The Los Angeles Lakers have made their fourth free agent signing on Sunday, along with re-signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. After adding LeBron James and Lance Stephenson, the team has signed center JaVale McGee.

He has signed a one-year deal with the team. He has signed for the veteran’s minimum, which is a bargain price for a rim-protector.

McGee has spent the past two season with the Golden State Warriors. He won back-to-back Championships with the Warriors, as they defeated his new teammate, James, in the NBA Finals when he played for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This is a double get for the Lakers, as they also take him away from the Warriors. He played sporadically during the Warriors playoffs, but did play in all four games against the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, as they swept The King.

During the NBA Finals, McGee had 32 points against the Cavaliers in the four-game Finals. In Game 2, he had a season-high 12 points.

The 30-year-old McGee will be joining his sixth NBA team in his career. Besides playing for the Warriors, he has also played for the Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets, Dallas Mavericks, and the Philadelphia 76ers.

This past season, he averaged 4.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.9 blocks per game in 65 contests.

McGee played in his most games with the Warriors per season, as he had 77 and 65 this past season, since the 2012-13 season when he appeared in 79 games with the Nuggets.
