Caracter signs

Derrick Caracter, a second-round draft pick from Texas-El Paso, signed today with the Lakers, giving the team 14 players on the roster for 2010-11. Like fellow forward Devin Ebanks, Caracter will make $473,604 next season and $736,420 if he makes the team in 2011-12. The rookies impressed the Lakers during summer-league play last month in Las Vegas, with Caracter averaging a team-leading 15.4 points and 8.6 rebounds in five games. Either or both could fill roles if Luke Walton’s back continues to give him trouble.
