Default Point Guard options

So we have all at some point agreed that we can use an upgrade at the point guard position. Let us all take turns to examine who is out there, and what possible options the lakers can pursue.

I have not heard about what the warriors did with Acie Law. Did they end up keeping him or did he sign elsewhere? What would it take to get Acie Law? Clearly he is not a minimum wage player as I myself, still consider him to be a prospect.

Sebastian Telfair is also a free agent on the TWolves. Any word on whether they kept him, are keeping him, or if he's leaving?

I also like the thought of Aaron Brooks and Nick Young. I know that Nick Young is a shooting guard, but he can handle the ball well, he's very young and athletic, and against the lakers, him and Kobe sure like to compete. Its fun watching those.

Now... Let us evaluate what we have to offer

Picks
1st round pick: 2012 from Dallas
1st round pick: 2012
2nd round pick: 2012

Prospects
Derrick Caracter
Devin E-banks
Andrew Goudelock
Darius Morris

Expiring contracts
The lakers do not have any attractive expiring contracts.

It seems to me that landing a young guard could be very well possible, if we are talking about a Kirk Hinrich caliber point guard. We would have to throw in a first rounder, probably 2 of our young prospects, and a role player that can still make an impact, i.e. Metta World Peace.

If you guys have any ideas for who to trade, and what point guard you would like, feel free to share!

Keep posting!

Pulling off something for Hinrich, Teague or Lou Williams should be the primary objective.

If we aren't getting any of those just sign Baron for the min. and hope he can play like last year on a more consistent level.

there are no upgrades available thru free agency.
Baron Davis is injured and you never know what you get in the best of times.
Agent Zero is not a true PG, but at least he can spread the floor.

My money is on Zero...he will be signed for minimum dollars.

Sounds like Baron could be heading to the Knicks.

Yes, I mentioned Mo Williams from a separate thread, but Acie Law? Telfair? And even a SG?REally>?
Is Steve Blake really that bad for you guys?
Steve has hovered around 10 pts, 6 assists per 36 mins of play the past few years.
He has a career 3pt % of 39%.
Just before Phil decided to over rely on Fish last year, Steve averaged 10pts 6.3 assists at Portland and with Clips.
Im not saying he would be an allstar but IMO, he would be far better than other alternatives right now. Unless ofcourse we are talking about players who have been in allstar games, averaged more than 15 pts 8 assists/game ,shoot a decent % from the 3pt area AND HEALTHY.

My money would be on Zero also, even though I wouldn't like it. I don't care about his playing abilities, im talking about his behavior. His pranks are too far. I wouldn't want him causing locker room problems. But yes, I agree he's another scoring threat that can spread the floor. Him and Kobe can be the primary ball handlers. It'll take pressure off Kobe.

Agent Zero would be just fine. Kirk is a nice addition as well.

i would take the chance and look at Blake, Fish,... under coach Brown. we all have to accept that Phil is gone and with him the triangle, the no-action for rookies,...

and then make the moves for new players.

signing Zero could have some real benefits:
1. instant offense off the bench, and/or
2. if starter, spreads the court, can't double anyone and
3. an attraction for Dwight Howard.

I've long been a Hinrich fan.
I was really hoping ATL would resign Crawford (super suprised they let him walk, especially for the low amount of pay he will be getting), then I thought they may be interested in moving Kirk for the LO TE, along with a future pick.
(So esentially we'd get Kirk for LO). Not so sure they want to move him now though, but I agree, he'd be a nice fit.

If we can get him for a cheap 1 year deal I say why not.
But I heard the Knicks want him as well.

How is he health wise?

Who I would sign up is Aaron Brooks.
