The Los Angeles Lakers have signed former Memphis Grizzlies forward Ed Davis. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports broke the news:

Wojnarowski reported that the deal is for two years and is worth $2 million, with Davis having a player option for the second season:

The 24-year-old power forward is averaging 6.9 points and 5.9 rebounds on 54.2% shooting for his career so far. Davis' 6-foot-10 presence and midrange jump shot can help the Lakers inside in light of Pau Gasol's recent departure to Chicago. Most importantly, he can offer rim protection to a Lakers frontcourt that currently offers little defense.
