Report: NBA Transactions To Begin Friday Afternoon, Jason Kapono To Sign With Lakers

Thursday December 8th, 2011

The Los Angeles Lakers will be adding veteran three-point shooter Jason Kapono as soon as player signings are allowed by the league, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports -- and, also according to Wojnarowski, that will happen at 2:00 E.T. on Friday. Kapono played in just 24 games last season, and only 57 in 2009-10, and his 3-point percentage dipped precipitously in both of those campaigns.  In fact, Kapono took just 8 3-pointers in 2010-11 and made just 1. Despite the recent downturn, his career 3-point shooting average is 43.7%, and he could potentially fill a need in Los Angeles.
