The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to sign free agent forward Michael Beasley to a one-year, $3.5 million deal, according to multiple reports Friday.

Beasley, 29, spent last year with the New York Knicks, averaging 13.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Those were his highest marks since the 2010-11 campaign, and he managed them in 22.3 minutes per game while appearing in 74 contests (30 starts). Beasley also shot 39.5 percent from 3-point range last season.

The second overall pick in 2008, Beasley will be joining his seventh NBA team, including two stints with the Miami Heat. During the second stint, he played the 2013-14 season with new Lakers teammate LeBron James, as the Heat went on to lose the NBA Finals to the San Antonio Spurs.

ESPN reports Beasley also drew interest from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

He joins James, JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson and Rajon Rondo as the Lakers' free agent acquisitions this summer.
