The Lakers have agreed to terms with University of Florida guard Michael Frazier II, according to agent Matt Ramker of ASM Sports.
The terms of the deal haven’t been released, but Frazier is expected to sign later this week.
“We’ve verbally agreed on the terms, but he’ll be in L.A. in the next handful of days to take his physical and sign his contract,” Ramker said.
The 6-foot-5 Frazier went undrafted, but played for the Golden State Warriors NBA Summer League entry. Frazier, known for his perimeter shooting, made 43 percent of his 3-pointers during three seasons at Florida. His 3-point percentage dipped to 38 percent during his junior season, when he averaged 12.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
Frazier labeled himself the “best shooter in the draft,” during a June predraft workout for the Lakers.
After undrafted Texas forward Jonathan Holmes signed last week, the addition of Frazier will put the Lakers over the 15-man roster limit. The guard will be competing with up to four other players for what will likely be two or three available roster spots.
Should Frazier not make the team, he will play for the Lakers NBA developmental league affiliate, the D-Fenders.
“He’s one of the best shooters in this rookie class,” Ramker said. “And he’s a tremendous worker. He puts in the time. He’s a no nonsense kid and he’s very focused.”
Lakers are getting one of the best rookie shooters and a tremendous worker. Don't need an apartment, Michael Frazier sleeps in the gym.
