The Lakers are in a form of free-fall, losing their third straight game Tuesday night to the Cleveland Cavaliers. As they wait for Pau Gasol (knees) and Steve Nash (leg), is there anything to be done to staunch the bleeding?
According to the Twitter timeline of Marc Stein of ESPN.com, the Lakers are "weighing the pros and cons of creating [a] roster spot to sign Delonte West."
Stein notes that West is "at the top of the Lakers' list," but that he's heard the Lakers will "indeed look around."
West was recently waived by the Dallas Mavericks after a number of team conduct violations.
Stein also lists Mike James and Jonny Flynn as possibilities, although those names appear to be speculative.
If the Lakers were to add a free agent, a player would need to be cut first. The team isn't pleased with the development of Devin Ebanks, who was arrested last month on suspicion of DUI.
