(Jodie) Meeks agreed to join the Lakers with a two-year deal, worth $3 million, which became official Monday when he signed the contract.
“I felt like this was the best situation,” Meeks said Monday in a phone interview with The Times. “To have a chance to play for a team like this will make me better. I’m playing with so many good people.”
“I’m looking forward to playing together with someone who will be in the Hall of Fame one day and go down as one of the best who ever played,” said Meeks, who has a team option on his second year. “I’ll take pride in hoping to help him out with his minutes. Last year, he played a lot of minutes. So if I can go in there and take some minutes off of him, it will help the team out.”
“That’s what I bring to the table,” Meeks said about his shooting. “I can do a lot more than just spot up, but I definitely can do that. That’s been my role the last few years. What I bring to the table is that and I will be very valuable to the team.”
