The Lakers waived Chris Duhon earlier this summer, making the 30-year-old point guard a free agent. The move will save the Lakers millions of dollars in luxury tax, so it was a no-brainer on their part. Duhon only appeared in 46 games for the Lakers last season, though he did shoot 36% from three-point range. Duhon also had a double-double in December with 12 points and 11 assists, so signing him for the minimum and giving him consistent minutes somewhere could be worth a shot for some teams. The New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers are two of the teams interested in Duhon’s services, according to Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo!

Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) August 7, 2013 However, with Beno Udrih reportedly deciding to sign with the Knicks, it’s doubtful that New York will continue to pursue Duhon. The fact that Duhon is one of those guys still available out there who hasn’t been snapped up by a team, yet he was starting for the purple and gold at times last season, shows you just how injury-riddled the Lakers were last year. Hopefully, with a point guard core of Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar, the Lakers should see a much more solid rotation at the one next season.
