No firm decisions made yet but Lakers, I'm told, ARE weighing pros and cons of creating roster spot to sign Delonte West to ease PG crisis


Sense I get is that D-West, widely regarded as top available PG, is at the top of Lakers' list ... but word is they'll indeed look around

You dont even think twice about this, you bit the bullet and you waive Morris. Hes useless

One issue, of course, is Lakers have full 15-man roster. Among reasons they didn't sign D-Fish before Mavs: L.A. wanted to move one PG first

I like Delonte as a player, was very underrated back in Cleveland...but I don't think he could handle a backup PG role in an offense that will limit him greatly. He would be asked to play defense and hit open shots, but he wouldn't see as much time here as he would have back in Dallas, and while I'm fine with thinking he could make it here if given an opportunity, I would feel much better if the coach was Phil Jackson.

Take this statement, and retract it, since NOW he'll be thrown into the starting role. Give him starter minutes, and when he goes to the bench once Nash returns, he'll actually have a larger bench role than I thought he would (because our bench turned out to be pretty bad), so he'll work.

Without Steve Blake around, and Delonte having an opportunity to beat him out before Blake even gets a chance to play again (once Nash returns), this is now the perfect time to sign West. It's both out of desperation AND a smart move on our part, to get a temporary starter and someone who will make up for what we don't have in our second unit.

If it was still the Princeton, that would be different...but now, we're running, and he's needed. Get West.

my prayers have been answered. with delonte, this team is almost twice as good,,,a wing threat for the 2nd unit,thank god,thank god,thank the god that lets babies starve...

and i think Morris might have been playing so bad that we might bite the $bullet and cut him
also, tonight was bad for our PGs ,real bad, horrible stats, and duhon lost us another game recently with a late turnover,,,AND nash said 2 more weeks, all signs are pointing to delonte. please god. we might not even have to trade pau if we get delonte, pau and delonte can hopefully lead a decent 2nd unit

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.
