The Lakers are actively working to finish filling out their roster. As it stands, the Lakers have 11 players under contract for 2010-11 after signing Matt Barnes and Theo Ratliff late Thursday. Of course they are expected to finish deals on second-round picks Devin Ebanks and Derrick Caracter as well, meaning the roster will meet the requirement of 13.
But what about Shannon Brown? He's reportedly shopped around a bit, with his name popping up in places like Charlotte and Chicago. But it appears the Lakers will re-sign him. Kevin Ding of the Orange Country Register reports general manager Mitch Kupchak indicated Brown would be re-signed in the coming weeks.
With Jordan Farmar signing with the Nets, Brown has some pretty good value for the Lakers. He's a reliable point guard that can score and run an offense for a limited amount of time. Plus, he jumps really, really high.
