Dudley averaged 4.9 points and 2.6 rebounds in 59 games for the Nets last season. He shot 42.3% from the field and 35.1% from 3-point range.
The Lakers, meanwhile, acquired Anthony Davis from the Pelicans last month in exchange for Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and three first-round picks. They then cleared cap space to sign a third star to pair with Davis and LeBron James when they dealt three bench players to the Wizards last week.
Davis also reportedly waived his $4 million trade kicker so the Lakers could have more flexibility.
“My goal is to win a championship,” Davis told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week. “I expect to win every time I step on the court, every game. I want to win a title. That’s what it’s about — winning titles. That’s the only thing on my mind.”
Los Angeles believes it is the favorite to land Kawhi Leonard, according to a report from the New York Times.
The Lakers also agreed to a one-year deal with Troy Daniels, according to multiple reports. He has connected on 40% of his 3-point attempts over 292 NBA games.
