I know we have a few threads at the moment regarding the backup point situation. What do you think will happen now we know Blake will be out for 6-8 weeks?

Do we wait for Nash and work the Duhon and Morris, or do the Lakers look for a trade? If so, who would be on your preferred list (realistically :))

I don't think we will, simply because we have 4 point guards on the roster right now (not sure if DJO is considered a PG at this point).

To clarify, aquire meaning trades as well. Eg. Trade DJO/Morris/Duhon for Mr. X

Too bad we couldn't keep Sessions, that would have solved everything.

I don't see us trading for a backup pg, unless it means acquiring one in the process of moving Pau

I don't know if it would be a back-up point guard, but I feel like there will be a minor trade.

now all of a sudden Sessions is the savior when people were dissing the crap out of him near the end of last year :laughing:

Oh I love this :)

And yes I'd love to see Sessions too off the bench for us. But it's not gonna happen.

Am I the only one who doesn't want Sessions? Yeah, he'd probably be great offensively under the D'Antoni system. But the Lakers don't need any more awful defensive players in the rotation.

Sessions played poorly as a result of Mike Brown...


Johnny Flynn might be a good pickup.

He was selected RIGHT AFTER (or was it before?) Ricky Rubio!
He has serious talent.

This would be a great situation for Johnny Flynn.

a 10 day contract would be perfect for flynn. Throw him out there, and see what he can do. (cut Sacre, or Ebanks, or Clark)

He's in Australia playing in the NBL. He just played his 1st game for the Melbourne Tigers and was outplayed by the opposing PG Cedric Jackson who had a triple double.

I don't think so, the fact that we're log jammed at the point position once our top two PGs return in 2 months tops isn't welcoming. We're trying to shed salary anyways, not increase it.

It seems like players like this play great when on another team, but yet don't do so great on the Lakers. Why is that? Kobe?

He is averaging 16, 4 and 4 with the Bobcats. The dude can play, too bad the Lakers couldn't use him as other teams can.. For some reason a pg can't be a true pg when it comes to the Lakers, Kobe has to have the ball too much..

And there you go coming back to the "It's kobe's fault" argument of all your posts.

What Ramon Sessions are we talking about? The one in Charlotte is shooting 38% overall, 20% from three.

When he was in LA, he logged career highs of 48% FG and 49% 3PT.
