Starter: Steve Nash
Backup(s): Kendall Marshall, Jordan Clarkson
The Lakers actually have some options at the point heading into next year, but the position is far from solidified.
Who knows if Nash will be able to suit up again? And while Marshall came out of nowhere to revive his career last season, he's definitely not a long-term solution at point guard.
Neither is L.A.'s second-round pick Jordan Clarkson. The Missouri product is more of a combo guard than a pure point who finished with more turnovers than assists over the course of his three-year collegiate career.
Still, the Lakers may have found value in Clarkson, as some projected him to go significantly higher than his No. 46 overall selection. He can provide some nice scoring punch off the bench.
Re-signing Jordan Farmar on the cheap would be a nice bridge to whatever the true long-term solution is.
Or the Lakers can take the more expensive route and go after the top free agent at the position—Kyle Lowry—as NBA.com's David Aldridge suspects.
Los Angeles can also put in offers on restricted free agents Eric Bledsoe and Isaiah Thomas.
The Suns have maintained all year that they are prepared to match any offers for Bledsoe, and though Thomas has proved a lot of people wrong, his flaws are glaring, and overpaying for him is not a wise move.
