Lakers sign Xavier Henry


The Lakers continue their spree of signings, this time adding another wing player who they were rumored to have interest in.

 

 

After the team had rumored interest in the wingman yesterday, the team confirmed those rumblings with the signing of him today.

 

Henry is just three years removed from being the 12th overall draft pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. However, a lack of consistent production has landed him at the end of the bench in Memphis and New Orleans. Still, the Lakers have shown a desire to bring in the risky, potential bust players this summer with the signing of Wes Johnson as another example. Henry will have his work cut out for him in training camp as he’ll need to beat out Johnson, Elias Harris, and others for a potential roster spot.
