It was reported to today by Yahoo! Sports that the 3-30 New Jersey Nets have reached a buyout agreement with G Rafer Alston. Rafer "Skip to my lou" Alston will be free to sign with any team he chooses after the waiver period. Although the Miami Heat are said to be very interested in signing Alston, I thought with Derek Fisher's career taking turn for the worst so far this year, Alston being available is very interesting. To say the least, it is a option the Lakers should look at.
I know our PG position is very crowded right now, but Alston was a very useful piece for the Orlando Magic last year, and he proved he can play a good role on contending teams. If the Lakers were to sign Alston, they could also use him at the 2 as an obvious upgrade over Shannon Brown or Sasha Vujacic.
Do you think the Lakers should make a move for Alston?
