Los Angeles is also signing former Vanderbilt guard Scotty Pippen Jr., the son of Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen, to a two-way contract, sources said.
O’Neal, 22, played in 14 games last season with LSU, averaging 2.9 points per game. He will follow in his father’s footsteps in a Lakers uniform, where Shaq played eight seasons and won four NBA championships during a Hall of Fame career.
Pippen was a prolific scorer for Vanderbilt last season, averaging 20.4 points and 4.5 assists per game.
Summer League runs from July 7-17 in Las Vegas. The Lakers open their Summer League schedule against the Phoenix Suns on July 8.
