Jodie Meeks was brought in by the Lakers to be a knock-it-down, spot-up shooter. When he was on, he opened up the floor for a team desperate for outside shooting.
Unfortunately, Meeks was inconsistent with his jumper.
Through 78 appearances, Meeks averaged 7.9 points a game on 38.7% shooting from the field. He hit 35.7% from three-point range but was one of the team's best free-throw shooters at 89.6%.
Teams would try to force Meeks to put the ball on the floor, where he was vulnerable to miscues like turnovers or rushed shots.
Defensively, Meeks was a contributor with his energy. In transition, an area of weakness for the team, Meeks was one of the few Lakers who could changes ends of the floor with speed.
