The Los Angeles Lakers signed guard Gerald Green Tuesday.

The 18th overall pick in the 2005 draft by Boston, Green has not played in the NBA since 2009, spending last season playing in China.

In 181 career games -- 41 starts -- with Boston, Minnesota, Houston and Dallas, Green averaged 7.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.

The Lakers also signed undrafted free-agent forward Malcolm Thomas on Tuesday.
