Free agent Ben McLemore has agreed to a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Shams Charania.

McLemore’s contract with the Lakers is for the remainder of the season, Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul told Charania.

With the signing of McLemore, the Lakers now have a full 15-man roster.

McLemore gives the Lakers additional three-point shooting and wing depth as they try to compete for another title.

The 28-year-old was waived by the Houston Rockets on April 3 and it was recently reported that multiple contending teams, including the Milwaukee Bucks, were interested in acquiring McLemore after his release.

He averaged 7.4 points and 2.1 rebounds per game in 32 games with the Rockets this season.
