clarkson, Williams is a surprise signing. Although the Lakers were among the teams interested in Williams before free agency, it was expected the team would be looking to upgrade their center and small forward positions with their projected $24 million in cap space.

After suffering a torn ACL in 2012, Williams has bounced back since and was named this past season’s Sixth Man of the Year. Appearing in 80 games off the bench for the Toronto Raptors, Williams averaged 15.5 points and 2.1 assists.
