EL SEGUNDO - The Los Angeles Lakers have signed free agent guardforward Jason Kapono, it was announced Friday. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released. Kapono, an eight-year NBA veteran, comes to the Lakers with the sixth highest career three-point field goal percentage (.437) in NBA history. A two-time winner of the Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout during All-Star Weekend in 2007 and 2008, Kapono was also a member of the NBA Champion Miami Heat in 2006-07, leading the NBA with a .514 three-point field goal percentage that currently ranks as the sixth-highest single season total in NBA history. Selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round (31st overall) of the 2003 NBA Draft after concluding his four-year college career at UCLA ranked third on the Bruins all-time scoring list, Kapono has played in 482 career NBA games with Cleveland, Charlotte, Miami, Toronto and Philadelphia, averaging 6.9 points (.443 FG, .437 3FG), 1.7 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 18.3 minutes. The Lakers also signed rookie guards Darius Morris and Andrew Goudelock. Morris, selected by the Lakers in the second round (41st overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft, appeared in 67 games (53 starts) in two seasons at the University of Michigan, averaging 9.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists. The 51st Wolverine to be drafted into the NBA, Morris was an All-Big Ten Third Team selection last season as well as just the third player in Michigan history to record a triple-double (12 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists) 13011 vs. Iowa. The first Wolverine to lead the Big Ten in assists since Gary Grant in 1988, Morris set a U-of-M record for assists in a single season (235) last year while leading the team to an eight seed in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Goudelock, selected by the Lakers in the second round (46th overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft, appeared in 140 games (124 starts) in four seasons at the College of Charleston, averaging 18.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists. The all-time leading scorer in College of Charleston history (2,571) and third all-time in Southern Conference history, Goudelock became the 62nd player in NCAA Division I mens basketball history to record 2,500 career points and ranks 39th all-time in career scoring. As a senior, he averaged 23.7 points, ranking fourth nationally among NCAA Division I scoring leaders while earning All-America honorable mention honors from The Associated Press.
