Huertas, 33, completed his first NBA season after a 14-year career in South America and Europe. For the Lakers, Huertas averaged 4.5 points and 3.4 assists in 53 games.

Huertas will be the third point guard on a roster that added Jose Calderon in a trade with Chicago on Wednesday. D'Angelo Russell will be the Lakers' starting point guard.

Huertas' ability to distribute the ball and settle the Lakers’ offense turned him into a dependable presence for the Lakers.
