On Tuesday, the Lakers announced the signing of undrafted Florida guard Michael Frazier.

Last week, The Times reported that Frazier would join the Lakers on a two-year, $1.4-million contract.

Frazier will still have to fight his way through training camp, as only $50,000 of his rookie salary ($525,093) is guaranteed.

The 6-foot-5 Frazier averaged 12.1 points and 1.4 assists a game with the Gators, shooting 48.2% from the field and 38% from three-point range.

The Lakers are expected to bring 17 to 20 players to training camp, but the regular-season roster limit is 15.

Frazier is the team's 16th player.  The team also recently signed Texas forward Jonathan Holmes to a similar contract, but with a $100,000 guarantee.

Second-year players Jabari Brown and Tarik Black have non-guaranteed contracts for the upcoming season at $845,059 apiece.

The Lakers have also had casual conversations with veteran forward Metta World Peace about re-joining the team.

If Frazier is unable to make the cut with the Lakers, he could become an affiliate player in the NBA Development League with the D-Fenders.
