Earlier this week, the Los Angeles Lakers reportedly worked out 14 players at the team’s practice facility.. After signing forward Jonathan Holmes to a multi-year deal on August 13, general manager Mitch Kupchak and company have made another move.
According to Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops (via OnlyGators.com), the Lakers have agreed to terms with former Florida shooting guard, Michael Frazier:
Lakers have agreed to terms with Michael Frazier (Florida) on a 2-yr, partially guaranteed deal, league source confirms. @onlygators first.

After averaging 12.1 points and 4.1 rebounds this past season for Florida, the shooting guard declared for this year’s NBA Draft where he went undrafted. While the Lakers have reportedly signed him to a two-year deal, it is only partially guaranteed according to Scotto.
With one roster spot remaining, Kupchak shared the Lakers could look to add another point guard or center. While Los Angeles could use a small forward to balance the roster, Kobe Bryant will likely slide to that position to allow a D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson starting backcourt.
