Mandatory Credit:  Greg Smith-USA TODAY SportsIn the wake of Metta World Peace being amnestied, the Lakers are still looking to fill up roster spots.

Their latest acquisition is Wesley Johnson, a small forward who signed a one-year agreement.  

Johnson is a three-year NBA vet who was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves, then spent the last year playing for the Phoenix Suns.

He had a decent season last year, averaging 8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 19.1 minutes.

It sounds like a solid signing to fill a roster spot, and everyone knows that Coach Mike D’Antoni only rotates 8-9 guys anyway.
