Lakers Rumors: Team Still Looking to Upgrade Backcourt

Kobe and NashThe Los Angeles Lakers are going to have Steve Nash on the court very soon, but the front office is still looking to add some more pieces to the backcourt.

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.com, the Lakers are open to adding more players to their backcourt and improving the bench. At this point, Chris Duhon and Darius Morris are helping Kobe Bryant in the backcourt while Nash is recovering from his injury, but the team may want other players.

The team is still studying its options as it seeks to improve the backcourt, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.com. Nonetheless, signing Delonte West isn’t in the team’s immediate plans, Shelburne reports

The Lakers need a productive second unit if it wants to be the last team standing in June. Bryant and Nash will do whatever they can to help the Lakers win, but at their ages, they cannot carry a team on their shoulders.

Delonte West was a name thrown out there in earlier rumors, but it seems as though the Lakers are not interested in signing him. At this point, it is unclear as to whom the Lakers are targeting, but don’t be surprised if the team pulls off a deal.

    I’d like to see the Lakers pursue acquiring Tayshaun Prince. It’d shore up our SF position, he’s still fast, can cut, and has an outside shot. We could probably get him from Detroit without having to give up too much. Cap relief and picks’d probably do it.

      There is an old folks home near by, maybe go over and find someone their..

  • Marty Susman

    The player who needs to go is Nash, he & Pau are the best trade bait this team has for youth, speed & power…

  • frankie

    They should get c.j.watson or hank thorns jr.best up and comming point guard.

    ehhhhh…….

    I’d like to see CDR get another shot. Blake, Clark, Ebanks, DJO, and Morris all gotta go. Ebanks, DJO, and Morris are all so raw; they’re years away from being quality guys. This team can’t wait that long.

      I agree but they let CDR go and Dallas has him now. He’s a member of their DLeague team so we’d have to trade for him now. Mitch and co blew that one. I’d wudnt mind havin K Mart for more toughness inside. Delonte West wud also be a great backup to Nash.
