When free agency opened, the Los Angeles Lakers were expected to make some of the biggest noise of the offseason. That hasn't been the case just yet, but they have got their first free-agent move on the board.
Per multiple reports -- and first reported by The Athletic's Shams Charania -- forward Troy Daniels has agreed to a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Lakers. The journeyman has spent the last two seasons with the Phoenix Suns and has a solid 3-point stroke. Last season, he made 38.1 percent of his 3-pointers and averaged 6.2 points per game as a reserve.
Free agent Troy Daniels has agreed to a one-year, $2.1M with the Lakers, agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports tells @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. Daniels gives the Lakers an elite shooter to pair with LeBron James and Anthony Davis and does not affect the team’s cap space.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 1, 2019
