Lakers agree to deal with rookie Derrick Caracter

The Lakers have agreed to another deal -- with their other rookie, forward Derrick Caracter.

Caracter, taken in the second round by the Lakers with the 58th overall pick, has agreed to a two-year, $1.1-million deal that probably will be partially guaranteed, a Lakers spokesman said.

Caracter, a 6-foot-9 power forward, will earn $473,604 this season if he makes the team.

Having signed second-round draft pick Devin Ebanks earlier Thursday, the Lakers now have 14 players on their roster.

Caracter averaged 14.1 points and 8.1 rebounds at Texas El Paso last season.

He also had a strong showing on the Lakers' summer league team in Las Vegas.
