Reports: Lakers sign Dion Waiters for remainder of season
Scoring guard was released by Memphis on Feb. 9
From NBA Twitter reports
The Lakers recently waived Troy Daniels to clear a roster spot for the stretch run, and they’ve reportedly settled on their man: free agent guard Dion Waiters.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Lakers have signed Waiters for the remainder of the season.
Sources: Waiters, his agent Rich Paul and the Lakers had several conversations, they have been positive, and it's been made clear among all: This must work out for him — otherwise, Lakers reserve the option to release him. https://t.co/rGL3xlxFvo

The 8th-year guard has played only three games for Miami this season, and has struggled with injury the three years prior, playing in a total of 120 games, though he averaged double-figures in scoring each year.
