After an impressive off-season performance, the Lakers officially inked wingman Marcus Landry on Monday, making him the 15th player on the Lakers roster.

While the terms of the deal aren’t official, it is believed to be a one-year deal. Landry joins Xavier Henry, Elias Harris, and Shawne Williams as low-risk, high reward signings this summer. Paired with Nick Young, Jordan Farmar, Wes Johnson and Chris Kaman, the Lakers have a large turnover in roster from a team that did squeak into the playoffs last year.
Landry led the Lakers this summer with 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 37.1% from three point range. Despite the low percentage, Landry is seen as a three point marksman with pick and pop potential and a possible stretch four option. With Ryan Kelly suffering apparent setbacks in his recovery from foot surgery, Landry has a great chance at making the Lakers regular season roster.
