The Los Angeles Lakers and forward Josh McRoberts have agreed to a two-year deal, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com.
Roberts, a former Duke standout, will reportedly earn a total of $6 million.
The 24-year-old McRoberts averaged 7.4 points and 5.3 rebounds with the Indiana Pacers last season.
McRoberts will supply some much-needed size to a Lakers frontcourt that lost Lamar Odom via a trade and Derrick Caracter to a torn meniscus.
The Lakers have been actively engaged in trade talks, including a vetoed deal for Chris Paul, but have been unable to swing a trade.

The Clippers' trade for Chris Paul may not make them better than the Lakers but it certainly makes them more interesting.The Clippers now have put pressure on the Lakers, and how funny a sentence is that?
If Posey was to come back to Boston it'd have to be after he first cleared waivers, then cleared through the bidding process between all the teams under the cap. I expect that with his age and lack of production he'll make it through clean... but do the Celtics actually want him?
Posey isn't the same player he was back in '07. He really only is taking three pointers...
From ESPN LA... looks like the Lakers needed to find another impact player since Chris Paul got traded to the Clippers and Dwight Howard is off the trade market for the time being (sarcasm).
