Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — The Los Angeles Lakers busy offseason continued Monday. 

The Lakers signed guard Jodie Meeks to a two-year contract that is worth $1.4 million the first year and could be worth as much as $2 million the second year based on incentives according to his agent David Bauman. 

The Lakers also signed forward Devin Ebanks to a one-year deal worth $1,085,000, according to Bauman, who is Ebanks agent too.
