Lakers Sign Sterling Brown To 10-Day Contract

12:56pm: The Lakers have officially signed Brown to a 10-day contract, according to the team.

The first recipient of a 10-day deal in 2023, Brown will be eligible for the team’s next five games — his contract will expire after the Lakers play Philadelphia next Sunday (January 15).

11:26am: The Lakers are “progressing toward” signing free agent wing Sterling Brown to a 10-day contract, tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Brown, 27, is playing with the Raptors 905 after being waived by the Thunder before the start of the season. He has appeared in six games for the G League team.

Brown spent last season with the Mavericks, averaging 3.3 points and 3.0 rebounds per night while seeing limited playing time in 49 games. During the offseason, he was sent to the Rockets as part of the Christian Wood trade and was later shipped to Oklahoma City in an eight-player deal.

The Lakers currently have a roster opening, so no corresponding move would have to be made before signing Brown.
