Lakers Acquire Kapono

In Free Agency on December 9, 2011 at 5:32 pm

Adrian Wojnarowski reports

Forward Jason Kapono intends to sign a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum after the NBA’s free-agent moratorium is lifted on Friday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Kapono, a 30-year-old UCLA graduate, visited the Lakers on Monday.

Nice signing for LA.

Jason Kapono is a very limited player but he is a nice situational sub to be able to call upon at the end of your bench by virtue of his shooting ability.

He’ll also be a valuable shooter in LA when playing alongside an elite scoring wing in Kobe Bryant and two low post scorers in Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. His shooting ability will help keep defenses honest and will therefore create good spacing.
