New, comments

According to both Marc Stein and Ramona Shelbourne, the Los Angeles Lakers are finally considering adding free agent Delonte West to shore up their point guard deficiency.

After a despicable loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers riding the point guarding mastery of Chris Duhon and Darius Morris, it appears the Los Angeles Lakers are considering adding Delonte West into the fold to serve as a stop gap while Steve Nash takes at least another two weeks to recover, and Steve Blake is out at least another two months. Both Marc Stein and Ramona Shelbourne are reporting that "sources" indicate the Lakers are interested in adding the mercurial back court player to their roster.
