    Lakers, Taurean Prince agree to 1-year deal to kick off free agency
    • June 30, 2023

    The Lakers agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free agent forward Taurean Prince, a source confirmed to the Southern California News Group.

    ESPN reported, citing Prince’s agents at Creative Artists Agency, that the 29-year-old forward and the Lakers agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million deal not long after the free agency negotiating window officially opened on Friday at 3 p.m. PT.

    Prince, who played for the Atlanta Hawks as a rookie when Lakers head coach Darvin Ham was an assistant on that coaching staff, can’t officially sign the contract until 9:01 p.m. PT on July 5, after the free agency moratorium period ends.

    The Lakers did lose free agent forward Troy Brown, who reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
