The Lakers and point guard Sun Yue have agreed to terms on a two-season contract, the team confirmed Thursday. The Lakers hope to sign Sun formally within the next few days, team spokesman John Black said.

"Hopefully, it will get done soon," Black said.

Sun, known as the Chinese Magic Johnson because of his eye-catching playmaking ability, will face his future teammate Kobe Bryant when China plays the United States on Sunday in the Olympic Games opener in Beijing.

The Lakers drafted the 6-foot-9, 212-pound Sun in the second round in 2007. He spent last season with Aoshen, his Beijing club team, and also played with the Chinese National team in preparation for the Olympics.

In addition, he played with China in the Las Vegas Summer League in 2007.

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said in June that he would make it a priority to sign Sun and bring him to training camp.

Sun's signing gives the Lakers increased depth in the backcourt heading into camp. He will compete with starting point guard Derek Fisher and backup Jordan Farmar for playing time. He also can play shooting guard.

The Lakers have yet to re-sign free agent guard Coby Karl. They also haven't signed Joe Crawford, a guard from Kentucky who was their lone draft pick in June. Last week they did sign guard Dwayne Mitchell, a free agent from Louisiana-Lafayette.

What's more, Kupchak said last month that he would wait a while before deciding

whether to give an $80-million, five-season contract extension to center Andrew Bynum. Kupchak would like to see how Bynum responds to his offseason workouts.

Bynum suffered a season-ended left kneecap injury Jan. 13. He underwent surgery in June and is on pace for a full recovery in time for training camp in October.

“I’d go. I’d probably go,” said Bryant, during a USA Basketball press conference on Friday morning. “Like Milan or something like that, where I grew up or something like that… Peace out.”

Bryant continued: “Do you know any reasonable person that would turn down 50 (million dollars)?”

It sucks to hear stuff like this. It's true that nobody would truly turn down that kind of money, but he should have at least said something about his appreciation for the league and the Lakers.

"Peace out" kind of pisses me off.

He's not going anywhere before the end of October.
The last thing they'd want is for him to have horrible training camp and preseason, after signing him to the max.

mitch learned his lesson, i dont care how bynum looked before his injury, its about NOW and if he plays like crap, cant defend or do anything worthwhile, then he doesnt get max.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

BINGO!

Time for Bynum to show us how bad he wants it. How hard is he willing to work to get his worth?
Hes gotta play like and act like, "Im the baddest big man and no one is gonna stop me" attitude.
Cant wait to see him face greg oden.

he'll be ready to go. i dont see him as a guy who plays for a contract then does diddly squat. hes doing the same routine as last summer and we all saw how that turned out. well on his way to becoming MIP. hes going to be the most important player for us next season.

why are we wasting up roster space for unproven talent...use his spot for a proven vet. we saw what the celtics bench did with all their vets.

thats kinda scary. we all saw how IMPROVED bynum got. seeing him get any better which he will, is just . . . . damn right frightening.

The fact that he's 6'9 and playing a PG already convinced me that if he can breakout, he wun lose out to Yao and Yi in popularity....

I had fear that when Kobe is a free agent he will leave possibly to another team. But now this, damn this might get ugly hold on to your seat & strap on your seat belt 2009 free agent market is gonna be one hell of a summer.
