UPDATE: According to USA Today's Sam Amick, Price's veteran's minimum deal is fully non-guaranteed.

Original story follows

The Lakers front office has already had a busy week, between signing Wayne Ellington on Monday, and extending training invitations to Roscoe Smith, Keith Appling, Jabari Brown, and Jeremy Tyler yesterday. Today, their week of transactions continues, having agreed to contract terms with veteran point guard Ronnie Price, per a team press release. The deal is for the minimum, according to USA Today Sports.

The former undrafted free agent out of Utah Valley State joins a crowded point guard competition, with Appling (if he makes the team), rookie Jordan Clarkson, Steve Nash, and Jeremy Lin presumably fighting for minutes there. The 31-year old brings 9 years of NBA experience with averages of 3.4 points (on 38% shooting), 1.1 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in 11.7 minutes per game. Lakers training camp begins with Media Day next Monday, September 29th.

Bonus: If #RandlesHandles weren't already going to make intrasquad camp scrimmages a must watch, there is the prospect of Price giving us a flashback to this poster on his now teammate Carlos Boozer.
