Jodie Meeks will return to the Lakers next season.
Last summer, Meeks signed a two-year deal worth $3.05 million. The second season, at $1.55 million, became guaranteed on Wednesday when the Lakers exercised their team option.
"Jodie is not only a gifted three-point shooter who helps us space the floor on the offensive end, but he is also a very active and underrated player defensively who continues to work on and improve all aspects of his game,” said General Manager Kupchak. “He was an important member of our team last year and we look forward to having him back for the 2013-14 season."
After a slow start, Meeks was able to contribute under Coach Mike D'Antoni until a high-ankle sprain knocked him out of the team's first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs.
