Boston Celtics summer league standout Jonathan Holmes has agreed to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Real GM's Shams Charania.

Charania reported Saturday afternoon that Holmes' contract will include a "significant partial (guarantee)."

Holmes won over plenty of Celtics fans in summer league, where he averaged 10.0 points and 5.0 rebounds while knocking down 48.1 percent of his shots (46.4 percent from the arc). Even during the string of impressive performances, Holmes seemed likely to sign elsewhere. Boston already has a surplus of players on guaranteed deals, and the team's deep frontcourt would not have provided much opportunity for the young forward.

Still, with a sturdy frame and smooth long-distance stroke, Holmes has the potential to develop into a capable NBA stretch 4. Despite being ranked No. 24 on DraftExpress' final list of top prospects, he went undrafted in June. The 22-year-old has said he chose the Celtics for summer league out of respect for the team's system and coaching staff.

MY NOTE:  Congrats to Holmes, he has earned this.  Too bad we have too many guaranteed contracts already.

Not surprised that this kid is getting a contract somewhere. His play did earn such a deal from some team.

Sorry to see this kid go. I figured it would be hopeless to try to sell him on the DL. He could make some noise in the NBA. I just wish he'd be doing it for a team other than the Lakers.

Good luck, Jon.
