Meeks signs with Lakers

(The Phanatic Magazine) -  Former Sixers guard Jodie Meeks has signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Meeks, a three-year NBA veteran, appeared in 66 games (50 starts) last season with the 76ers, averaging 8.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 24.9 minutes per game.

An early entry candidate out of Kentucky in the 2009 NBA Draft, Meeks was originally selected by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round (41st overall pick) of the 2009 NBA Draft. The 6-foot-4 guard, who played three seasons with the Wildcats, led the SEC in scoring (23.7 ppg) and was named a unanimous selection to the All-SEC First team during his junior season.

Meeks holds career averages of 8.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 200 career games (114 starts).
