Lakers Interested in Chris Paul or Deron Williams over Dwight Howard?

According to InsideHoops.com the Lakers might not be focusing on bringing in Dwight Howard this off-season after all. Rumor has it the Lakers will be looking to solidify another roster spot that has recently been problematic – the point guard position.

Apparently the Lakers wish list includes Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets and Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets. Both are currently under contract with their respective teams and would need to be acquired by trade.

There is no question that the point guard spot has been tough for the Lakers the last few seasons as Derek Fisher’s play has declined as his age increased. With Mike Brown looking to move away from Phil Jackson’s triangle offense there is no doubt that the team needs a stronger guard running the point heading into the future.
