Lakers News: Leandro Barbosa Potential PG Target For Lakers

Leandro BarbosaThe backcourt is an absolute mess for the Los Angeles Lakers right now. Steve Blake’s injury has the storied franchise scrambling for a solution and that solution may turn out to be veteran combo guard Leandro Barbosa. Former Lakers Darius Morris and Chris Duhon have been mentioned as potential fits, but Barbosa may be the best of the bunch.

According to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com, Barbosa is on a short list of candidates to help fill the void in the backcourt:

While the Lakers’ front office attempts to address the void left in the backcourt with Blake, Steve Nash and Jordan Farmar all out with injuries, Kobe Bryant will shoulder the load at point guard. Bryant will be the floor general moving forward with Xavier Henry coming off the bench and Jodie Meeks starting at shooting guard.

Although Bryant may be able to handle the switch to the point for the time being, a move may be needed with the Lakers more than likely struggling to stay afloat in a highly competitive Western Conference without Farmar, Nash and Blake.

    FYI if looking for some instant offense at PG,he’s you’re guy tbh.

  • Bob Thompson

    Old and balky knees…we don’t need another injury-prone PG. Kendall Marshall is the answer.

  • Greg Silas

    D’Antont style is hurting all the players. Can run an offense like that when half the team is old ass hell

  • kobe24

    • Mass Power

  • Marty Susman

    The Lakers can sign anyone they want as long as it’s not more then a 1 1/2 year deal. Players like Wall & Irving & Westbrook will all be available in 2015 meaning unless they can get a super point don’t sign anyone to more then the 1 1/2 year deal…. Lowry is a “good” point & if we can get him in a deal & we can throw in Nash & only give Lowry ss short time deal, go for it….

    while theyre at it, why dont they bring in shawn marion, joe johnson, amare stoudamire… heck the entire phoenix lineup back in the mid 2000s…. FAIL!
