Unrestricted free agent Tarik Black agreed to a two-year, $12.85 million deal with the Lakers on Sunday.
Black will effectively be the backup center behind Timofey Mozgov but even that we’re unsure about. Rookie first round draft pick Ivica Zubak played just 13.0 mpg in five Adriatic League games last year and Larry Nance is equally unfit to defend true centers. Still, this is a nice value play from the Lakers now that they’ve blown everybody away with the Timofey Mozgov deal.
