Happy Bday to @Jmeeks20 aka “get buckets!” — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) August 21, 2013
Meeks is heading into his second season with the franchise. He averaged 7.9 points a game last year in 78 appearances, shooting 38.7% from the field and 35.7% from three.
This off-season, the Lakers exercised their team option to keep Meeks for another season at $1.55 million.
Thanks for all the Bday love! Appreciate y'all!!! — Jodie Meeks (@Jmeeks20) August 21, 2013
Meeks finished the season with a high ankle sprain that knocked him out of the Lakers’ first-round matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.
The Lakers are hoping he’ll become a steadier outside threat this coming season.
All things Lakers, all the time.
