Final grade: Blake

Steve Blake, backup guard:

His signing last summer looked a lot better on paper than it did on the court in 2010-11. He was the ultimate pass-first guard, which wasn’t a bad thing on a team with an abundance of shoot-first players. The Lakers hoped for more production with the ball in his hands, however. His 35.9 percent shooting was his lowest mark since he shot 32.8 percent in 2004-05, his second season in the league. They want more from him.

Stats: 79 games, 4.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists.

Grade: C.

Next: Shannon Brown.
