Lakers have been trying to solve their point guard problem ever since Magic Johnson got husky. Ramon Sessions opted out his contract, so the only PG the Lakers have under contract is Steve Blake. None of these names should really excite you, but they are trying to upgrade the position.
While the Lakers have genuine interest in retaining the 26-year-old Sessions, they’re protecting themselves by pursuing a list of established, veteran free-agent point guards as well, a source familiar with the team’s plan for free agency said.
The Lakers are targeting a handful of veteran point guards including Chauncey Billups, Jameer Nelson and Kirk Hinrich, the source said.
