The Lakers announced Friday that they signed second-round draft pick Derrick Caracter.

Caracter, a 6-foot-8 power forward, signed a two-year contract worth about $1.1 million in which just the first year at $473,604 is guaranteed.

Caracter played one season at the University of Texas El Paso before the Lakers selected him with the 58th overall pick in the second round.

Caracter averaged 15.4 points and 8.6 rebounds for the Lakers on their summer league team in Las Vegas.
