With two spots still to fill, it is not too late for the Lakers to strongly consider bringing in unrestricted free agent guard Shaun Livingston, who has been rounding into training camp shape at Tim Grover’s Attack Athletics training facility in Chicago. If Livingston indeed will be healthy enough to play this season - as Grover vowed to me last week he would - then Livingston would be a asset to whichever NBA team signs him.
Warriors, Maybe Lakers Are Considering Shaun Livingston

P.S. If 5 guards and none of them are not named Kobe Bryant.

From Davis to Ellis to Livingston - its a quick road down the ladder of NBA points for the Warriors. They can have him. If you're in need of another ex-Clipper its Ross the Lakers should look at. But if they don't they're fine, the Laker team is set and ready to go as is.

Between Fisher, Farmar and now Sun available to run the point, Livingston is both unnecessary and redundant.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

Two more words: guaranteed contract
Basically. Farmar, Fisher, Sun Yue, Sasha and Kobe are all competing for 96 minutes of playing time (ignoring for the moment Dwayne Mitchell and Joe Crawford.)
conservatively, Kobe will get 30 minutes minimum at the SG position, with Sasha looking to get an additional 15 minutes there (both should get a few minutes at the SF) so far 51 minutes remaining.
conservatively, even if Fisher loses the starting spot to Farmar and only gets 20minutes this year, farmar won't be logging more than 25minutes a game. this leaves 6minutes a game for Sun Yue.
6 minutes a game. this is ignoring Dwayne Mitchell and Joe Crawford.
so, no, bringing in Shaun is beyond pointless. its redundant, and it defies logic. MBenga is a better option at this point. as at least he'll by challenging Mihm for backup minutes instead of 4 other players
I'm always thinking one step ahead. Like a carpenter, that makes stairs. -The Office <!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec--><!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc--><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->
