I think Indiana has a few interesting guys.
Paul George
Brandon Rush
Dahntay Jones
any of these guys could be a very good back-up SG and they are all very athletic

If the Lakers get a new starting PG and can't find any way to get rid of Steve Blake, he might be the back-up SG. Blake has too much left on his contract to just sit on the bench and do nothing. The Lakers aren't getting rid of Derek Fisher, so he'll be the back up PG if the Lakers get a new starter.

Arron Afflalo (defense and 3-pt shooting)
JR Smith (everything, and insanity)

Both would be nice fits. JR may be too expensive though.

I'd like Afflalo. Brings it on defense and has really improved his offensive game since he came into the league. Not sure about Smith cause he can be a headcase sometimes.

afflalo has already gotten a 2.9 mil qualifying offer that he will more than likely accept and there isnt much we can trade for him (artest+a rookie) but denver wont let him go, i actuallly think shannon brown and sasha vujacic are the best choices for free agent backup 2's, shannon brown was better when the lakers had another guard that could shoot well and make up for shannon's lack of consistency

I have thought of several different scenarios trades that can improve our team, One was sign and trade for Chandler, JR smith and Afflalo for Odom and a pick the salaries would match

If the players give on the amnesty issue then we can do it by dumping artest contract

We could use part of the MLE on J.R. Smith or Arron Afflalo.

Who wouldn't wanna play in LA?

jr smith made 6 mil last year and hes probably gonna want more, afflalo doesnt want to move from denver and denver really wants to keep afflalo

I wouldn't mind getting all three of those guys either. We'd definitely be a lot deeper if we're only giving up Odom in that deal.

AGREED!! Two best options at SG.

Tracy McGrady, Jason Richardson and Jamal Crawford would be worth a look too, but Smith and Afflalo have age on their side.
