The Lakers made the signing of Stanley Johnson official moments ago.
Johnson’s been highly impactful in the 14 games he played across three 10-day deals, and now ranks 2nd on the team in net rating (5.0) behind only Austin Reaves (9.1). – 12:13 PM

Can confirm the reports: Lakers are poised to sign Stanley Johnson to a one year deal with a team option for 2022-23. The former Mater Dei and Arizona star has found a foothold as a defensive wing for his hometown franchise on three different 10-day deals. – 12:59 PM

Per @Adrian Wojnarowski, Stanley Johnson’s deal is a team option for year two, which essentially makes this a guaranteed make-good opportunity. Works well for both sides. Cool to see a dude bust his ass and get another shot. AK – 12:55 PM
