Los Angeles Lakers have found their 3-and-D guy in Ben McLemore, who is signing a contract with the purple and gold for the remainder of the season. McLemore last played with the Houston Rockets, who waived him in recent days.

The player was linked with a series of teams, including the Lakers, who finally got his signing. The shooting guard will give that extra the Lakers need for the rest of the regular season. Wesley Matthews hasn’t been in the best shape for the team and this guy could bring some answers to their problems.

A 7th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft, McLemore has played for the Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies and the Rockets. Now he’ll have the chance to compete with a contender, trying to help the Lakers succeed in the playoffs for the second consecutive season.
