The Lakers signed undrafted rookie free agent Elias Harris three weeks after agreeing to terms on a two-year deal. Harris’ contract involves a partial guarantee at the veteran’s minimum his first season, while the Lakers hold a team option on the second season.
Harris averaged 10.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in five games with the Lakers in Las Vegas Summer League. The 6-8. 240-pound forward averaged 14.6 points and 7.4 rebounds last season at Gonzaga.
The Lakers currently have 12 players signed under contract for next season. Second-round draft pick Ryan Kelly is likely to stay with the team, bringing that number to 13. The Lakers are also expected to invite Marcus Landry to training camp after leading the team’s summer league in scoring. NBA teams are allowed to field a maximum of 15 players on their roster.
