The Los Angeles Lakers are signing Wes Matthews to a one-year, $3.6 million deal, according to Shams Charania.

Matthews, 34, turned down his player option with the Milwaukee Bucks to reach free agency.

He averaged 7.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game last season.

Matthews remains a reliable three-and-D option as a veteran player.
