Per Shams Charania, 3-and-D wing and former Milwaukee Buck Wesley Matthews will join the reigning champions. The 34-year-old forward is sure to fill into a similar role to that of Danny Green last year.
What does signing Wesley Matthews mean for the Lakers?
As mentioned, the Lakers have a shortage of wings as a result of Danny Green being traded to OKC. Wesley Matthews provides a reliable experienced veteran presence that also fills their system needs.
Coming off a memorable and unconventional championship run, Los Angeles has already made some nice roster moves. They traded for electric scorer Dennis Schroder, who will most likely help Lebron run the point. Assuming they hold on to Anthony Davis, the Lakers should continue to be title favorites with an improved roster from last year.
