Lakers news: Wesley Johnson agrees to 1-year deal, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

The Lakers have added another player to their perimeter rotation.

The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a one-year, veteran's minimum deal with Wesley Johnson, reports Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. Johnson was the fourth-overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. The Lakers will be his third team in four seasons.

The Lakers add Johnson to a core wing players featuring recently signed Nick Young, Jodie Meeks, and Kobe Bryant. Johnson can serve as a another insurance policy while the Lakers wait for Bryant to return from his Achilles injury. He can fill in at both shooting guard and small forward -- two positions that the Lakers need depth at going into the 2013-2014 season.

Johnson adds youth, athleticism and length to the Lakers' perimeter rotation. He is also one of the handful of players discussed in our free agent capsules, which can be read here.

He averaged 8 points per game, 40% from the field, 32% three-point range and 2.5 rebounds per game.
