    "The former Duke standout". Oh, mercy. Well, he certainly "stood out".

    With Hansbrough's improved play last year, Indiana had no reason to keep McRoberts. Funny that... View More

    Which Duke fans do you know? The ones that love it when UNC fans falsely claim Duke doesn't produce NBA players?

    Not true. Sean May would've signed for a dozen Big Macs, but McBob at $6M was a better value.

    The signing is a far cry from the "big deal" that Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said the team is pursuing

    With Hansbrough's improved play last year, Indiana had no reason to keep McRoberts. Funny that this excites you when the most excited Duke fans I know have ever been about McRoberts was when he decided to leave Durham.

    In other words, the Lakers had no one, and McRoberts was the cheapest big body they could quickly sign.

    The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to terms with free agent forward Josh McRoberts, according to a league source.

    McRoberts will sign a two-year deal worth approximately $6 million, according to the source.

    McRoberts, 24, averaged 7.4 points and 5.3 rebounds in 22.2 minutes per game while shooting 54.7 percent from the floor for Indiana last season. He has career averages of 5.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 15.7 minutes per game while shooting 52.5 percent in four seasons with Indiana and Portland.

    The signing is a far cry from the "big deal" that Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said the team is pursuing, but it does address the need for frontcourt depth that became apparent when L.A. traded Lamar Odom to Dallas and opted against re-signing free agent big men Theo Ratliff and Joe Smith.

    The Lakers' frontcourt void became even wider when second-year big man Derrick Caracter suffered a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee at Monday's practice. At 6-foot-10, 240 pounds, McRoberts can play both the power forward and the center position.

    The Lakers made use of their mini mid-level exception to sign McRoberts, a former Duke standout. A new provision in the recently ratified collective bargaining agreement, the mini mid-level is worth approximately $3.1 million a season (or $9.4 million over three years). It is the only contract available for NBA teams that have crossed the luxury tax threshold to offer to free agents, other than signing them to a veteran's minimum salary.
