Orlando Magic reserve Matt Barnes has ended his free agency roller coaster ride as he has decided to sign a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The terms of the deal are undisclosed but Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the contract is for two years and is worth $3.6 million.
Barnes provides more depth at the small forward position as he should be backing up Ron Artest and Lamar Odom. He can produce when called upon, evidenced by his 6.4 PPG and 4.7 RPG during the 2010 NBA Playoffs.
He will make a good role player for the Lakers as he has the potential to be a decent replacement for Shannon Brown, assuming Brown decides to leave this offseason.
This was definitely a good acquisition by Los Angeles as Barnes could provide a spark to possibly help the Lakers win the NBA Finals a third straight season.
