Lakers sign C.J. Giles

INGLEWOOD, CALIFORNIA (TICKER) —The Los Angeles Lakers signed forward C.J. Giles on Friday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 6-11, 240-pound Giles, who played two seasons with the Kansas Jayhawks before transferring to Oregon State, appeared in 10 games for the Beavers last season before being dismissed from the team in late January. He averaged 6.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game at Oregon State.

He had a history of behavioral issues at both schools, which led to his dismissal from Kansas and once caused him to be benched at Oregon State for a pattern of showing up late to practice.
