Jodie Meeks, Lakers Agree to 2-Year, $3M Contract

Lost among L.A.’s blockbuster offseason moves, reserve SG Jodie Meeks has accepted a two-year deal worth about $3 million to play for the Lakers. Meeks will immediately bolster the team’s outside shooting—one of the Lakers’ biggest issues last season. The L.A. Times reports that Meeks said he had larger offers from the Bucks and Wizards, but wanted to sign with the Lakers for a chance to win a chip:

    Sneaky good move, if he’s right either Barnes of Artest better come right cause they’re not takin mins from Meeks…

    Meeks: “Size me up!” As he puts up his ringless left hand up…

    if he finds his shot back, this will turn out to be a HUGE move for them. They could surround Howard & Gasol with Bryant, Meeks, and Nash. You wouldn’t be able to help off of anyone with that lineup.

    Heals: Mitch resigned ebanks so Barnes is history. Meeks will be coming off the bench for Kobe and maybe in small spurts for Nash. The
    Lakers are stacked at forward. My gawd,Pau, MWP, Jamison, Ebanks, McRoberts, hill! Ebanks and meeks will be vital in the speed and athleticism department, something the Lakers have sorely missed without guys like Shannon brown, Odom and Ariza. The job Mitch has done is amazing. To have added guys like Nash and D12 while keeping Pau? At the same time creating a bench with real depth in Blake/Meeks/ebanks/Jamison/Hill. with spare parts like Mcroberts,and Goudelock. He’s writing the book on the re’up.

    He can shoot but he can’t create his own shoot. Good move, but nothing spectacular. Now they need to move Blake and Duhon and get a decent backup PG and add some veteran PF/C.
