Lakers News: Metta World Peace To Be Back-Up Shooting Guard

In a bit of a surprise move, Coach Mike Brown has decided that Metta World Peace will be playing minutes at the 2-spot as the primary back-up shooting guard. Eric Pincus from the L.A. Times talked to Coach Brown about it.

“That’s going to be my second unit,” said Brown. “Metta will be the two, [Antawn] Jamison is the three, [Jordan] Hill is the four and [Dwight] Howard or Pau [Gasol] is going to be the five.”

Brown experimented on Sunday against the Detroit Pistons with a lineup featuring Howard at center and Darius Morris running the point along with Hill, Jamison and World Peace.

Coach Brown, as we all know, has been experimenting with combinations for what seems like forever. It looks like he may have found something that he was pleased with.

As mentioned, he liked the combination of Morris, World Peace, Jamison, Hill, and Howard. That’s actually a pretty big line-up, especially when Pau Gasol gives Dwight a little breather.

Brown will still find minutes for Ebanks at either the shooting guard or the small forward spot. This makes Jodie Meeks and Chris Duhon the odd men out for now. Hopefully, Mike Brown will actually stick with this line-up.

We get to see this combination tomorrow night against the Utah Jazz when the starters go get some rest.
