Darren Collison and Stanley Johnson have officially signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, the team announced on Friday.

Both players are under 10-day contracts and the Lakers have added them to the roster as replacement players. The 17-time NBA champions have several players unavailable, due to the Health and Safety protocols.

Darren Collison returns to the NBA after his retirement in 2019. For his part, Stanley Johnson signed with the Chicago Bulls in early December, but never played for the team, due to Chicago games being postponed. Both players will be in the Lakers lineup for the Christmas Day showdown against the Brooklyn Nets.
