LOS ANGELES (AP) A person with knowledge of the details tells The Associated Press that guard Jordan Clarkson has agreed to a four-year, $50 million deal to return to the Los Angeles Lakers.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday morning because the deal hasn't been signed.

Clarkson is a rising star after two seasons with the Lakers, who acquired the 46th overall pick from Washington on draft night in 2014. The Missouri product has been a steady scorer and a rare bright spot on the two worst teams in Lakers history.

After averaging 11.9 points per game and making the NBA's All-Rookie team in the 2014-15 season, he boosted his production to 15.5 points last season, second-most on the team behind Kobe Bryant.

Yahoo Sports first reported the deal.
