Los Angeles Lakers snap up NBA veteran Matt Barnes
The London-bound Los Angeles Lakers have added veteran small forward Matt Barnes to an already impressive roster.

Matt Barnes, a free agent after a season at fellow title-contenders the Orlando Magic, signed a two-year deal with the defending NBA champions.

The 30-year-old is a tough, talented defender and also shoots fine from beyond the three-point line. He averaged 8.8 points and 5.5 rebounds per game last season in Orlando.

The former Los Angeles Clipper is the Lakers’ third signing of the summer after the team added veteran centre Theo Ratfliff and veteran point guard Steve Blake.

The LA Lakers head to London on October 4 to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at the O2 Arena as part of NBA Europe Live.
