The Los Angeles Lakers agree to a two-year deal with undrafted rookie Elias Harris, who played well for the team during the summer league in Las Vegas.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports first reported the signing on Twitter citing Harris’ agent as his source.

Harris averaged 10.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in the five games he played on the Lakers’ summer league team. He averaged 14.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 1.2 points in his final season with the Gonzaga Bulldogs last year.

The 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward will hope to make an immediate impact for a new era that begins in Los Angeles next year after the Dwight Howard fiasco is finally over with.

Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles mentions that the Lakers now have 12 players signed, with second-round pick Ryan Kelly from the Duke Blue Devils “expected to up that number to 13.”
