Today, the Los Angeles Lakers announced they have signed small-ball big man Stanley Johnson to a 10-day contract.

The Lakers head coach Frank Vogel says the team is “excited” to have Johnson but that he’s “obviously not going to commit to any lineups” moving forward.

Vogel says Johnson has given them a necessary dose of toughness and defense.

The 25-year-old has averaged 6.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.0 steal in 25.2 minutes through five games (three starts) with Los Angeles this season.
