Lakers close to a deal with Kapono

NBA teams can't sign free agents until Friday, but the Lakers met with Kapono and were close to a deal for one or two years and about $1.3 million annually.

The Lakers would sign Kapono for a minimum veteran's salary and wouldn't have to dip into their main free-agent tool -- a three-year, $9.4-million contract known as the mini mid-level exception.

Kapono, who turns 31 in February, has career averages of 6.9 points and 43.7% from three-point range but averaged a career-low 0.7 points and 4.6 minutes last season with Philadelphia.

The Lakers made a few runs at Kapono over the years and were hoping he would be cut by the 76ers late last season, in time to sign with the Lakers for the playoffs.

Lol... finally Kapono getting paid what he deserves.

This is a dream come true for Kapono, regardless of pay. Going from Philly to L.A is a no brainer, he would be stupid not to accept this deal.

He won't have to worry about Kobe going off on him for 81
