EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Lakers have signed forward Marcus Landry.

Los Angeles announced the deal Monday.

Landry averaged 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in five appearances with the Lakers' summer league team, earning an invitation to training camp. The 6-foot-7 swingman's 3-point shooting accuracy should fit well into coach Mike D'Antoni's system, giving him a chance to make Los Angeles' roster.

He is the younger brother of Sacramento forward Carl Landry.

Marcus Landry played for the New York Knicks and Boston during the 2009-10 season after catching on with New York as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee native has played in the NBA's D-League and in Puerto Rico, China, Spain and Venezuela over the past three years.
