Lakers Sign Xavier Henry

Another day, another signing for the Lakers.  This time in the form of shooting guard Xavier Henry:

Henry, the 12th overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft by the Memphis Grizzlies, played the last two seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans.  He has played limited minutes, averaging 14 minutes a game during three seasons.

The 6’6 shooting guard adds more depth to what is an already crowded backcourt.   Henry has averaged 3.9 PPG in his brief NBA career which hasn’t exactly lived up to expectations coming out of the University of Kansas.  He was ranked a top ten high school prospect by multiple recruiting services but was one and done in college before jumping to the NBA.

The terms of the deal were not announced.
