Lakers possibly looking at Jonny Flynn

ESPN's Marc Stein has tweeted today that the Lakers are looking into opening up a roster spot to ease their PG crisis. Should a spot become available it looks like Delonte West is their first choice but that they would also take a look at Mike James and Jonny Flynn.

Two other available PGs that I have to believe Lakers will look at in addition to exploring trade options: Mike James and Jonny Flynn


Mike James working out in HOU w/John Lucas & in search of new team after playing w/Bulls in 2011-12. Flynn has NBA out in recent Aussie deal


It would be interesting seeing Flynn catapulted straight from the NBL into the middle of a team under the most scrutiny of any team in recent memory, imagine if he tuned their fortunes around after hardly setting the NBL on fire.

Flynn's stats are quietly becoming pretty decent and consistent. Top five in scoring, dishing a few assists. Not dominating, but hardly embarrassing himself now.

16.2ppg
3.8rpg
6.2apg
41%FG

If he was any other import people would be singing his praises but because he's "NBA draft pick Jonny Flynn" and everyone (most had no idea why he couldn't make a NBA roster this year) expects him to just dominate the league, those numbers are poor to them. He's actually picking up some steam..

In saying that i still think there are a number of PG better than him.
Ced Jackson
Gary Ervin
Adris Deleon (When healthy)

I totally agree... and not just to see the Breakers falter with his absence :) But is he even actively looking to still make the big show? Normally once an import signs on for multiple seasons with a team that's a sure fire sign that he's given up, and has he even gone over to summer camps? I can't recall...

'It would be interesting seeing Flynn catapulted straight from the NBL into the middle of a team under the most scrutiny of any team in recent memory, imagine if he tuned their fortunes around after hardly setting the NBL on fire.'

Perhaps effort levels due to a rookie coach?

BJF, interesting but three problems.

a) 48 minutes versus 40 minutes (acknowleding Flyn would play more minutes per game here than in NBA I think?)
b) offensively oriented league versus defensively oriented
C) assists are much more generously awarded in the NBA - 6.2 apg here in 40 minute game is pretty impressive

might need to do a per minute comparison.

re: Lakers possibly looking at Jonny Flynn

Yea, Cedric is by far the better player, but i guess Flynn is more well known the NBA people and possibly pushing himself to them a bit more, which may lead to him getting a NBA shot.

Cedric should be sending the NBA tapes of his tripple double v Flynn to say he is the better player!

But yea no hating on Flynn, Cedric is no.1, then to me Flynn is 2nd/3rd with Gary Ervin, he is definatly not a level above the NBL but a very very good import, it would be great to have all 3 of those guys in the NBL for the next few years.

His name was merely dropped as a PG who is available, not that the Lakers are looking at him.

Settle down....

Given he's only played a handfull of games I think those stats are pretty good - I think he just needs to be more agressive during games as
he can blow by anyone with ease. I also think the coach needs to play him so he's fresh at the end

Both jackson and ervin have better effort on D

I heard on the radio that rumours are floating of a possible NBA deal for Jackson. His contract contains an "NBA Out Clause" and I'm pretty sure he's still only on a 1 year contact with the NZ Breakers so good luck to him if it eventuates.

Flynn has played well offensively the past three games but has struggled to make plays down the stretch and has been beaten by his direct opponent. No doubt the Tigers' average structure hasnt helped.

I dont think anyone is saying he isnt playing well, just that he isnt "setting the league on fire" which is probably pretty accurate.

re: Lakers possibly looking at Jonny Flynn

CBS NBA analyst Ken Berger pointed to Jackson as a solution to the problem today, pointing to his triple-double against Melbourne's former NBA point guard two weeks ago.

"If Lakers look overseas, former Cleveland State PG Cedric Jackson has drawn interest from several NBA teams in the Australian League," Berger said.

"Playing for New Zealand, Jackson dominated Jonny Flynn (Melbourne) head-to-head this week with 28 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists."

I think its funny we never consider that the NBL is actually of a decent standard compared to the NBA.
Flynn might not be dominating here because were a defensive league unlike the NBA where its mostly showmanship.

The NBA sucks. Anyone saying otherwise has never seen an NBA game. It's by far the most overrated sports league on the entire planet.
