The Los Angeles Lakers have signed guard Joe Crawford, it was announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.

Selected by the Lakers with the 58th pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, Crawford, a 22 year-old native of Detroit, Michigan, played four seasons at the University of Kentucky, averaging 11.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 127 games (76 starts).

As a senior, Crawford ranked fourth in the SEC in scoring with a team-high 17.9 points per game, scoring 20-plus points 13 times while topping 30 points on three occasions.

Earning Second Team All-SEC honors from league coaches as a senior, Crawford finished his collegiate career as Kentucky’s 19th all-time leading scorer with 1,438 points while ranking seventh all-time in three-point field goals made (186).

Additionally, the 6’5” Crawford started all six games for the Lakers Summer League entry in Las Vegas this past July, averaging 11.3 points including .455 (5-of-11) shooting from behind the arc, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 32.7 minutes.

So if I'm not mistaken:

C - Bynum / Mihm / (Mbenga - if he chooses L.A. over Miami)
PF - Gasol / Powell / Radmanovic
SF - Odom / Ariza / Walton
SG - Bryant / Vujacic / Yue
PG - Fisher / Farmar / Crawford

Versatility, athleticism, experience at all levels of playoffs, vets, youth and mid-level players. Hopefully Radmanovic decides to wake up a play with some passion to give the Lakers another outside threat. Of everything this team has I would still like to see one more shooter to pull out defenses from the middle. Watching other teams scramble to cover will be fun and should ease up a ton of the court for Kobe.

Adding Bynum and Ariza to a team that already made the Finals doesn't suck either.

I'm cool with this team - let's roll!
