Top 5 Point Guard Options for the Lakers in Free Agency

With free agency right around the corner, the Los Angeles Lakers’ front office will have some tough decisions to make in order to improve this team moving forward. One of the areas the team must address in free agency is the point guard position. With Ramon Sessions potentially testing the free agent waters, the Lakers must decide whether or not to keep him or go in another direction.

Top 5 Point Guard Free Agents

#5 Mo Williams (player option)

Upside: Williams can score, pass and shoot from outside. The 29-year-old might not be a scorer of Deron Williams or Chris Paul’s caliber, but he can get the job done if given the green light.

Downside: Streaky. Williams can be inconsistent from time to time. Attitude might be an issue.

#4 Chauncey Billups

Upside: Proven winner that has shown the ability to win where ever he plays (Detroit Pistons, Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Clippers). Great outside shooter. Not afraid to take the last shot. Born leader.

Downside: Coming off an Achilles heel injury and is not a long-term option at 35-years-old.

#3 Ramon Sessions (player option)

Upside: Sessions is only 26-years-old with a lot of basketball left in those young legs. Along with the youth that is sorely lacking on the Lakers’ roster, Sessions also brings speed and the desire to improve.

Downside: Not a game-changer like Nash or Williams. Sessions has yet to prove he can take a game over if need be. Obvious flaws were seen in the NBA playoffs with Russell Westbrook and Ty Lawson torching Sessions on a nightly basis.
