With the Lakers out of the playoff picture, it will be interesting to see how they use these three as the decides whether it will rebuild or not.
Blake had a great start to the season, putting up 9.8 points and 7.7 assists per game in 21 games. He’s been sidelined with an elbow injury
Nash has appeared in just 6 games, while being limited to just 22.5 minutes of action. He’s averaged just 6.5 points and 4.8 assists.
The Lakers brought back Farmar this offseason after he played overseas. He’s played in just 22 games, averaging 8.7 points and 4.7 assists.
Kendall Marshall, who was signed after the trio were out, has averaged 10.5 points and 9.7 assists.
It is to be seen who will be the starting point guard and who’ll be left out of the rotation.
