The Los Angeles Lakers finally inked Chinese point guard Sun Yue to a contract this week.
Sun is getting the standard minimum two-year contract for a second-round draft pick; however his entire contract is fully guaranteed ($1.2 million - ~$442k and ~$736k). He was chosen by the Lakers with the 40th pick in the 2007 NBA Draft.
(A quick note - it's proper to refer to Sun Yue as Sun - as it's correct to use Yao for Yao Ming.)
The Lakers also signed second-round pick Joe Crawford (58th) on Wednesday. While Crawford will need to beat out guards Coby Karl and Dwayne Mitchell on make good contracts - Sun is a lock to make the roster.
Additionally forward Josh Powell signed a two-year deal with the team, also at the minimum ($1.8 million in total). Full details have yet to leak out but Powell is either non-guaranteed - or has partial guarantees. In other words, he's going to have to earn his contract.
