The Los Angeles Lakers have begun finalizing their contracts for the '15-16 season with a small window to sort through their salary structure prior to the beginning of Las Vegas Summer League. Second-round pick Anthony Brown has signed a three-year contract with a team option on the final year, reports Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. He will be available to play in the Lakers' exhibition opener.
Brown was the 34th-overall selection in the 2015 NBA Draft, standing out to the Lakers after wrapping up his 145-game career at Stanford. Anthony shot 44.7 percent from three-point range through his final two seasons with the Cardinals, and the Lakers are hoping his perimeter shooting translates at the next level.
The Lakers have been patient with locking in salary, waiting until the NBA announced the final cap figures before tying up their money. The team is also hopeful to sign D'Angelo Russell prior to their opening Summer League game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday at 5:30 p.m. PT.
Los Angeles is also expected to finalize the Roy HIbbert trade with the Indiana Pacers later today, and has finalized the signing of Lou Williams.
