It’s now been confirmed. The former Clipper and high energy player is a great replacement for Turiaf in my opinion. How do you guys feel about the newest Laker?
O.C. Register: Lakers spokesman John Black just confirmed that journeyman forward Josh Powell has been signed by the Lakers.
The 6-foot-9 Powell spent the 2007-2008 season with the Clippers, primarily as a backup forward. However, he started extensively late in the season, when starting center Chris Kaman missed 17 of the final 21 games due to an ankle injury.
