Will the Lakers tweak their roster?

Gilbert Arenas? Ramon Sessions? Morris Peterson? Kenyon Martin? Rasheed Wallace?

The names are out there, if you hunt for them. The question is whether the Lakers will actually sign and/or trade for one of them in order to bolster their roster. They could use help at the point guard and small forward positions, but will they gamble on a move?

“We’ve had conversations about a lot of players,” Lakers coach Mike Brown said. “There are a ton of players out there that we’ve had conversations about.”

We, of course, means Brown and general manager Mitch Kupchak.

The sudden rise of rookie guard Andrew Goudelock, who has averaged 11.5 points on 50 percent shooting in the last four games, could settle the issue of depth at point guard with Derek Fisher’s backup Steve Blake out a while longer with a rib/sternum injury.

Arenas and the others could be useful players, but it remains to be seen if the Lakers decide to add salary to their payroll or whether they stand pat for now. The trade deadline is March 15. Martin can’t sign with an NBA team until the Chinese team he signed with during the lockout ends its season later this month.

    I could care less who they sign as long as it will not interfere with them getting D Williams or D12… That means who ever they sign it should not be longer then the rest of the season….

    Personally I think they would be MUCH better off in the long run to allow G Lock to play & learn. He is doing one hell of a job as should be allowed to continue to grow into a real sub for Kobe. He is able to make his own shot & is also able to shoot form anywhere on the floor, just as Kobe could 10 years plus ago…

    They should also try & send off Morris & Blake to the Nets along with Pau for D. Willimas while holding on to Drew & Walton (Needed for salary) to the Magic for D12…

  • Los Lakers!

    I know the Lakers need some scoring off the bench, the starters cant do it all. We(the Lakers)need some energy in our bench. With Lamar out of the picture, its time to make roster changes.

    If there is any way of getting D Will, without giving up Pau or Bynum, that would be a big plus. If not, we should sign Gilbert Arenas to add some spark to the team bench.
