Beasley was one of the best unrestricted free agents remaining on the market. As a member of the New York Knicks last season, the 29-year-old started in 30 games and averaged 13.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per contest. He isn't a high-volume 3-point shooter, but Beasley has established himself as a solid scorer in isolation and in the post who can make an impact off the bench.

Beasley joins a new-look Lakers team that has added LeBron James, Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo and JaVale McGee to its roster this offseason.
