Jason Kapono doesn't figure he will be a Lakers starter for long. Noting Kobe Bryant's history of playing through injuries, Kapono said he expected the star shooting guard to be in the Lakers' lineup as usual on Christmas in their opener against Chicago. "I think you'd be a fool to not think that," Kapono said Wednesday before filling in for Bryant, who sat out the Lakers' final exhibition game against the Clippers at Staples Center because of a torn ligament in his right wrist.

NBA teams can't sign free agents until Friday, but the Lakers met with Kapono and were close to a deal for one or two years and about $1.3 million annually. The Lakers would sign Kapono for a minimum veteran's salary and wouldn't have to dip into their main free-agent tool -- a three-year, $9.4-million contract known as the mini mid-level exception. Kapono, who turns 31 in February, has career averages of 6.9 points and 43.7% from three-point range but averaged a career-low 0.7 points and 4.6 minutes last season with Philadelphia.

"Jason has interest from several teams and we are in the process of trying to figure out the best situation for him," Lawrence said. ESPN.com
