Ryan Kelly's new two-year deal with the Lakers is for $1,650,000 in 2014-15 and $1,724,250 in 2015-16.

Kelly was a part-time starter for the Lakers during his rookie season, but expect him to be a bench player this season, even with the roster still in flux. He did average 8.0 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, while also averaging 22.2 minutes a game.

The Lakers officially announce the signing of forward Ryan Kelly.

There were times last season where Kelly played some really good basketball, which is what teams are looking for out of a rookie. It is hard to see him making a positive impact since the Lakers have a long jam at the power forward spot with Carlos Boozer, Jordan Hill, and Ed Davis all being signed this offseason.

Lakers officially sign Nick Young to four-year, $21.5 million deal.

The Lakers continue their string of signing a really bad player to a big money contract. The shooting guard can shoot the ball really well..at times, but literally does nothing else remotely average on the basketball court. Kobe Bryant is going to hate playing alongside Young, who has never seen a shot opportunity he doesn't like.

Lakers agreed to a deal with forward Ryan Kelly.

No details were disclosed Friday but it is assumed to be a two-year deal somewhere near the league minimum. Kelly averaged 8.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 22.2 minutes per game last season but was even more effective down the stretch when he started to see a little more playing time. He'll probably fill the same role off the bench this year that he did last, but a healthy Lakers team could shave some minutes off his playing time.

Lakers agreed to a deal with forward Wesley Johnson.  

Johnson had the best season of his four-year career, posting career-highs in points (9.1), rebounds (4.4), blocks (1.0) and steals (1.1) while averaging 28.4 minutes per game. He's still just a role player though and while he did take a step forward again, the Lakers still view him as such. A healthy Lakers team also doesn't give him the same number of minutes on the floor, so you can't expect numbers like he put up last year.

Free agent guard Xavier Henry is nearing agreement on a 1-year deal to return to the Lakers.

The Lakers just put Kendall Marshall on waivers which opens up space for the signing of Henry to the roster. Henry averaged 10.0 points and 2.7 rebounds over 21.1 minutes in 43 games for the Lakers last season.

Lakers waiving guard Kendall Marshall, but have interest in bringing him back on a new deal if he clears waivers.

Marshall finished the year as one of the leagues top assist men once he became the Lakers starting point guard. He finished the year averaging 8.8 assists but the acquisition of Jeremy Lin who is more offensively talented has made Marshall expendable to the Lakers though he would be a great backup point guard in this league.

Update: Lakers won the Carlos Boozer auction with a high bid of $3.25 million. 

The Bulls were on the hook for $16.8 million this year for Boozer, so the $3.25 million from the Lakers softens the blow a little bit. The Lakers get a 32-year-old Boozer onto their team which seems to be being built with a win-now mentality for Kobe Bryant.

Carlos Boozer has been claimed off amnesty waivers by the Lakers.

So it was the Lakers who will be clearing more room off the books for the Bulls here with their ":winning" bid for Boozer. He'll likely join the starting five in the frontcourt and be a big asset on the boards. The move to the Lakers definitely improves the fantasy value of Boozer.
