NBA News: Matt Barnes Signs With Los Angeles Lakers

He’s getting a lot less than he would have got if the Raptors would have been able to sign him like they wanted to.

Barnes and the Lakers agreed to a 2-year $3.6 million deal and Barnes announced the deal on Twitter.

Last week Barnes announced that he was signing a 2-year $9 million deal with the Toronto Raptors, but problems with the sign-and-trade rules prevented the Raptors from being able to make the offer.

Barnes will be joining his eighth NBA team. He has averaged 7.3 points, with a career high of 10.2 for Phoenix during the 2008-09 season.
