Free-agent guard Dion Waiters is finalizing a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, sources told ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
The Lakers worked out Waiters earlier this week, after clearing a roster spot by waiving guard Troy Daniels on Sunday.
Waiters played only three games this season for the Miami Heat — the last on Jan. 28 — because of suspensions and poor conditioning. He has shown himself to be a talented scorer and playmaker in past seasons with the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Lakers have been interested in acquiring another scoring playmaker for their second unit.
Waiters, 28, has averaged 13.2 points per game in his career.
