Take a chance with Delonte. He's great on D and will carry out basic instructions.

Plus, once Nash gets Healthy, Delonte will be a great backup PG/SG.

The guy can hit 3's, former NBA Champion and played under Mike D'Antoni. But he's old now. Does he still have anything left?


That's what the FO sees.

Give me Delonte. He's a ticking time bomb but i'll take him. He's better than the talent that the Lakers have playing right now.


Precisely.

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

Oh snaaaap!

About time they considered some other PG options. While Duhon has done a decent job shooting 3s and dishing and Morris has showed the odd glimpse of talent they've played mostly like the 3rd and 4th options they are. That won't cut it in Antonis system which requires an elite PG and a good backup. With the Steves out we really need to make some moves or we will continue to lose. While this obviously won't solve all our woes we all knew that backup PG is an area that needs upgrading no matter what. I'd really like it if we gave Delonte West a shot as he's a guard that can actually play D. This team needs as much defensive help as possible.

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

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



Phew..lol.

If the Lakers are going to make trades to make some room, we'll have to wait until December 15 or some time after that date.

I wouldn't sign delonte. He's a distraction and zebras don't change their stripes.

Wow, totally forgot that we had a full roster. And just about half the roster is useless. Woohoo.
