OFFICIAL: Lakers Sign Robert Upshaw To Multi-Year Deal

The Los Angeles Lakers have signed yet another player.

According to a press release from the team today, the Lakers have signed undrafted rookie center Robert Upshaw to a multi-year contract.

Upshaw reportedly agreed to a deal with the Lakers after playing just one game for their Las Vegas Summer League team, though there were then conflicting reports as to whether the big man would actually ink a deal.

Today, though, Upshaw finally put pen to paper and will be on the team’s roster when training camp kicks off in just a few weeks’ time.

Eric Pincus from the L.A. Times tweeted that Upshaw has been “very upfront” with the Lakers about his issues, and it seems that he completed some “off-court goals” this summer that the team set for him.

While at Washington last season, Upshaw averaged 4.5 blocks in just 24.9 minutes per game.

Upshaw’s deal with the Lakers will likely be non-guaranteed.
