The Lakers signed Brandon Heath
The LA Lakers signed free agent combo guard Brandon Heath(1.90-G) who played last season for Orleans in the ProA league in France. The deal was announced by the Lakers official site.
Brandon Heath played for 4 seasons in San Diego State in the NCAA where he graduated in 2006-2007 with impressive figures of almost 20 points per game. Most recently, Heath played for the Los Angeles Clippers 2008 Summer-Pro League team in Las Vegas, averaging 5.6 points and 1.0 rebounds in five games played and it seems that it was enough to get him a contract in the magic world of the NBA.
Last season he averaged 12 points 2.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 25 games in the ProA. Heath is a very athletic guard that can do many things in the court apart from scoring.
