Lakers Trade Rumors: Kirk Hinrich Pursued

The Los Angeles Lakers need a point guard. Anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves. The team offense always tends to bog down and causes them all sorts of problems. Neither Derek Fisher nor Steve Blake seem to be satisfactory answers at the position if LA plans on winning a title this season. There's just not enough support for the big three combination of Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum.

The solution LA seems to be interested in might be a few years too late though, and just seems to be another retread for the Lakers to pair up with Bryant in an aging backcourt.

Hinrich doesn't play too much for the Atlanta Hawks. Hinrich puts up around five points per game and shot under 34% from the field with just under 20 minutes played on average. He just seems to be someone who brings in more defensive presence for the defensive-oriented Mike Brown. But the offensive woes seem bound to continue if Hinrich is the guy the Lakers end up bringing in.
