The Lakers have signed former Gonzaga forward Elias Harris to a two-year, minimum-salary contract.
Harris, who went undrafted in June, impressed the team with his play in Las Vegas as part of the Lakers' summer league squad.
"I tried to show what I'm capable of," Harris recently told The Times. "I'm a guy who is willing to work. I'm not just a guy who is going to sit around and think everything's going to fall into my lap. That's just not me. I hope I get the opportunity and I can reward the guys with playing hard."
In five appearances, Harris averaged 10.2 points (on 44.7% overall shooting) and 5.6 rebounds a game.
He impressed new Lakers player development coach Mark Madsen.
"Elias had a great career up at Gonzaga," Madsen told The Times. "I think the word that comes to my mind with Elias is 'versatility.' At times we asked him to guard two men.
