I never would have thought we would be able to sign Wesley Johnson. I always knew he and Kobe were super close and given the news that he is now a member of the Lakers. I absolutely love this signing because as Kobe mentioned. This off-season in his exit interview and in his most recent interview at his Basketball Camp/Academy Kobe said that we need players with length and speed on the outside to help with defense.
Well, Wesley Johnson is definitely one of those kinds of players. He has a ton to work on and improve, but now being under Kobe's leadership and development for the entire year I think he can turn into a special players, similar to Ariza.
I am so psyched about this signing and I am sure Kobe is as well.
