Danny Green agreed to a two-year, $30 million deal, while free agents Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee will be returning to the Lakers on two-year deals.

KCP's deal will pay him $16 million over two years, while McGee's deal is for $8.2 million over two years.

Both Caldwell-Pope and McGee were on the 2018-19 Lakers squad on one-year deals.

Playing all 82 games of last season, Caldwell-Pope averaged 11.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.3 assists while two-time champion averaged McGee 12.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks in 75 games played.

Their two-year deals along with Danny Green's reported two-year contract coincide with LeBron James' potential free agency in 2021.
