Lakers Rumors: Team Shopping Steve Blake and Chris Duhon

The Los Angeles Lakers are looking to trade point guards Steve Blake and Chris Duhon, but at this time no one is interested in executing a deal, according to Chris Mannix on Twitter. The Lakers have a bench loaded with point guards and it is no surprise that the team wants to get rid them off.

With Mike D’Antoni now the head coach, there is really no need for all these point guards. The Lakers need three point shooters, so if a deal were to go down, it will likely involved a sharpshooter. This new offense needs perimeter players and at this point, the only true shooter the Lakers have is Jodie Meeks.

Steve Blake has filled in for Steve Nash since he is dealing with an injury, but Blake recently suffered a setback and it may take some time until he gets back on the court. Blake seemed to have picked up the Mike Brown offense pretty well, but with Brown no longer running the sidelines, only time will tell how Blake works with D’Antoni.

As for Chris Duhon, he has not seen a lot of playing time with the Lakers, but he has shown some potential. Brown did not have Duhon in games often, but D’Antoni coached Duhon while with the Knicks, so he may see some more playing time.
