The Lakers have had an outstanding offseason so far – signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, drafting four players, and trading for Brook Lopez. The most recent signing, Briante Weber, was first reported by Shams Charania of The Vertical.
Free agent guard Briante Weber has agreed on a partially guaranteed deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources tell The Vertical.

Weber spent four years at VCU, before going undrafted in 2015. He then spent the past 2 seasons in the D-League, and short stints with the Grizzlies, Heat, Warriors, and Hornets. Weber never got much playing time, and has career averages of 3.4 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists. Weber did play extremely well in the D-League last year for the Sioux Falls Skyforce, averaging 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 7.3 assists in 31 games.
While the terms of the contract have not been released yet, it is expected that Weber’s contract is partially guaranteed, and he’ll have to go against Tyler Ennis and Vander Blue in training camp to compete for a regular season roster spot.
