Meeks is heading into his second season with the franchise. He averaged 7.9 points a game last year in 78 appearances, shooting 38.7% from the field and 35.7% from three.
This off-season, the Lakers exercised their team option to keep Meeks for another season at $1.55 million.
Thanks for all the Bday love! Appreciate y'all!!!

Meeks finished the season with a high ankle sprain that knocked him out of the Lakers' first-round matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.
