Jason Kapono to Ink 1-Year Deal With Lakers

by December 08, 2011

The Lakers will likely sign Jason Kapono tomorrow, with the expectation that he’ll improve the squad’s three-point shooting. From the Daily News: “Jason Kapono, a 3-point specialist, is expected to sign a one-season contract for the veteran’s minimum salary Friday, the first day free agents can sign contracts after the approval of the new collective bargaining agreement. The Lakers have lacked a consistent 3-point threat since they traded guard Sasha Vujacic to the New Jersey Nets for forward Joe Smith last December. Kapono, a former standout at UCLA and Artesia High of Lakewood, spent last season with Philadelphia.”
