Lakers.com: The Los Angeles Lakers have signed Sun Yue to a multi-year contract, it was announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.

Originally selected by the Lakers in the second round (40th overall) of 2007 NBA draft, the 6-9 guard started for the Chinese National Team this past month in the men’s basketball tournament at the Beijing Olympics. In six games, Sun averaged 6.8 points, 1.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.33 steals in 28.0 minutes.

Playing for the Beijing Aoshen Olympians of the American Basketball Association for the past three seasons, Sun, 23, was named First Team All-ABA in both 2007 and 2008 while earning Second-Team All-ABA honors in 2006.

Posting a 12-point, 14-rebound, 12-assist, 8-block, 4-steal triple-double against the L.A. Aftershock during his rookie season in the ABA (2005-06), Sun averaged 13.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 10.5 assists in 2006-07 when the team played its home games at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA before moving to Singapore for the 2007-08 season.

Update: According to HOOPSWORLD.COM

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.)

    Oh snap, here we go a worthwhile combo guard that can also play the 3!

  • Michael_23

    Usually the Chinese players NBA have been receiving is at least 7 ft tall. Sun Yue is gonna be a player that versatile and can run the floor as much as LO at the guard spot. This will be interesting …

    Sun Yueeeee is *Magic* reincarnate :cool:

    Never gonna happen, Vladrad and Luke will never be apart of the same trade ever, and no one will take a salary like theirs for below mediocre play

    probably lol! they dont want their contracts. 5 year and a 3 year. and why would they want luke who had horrible season and coby karl who lol wasnt even drafted.

  • ignard

    NOW i’m starting to understand why some of you get excited when the Lakers sign players like MBenga and Ira Newble. Thank GOD none of you are general managers.

  • dub824

    YUUUEEEE… crank that soulja boy?

    Good luck Sun & GO LAKERS!!

    PS: I like this trade better than the others:

  • lyk13

    Finally it’s inked…:D

  • Lakers24-7-365

    if the rumor is true, lamar will be shipped out tomorrow

    its most likely fake

  • Zen Master

    Those trades are possible, but barely. When coming up with trade ideas, also think if the other teams would want the Lakers’ crap. If they are dumb like Minnesota and Seattle, then they would give up their good players for a team that is trying to rip them off. Yeah, just like they Celtics ripped them off.

    I know this sounds impossible, but don’t you all wish that the Heat would just give Marion for Mihm, Vlad, and Luke? After all you guys don’t like them anyway.

  • David

    Speaking of trades. Rumor has it on Tuesday Lamar Odom will be traded. Most likely candidate is Tayshaun Prince from what I hear. Hopefully it’s true.

  • jonathan

    lakers should offer walton or radman for free, I think clips have some cap space left, walton & cash for their second round pick.

  • Smush Walton

    I hope Sun gets decent playing time. Clearly he brings a lot more athleticism than that joke Walton. For this team to improve we need Luke to assume the Ira Newble role on the bench next season. Hopefully Sun will bring some quality minutes.

  • GT

    as much as I like the lakers, this guy is going to be a bust. A great player in China = a shrimp in NBA, just like Yi

  • KING BQ

    OOOH MY GOOOOD!!!!!! KOBE & SUN YUE

    NIIIIIIICE!!!!!

  • T-Dub

    WHY DO YOU GUYS GET SOO EXCITED OVER PLAYERS WHO HAVEN’T DONE OR SHOWN ANYTHING ON THE NBA LEVEL? IF WE WERE GONNA STAY WITH ODOM, OUR ONLY TRADE ASSET, WE SHOULD HAVE SIGNED A PROVEN NBA VET WITH THE MLE. I WOULD LOOK FOR ANYTHING OUT OF THESE YOUNG GUYS IF I WERE YOU.

    Lol. I hope that Tayshaun thing is true. This guy seems pretty unique, I’d love to see what he’s got, been keepin an eye on him since Lakers drafted him.

  • DCLAKER

    Zen Master,The ONLY players I would trade LO for is MARION,RJ!

    pio2U…I got blasted on another site for makin’ a thread about getting J.Critt. and Rudy Gay,I understand why they did but next few days they started rumors sayin’ LA was in talks again with Memphis…dumb$$$.Though I wish we could get…

  • tradekwame11

    this probably isnt the best move we could make maybe they throw in a pick or something but it would give sun a spot on the roster.

    according to topbuzz and clublakers, today is the day lamar odom will be traded. what happened???

    [Comment ID #49471 Will Be Quoted Here]

    I love this trade, but you might have to give up a first rounder to make this trade happen, probly 2010.
    Then I see this trade as a possibility:

    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=3251~2027~45&teams=19~19~13&te=&cash=
    Plus give the Magic a first rounder 2009.

    This is a clip to prove it. SLAM DUNK BABY!!!!!!!! :)

  • yomi

    those are some sick numbers!!! I hope he can average at least half of each category in the NBA. Cuz he wont be a starter or playing that many munites…. So a 6pt 6ast 3blk and 3stl season avg sounds gr8 to me.

  • http://lakers.cmo SUN_yue

    HEKAAAAA YEAAAAAA!!!!!!!im so glad we sign him….i bet he is gonna win the 6th man award..his game style is like Ginobli

  • DCLAKER

    I’m tired of watching highlights on YOUTUBE OF SUUUUUUUUUN YUUUUUUUUUUUE (His name is pronounced SOON YUE,as in…’SOON’ THERE WILL BE ANOTHER BANNER TO HANG),WE WANT RUMORS! WE WANT RUMORS! WE WANT…damn,this firm has FINE $$$ WOMEN IN HERE,yep WE WANT THEM TOO!!

  • jonathan

    lakers should do like what team USA did on D, CP3, Dwill, and kidd – full court pressure. Lakers should use farmar like USA used CP3, Sun like USA used williams, and fish like team usa used kidd, with the exception that more minutes go to farm & fish.

  • DCLAKER

    What if I was gm…hmmm,SUN YUE is signed…hmmm,Sasha,check…hmmm…RONNY WOULD BE HERE,check…but Vlad,Luke…probably LO (I’ll take the blame for giving Luke that contract,not Vlad,he signed for 2 yrs.,this yr.and the year before,bye-bye).

    LO because RJ and Marion are availible and those 2 move without the ball better and can create their own shots,meaning SOMEONE’S GOIN’ TO BE “POSTERIZED”!!

  • DCLAKER
  • yellowpurplefever

    GT,

    Sun is a 2nd rounder, so don’t expect the hype of Yi. So Yao is a shrimp? Shut up with your negative energy on this site. Go to NJ site and vent. peace

  • basketbolista

    let’s wait until he play in the NBA..
    thats the time we can see if he is good to play in NBA..

  • LakersFirst

    [Comment ID #49524 Will Be Quoted Here]

    If you were GM, we would have had Keyon Dooling (YES KEYON DOOLING)and Mikael Pietrus – LOL, LOL. I thank God everyday you are not GM.

  • DCLAKER

    Like warm blood in the desert…The Buzzards come to feast.

    Lakerfirst,you should PRAY for me to be GM,’cause even though you may know about salary caps and all that numbers crap,YOU DON’T KNOW PLAYERS!Whenever I request for this player and that player,they ALWAYS seem to get picked up,example…the names you picked that I requested(Dooling and Pietrus)just for starters.

    See this is fun to me,while this is “How can I prove that I’m better than everyone else,SO MUCH BETTER…I’ma HATER”!

    I got a question,very simple if Milwaukee GM called and said ‘WE WANT LO,you take RJ and as a bonus TAKE VILLANUEVA FOR VLAD” what would you do?

  • DCLAKER

    Hey Laker1st,all season long I’ll be talkin’ ’bout this guy….

  • LakersNo1

    Let see if PJ will play Sun during crutch time and not garbage mins like coby. Most rookies are bench warmers for the first yr for PJ. He hates to use them. Will Sun shine? let see….

  • laker4lyf

    it would be a very tall line-up if in some part of the game this will be our line-up:

    C: BYNUM
    PF: GASOL
    SF: ODOM
    SG: BRYANT
    PG: SUN YUE

    I think it’s possible coz even if they are tall but they are also quick.

    dont be stupid, first of all magic is not dead and we havent even seen how Sun will play in the NBA
