Lakers Sign Jonathan Holmes

THURSDAY, 12:27pm: The deal is official, the Lakers announced. The team refers to it as a multiyear pact, so that means it covers two years, since the Lakers don’t have the capacity to give out a longer contract.

SATURDAY, 2:09pm: The Lakers have reached a contract agreement with undrafted forward Jonathan Holmes, Shams Charania of RealGM reports (Twitter link). The length and terms of the deal are not yet known, but Charania indicates that it includes a significant amount that will be partially guaranteed.

The addition of Holmes will increase the Lakers’ roster count to 15 players, including 12 fully-guaranteed pacts. The forward out of Texas will compete for a roster spot and frontcourt minutes. But it’s also entirely possible that Los Angeles has designs on sending Holmes to its D-League affiliate to gain seasoning for a large chunk of the 2015/16 campaign, though that is merely my speculation.

In 32 appearances for the Longhorns last season, Holmes logged averages of 10.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 26.1 minutes per contest. His shooting line was .389/.331/.778. His career NCAA numbers are 9.2 PPG, 5.9 RPG, and 0.7 APG.

    We will see if he can pull his career back together after wonderland!


    Lakers have salary cap & trade pieces to sign a disgruntled Markieff Morris who want out of Phoenix?
    Would be a great pick up for Lakers

    • Eddie Scarito

      That depends on if Morris’ issue is with Suns organization, or if he’s really just mentally incapable of playing without his twin on same team. If the issue is missing Marcus, then Lakers don’t need the headache.

    Ummm who?

    • Maurice White

      Good Signing! I wonder what this means about Robert Upshaw? Will the Lakers still be interested in signing the undrafted Center?

      • Quincy

        We already signed Upshaw

        • Michael

          They didnt sign Upshaw yet…

        • Eddie Scarito

          That deal still hasn’t been made official yet.

      • George

        Mitch and Jim must want to get fired. Another PF?

        • Broderick johnson

          This is a combo forward he can really shoot and create.

    I don’t understand something about contracts and roster spots. If a player does not make the big club and one of the 15 spots, like Robert Upshaw, can the Lakers “stash” him on their D-league team w/o another team stealing him? Can they sent him down for an entire season…for seasoning?
