Danny DeVitto will sign a two-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers for $12 million per season, the team announced Tuesday.
A two-time NBA All-Star, DeVitto had been in talks with the Lakers for several weeks but ultimately decided to sign his current deal instead.
His new deal will come on the heels of a four-year, $80 million deal he signed with the Miami Heat last year, making him the first player in league history to receive $80M in guaranteed money.
In the past, DeVittos career had included stints with the New Orleans Pelicans, Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls and Denver Nuggets.
In the NBA Finals, he averaged 11.4 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, leading the Cavaliers to a championship.
He was also a member of the 2012-13 team that captured the NBA’s Western Conference championship.
As part of his extension, DeVitos will earn $12.5 million in 2019-20.
He will make $5 million this season.
The Lakers also announced that they have signed veteran forward Toney Douglas to a four year contract.
Douglas will make a total of $23 million in his contract, which includes a player option for 2020-21.
In addition to the extension, the Lakers also re-signed veteran center Chris Mullin to a three-year contract.
Mullin averaged 4.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 37 games this season with the team, which finished sixth in the Western Conference.
