Walton at guard???

Phil Jackson suggested he might play forward Luke Walton at guard in upcoming exhibitions. Walton has yet to play in an exhibition after undergoing left ankle surgery during the summer. He is not averse to the idea, willing to play anywhere at any time.
“We’re loaded all over the court, at every position,” Walton said. “We have versatile people who can play multiple positions. You know, with the triangle, the (small forward) and the (power forward) are pretty much the same position out there. The (point guard) and the (shooting guard) are the same position out there. I know all five positions.
“It’s going to be interesting to see how (Jackson) works it. As a player, all you can do is work hard and try to get opportunities to do something.”
Walton sounded positively giddy at the prospect of playing Saturday night against Regal FC Barcelona, a Spanish club team, at Staples Center.
“I can’t wait to play,” he said.
