The Lakers announced Monday that Paul Sunderland has signed a contract to announce Laker games for two more years.
He will work on television alongside analyst Stu Lantz, who also recently agreed to a two-year deal.
Sunderland replaced Chick Hearn for 56 games during the 2001-02 season, then all of last season. Hearn died nearly a year ago.
"I'm absolutely thrilled the Lakers would want me back for an extended period of time," Sunderland said Monday. "To continue to work for the Lakers is the highest professional honor I could have. I'll do it for as long as they'll have me."
On June 11, the Lakers announced Joel Meyers and Mychal Thompson as their radio team. They have three-year contracts.
