The Los Angeles Lakers added some depth to their front court Monday, signing former top 10 pick Yi Jianlian.
The deal is for one year at the veteran's minimum of $1.13 million but could end being worth as much as $8 million if he reaches several bonuses, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Bucks drafted Yi with the No. 6 pick in 2007 as a 20-year-old out of China. Yi lasted just one season in Milwaukee before being dealt to New Jersey, where he spent two seasons. He averaged a career high in points (12.0) and rebounds (7.2) in 2009-10 with the Nets.
Yi last played in the NBA with the Mavericks during the 2011-12 season, appearing in a career-low 30 games. He has played in the Chinese Basketball Association since that final NBA season.
The 28-year-old forward was one of the bright spots for the winless Chinese national team at the Rio Games, averaging 20.4 points and 6.6 rebounds.
