The Lakers have exercised the $1.55M team option on Jodie Meeks contract for the 2013-2014 season.

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak stated that Meeks is a “gifted three-point shooter who helps space the floor on the offensive end… and active and underrated defensively…”

Meeks played 78 games last season and averaged 7.9 points per game in 21+ minutes.
