|Lonnie Walker: Joins Lakers on one-year deal|
Walker and the Lakers agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million contract Thursday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.
The Scoop: After having his qualifying offer pulled by the Spurs earlier in the day Thursday, Walker will head to LA to help improve the team's backcourt following the departure of Malik Monk. The 23-year-old Walker is coming off a 2021-22 season in which he averaged 12.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists. Walker could see a significant role either as a potential starter or a depth role off the bench behind Austin Reaves or Talen Horton-Tucker.
