Re-signing Horton-Tucker is just the latest for the Lakers, who have been busy this offseason.
In 65 games last season, Horton-Tucker averaged 9.0 points, 2.8 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per night. He made four starts and was a useful piece as the team dealt with various injuries throughout the year.
Now he’ll remain in place a bit longer with Los Angeles’ championship window still open.
Had he chosen not to re-sign with L.A., Horton-Tucker would have been a restricted free agent, allowing the Lakers to match any offer presented to the guard.
