The "Kobe Bryant as de facto point guard" experiment will continue Wednesday night as the Lakers visit the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are tied with the New Orleans Hornets for the worst records in the Western Conference at 15-30. Phoenix recently fired Alvin Gentry, and former Lakers guard Lindsey Hunter has taken over coaching duties. The Lakers are coming into Phoenix on the second night of a back-to-back. It's a game they need to win if the team has hopes of climbing back into the top eight in the West.

Though terms were not released, neither is expected to have a full guarantee and will have to earn a spot on the team's 15-man roster (although the Lakers could decide to carry just 13 or 14 players). The Lakers were also linked in reports to 35-year-old forward Pete Mickeal and veteran point guard Sebastian Telfair . A player the Lakers once pursued in trade, Michael Beasley , was waived by the Phoenix Suns.

The Lakers have climbed to eighth place in the Western Conference with a 5-5 record. Despite their 1-4 start, the team is only one win behind predictions for Weeks 1 , 2 and 3 . Already with Coach Mike D'Antoni's influence, the Lakers have raised their scoring average to 100.5 points a game.  D'Antoni has said his goal is in the 110-to-115 range.
