Free agent forward Karl Malone has chosen to sign with the Lakers, a league source told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher on Thursday. Malone, who turns 40 on July 24, will settle for the veteran league minimum of $1.5 million in order for a shot at an NBA title. His decision comes just two days after point guard Gary Payton also opted to join the Lakers. Malone spent his first 18 seasons with the Utah Jazz and his 36,374 career points rank second only to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 38,387.
