Yea we have gotten that desperate any teams have a good backup point they would be willing to deal like lou williams, or henrich. okc backup point is sick

or any shooting guards that can translate to point


also any free agent shooting guards who can play point

J.R smith if he learned to pass and control himself might be a good point same with ellis

Lowry would be perfect. He's the best defender at the PG position and Houston already have Dragic and Flynn. Odom for Lowry and Thabeet.

Collison would also be good. Quick, can shoot, penetrate, defend and Indiana just traded for George Hill. Perhaps they're willing to trade as well. Odom for Posey, Collison and either Psycho T or McRoberts.

DJ Augustin. No thanks. Cant shoot very well, mediocre defense at best, bad passer.

I do like Lowry we wont get collison indy wont let him go, we have our backup point guards Fisher and blake actually they should be put in when its garbage time.

I wouldn't mind seeing Lowry in a Laker uniform. He really came into his own last season.

Thats why I think we should start Morris over fisher, people are asking the wrong question. Its not a question if Morris should have to earn it over fisher because he is a rookie, the question is does Fisher still deserve to start just because he is a veteran the answer is no. Once your speed and reflexes are gone there gone for good.

I think the teams they're on also have to want Lamar:

Lou Williams - Sixers have shown interest in Lamar.
Jarrett Jack - Both Hornets PFs are free agents.
Jameer Nelson - They don't have a good starting PF and they can put Arenas in the starting line-up.
Kirk Hinrich - They are losing Jamal Crawford and want a good 6th man. Jeff Teague ended up playing more minutes than him in the playoffs and he may be ready to start for them.
Toney Douglas - They can move A'mare to C and start Lamar, or move him to the bench because their bench isn't good.

These guys are good options, but none are good enough for a straght up trade with LO.

You're right. I don't think I saw one that jumped out at me as a good straight up deal though. The Lakers should get more players in those deals and try to unload some of their bad contracts too.

I only mentioned Lamar because I don't really see the Lakers making a deal that doesn't include Lamar. Most of the Lakers are on awful contracts.

Well if this lockout doesn't end soon then Morris will not get that chance this season if there is one.
