The wizards cut him earlier...they were DESPERATE of PG help and they cut him. That speaks volumes. He's not NBA ready yet

I agree. We have a solid 3 guard rotation right now and Trevor can give us some minutes at the 2 if necessary. There's no need to rush or panic and I think signing Shaun Livingston to a couple of 10 day contracts might not be a bad idea at all. At a minimum, Philip can see what he does in practice. The problem is that while he's a big guard, he's neither a great defender or outside shooter, which are both Phil Jackson requirements. Nevertheless, why not see if he can show his stuff?

Yup, I don't see how we can go wrong if we give him a 10 day contract.

honestly we should sign him and bring him into camp next season and see if maybe a couple years removed from the injury he could be our back-up of the future

EDIT: livingston was who i was talking about

What I like about the idea is that Philip could get a sense of his basketball IQ and whether he might be a long term fit. Because of his setback, neither he nor the Lakers would be in a rush to develop him this year, but he could get back to full strength by the middle of next year and potentially share the pg position with Farmar after the 2009-10 season. He would be an inexpensive signing for a 2-3 year deal. If it appears after 10 days that he would be too much of a project, then cut him loose. That and the fact that he would occupy the one remaining roster spot are the only risks that I see, but that might be enough for the Lakers' brass to can the idea.

that spot is there for an emergency and while losing luke and farmar isn't an emergency i would say a 10 day contract or 2 doesn't hurt too much and if he turns out to be worth the spot well then thats a good thing

can't be worse than sun yue

imagine how HUGE of a move that would be if the lakers could salvage that career to anything near the hype it had back in 04. people forget he's only 23.

exactly for the upside and cost it is almost a 0 risk high reward scenario.

i mean if he becomes a 10ppg 4apg guy this would have been a smart signing
