The Los Angeles Lakers are bringing back restricted free-agent guard Marcelo Huertas.

The 33-year-old has agreed to a two-year pact.

Huertas averaged 4.5 points and 3.4 assists in 53 games last season.

Per Yahoo:

Huertas, 33, completed his first NBA season after a 14-year career in South America and Europe.

 

Huertas will be the third point guard on a roster that added Jose Calderon in a trade with Chicago on Wednesday. D’Angelo Russell will be the Lakers’ starting point guard.

 

Huertas’ ability to distribute the ball and settle the Lakers’ offense turned him into a dependable presence for the Lakers.
