Third-year guard Kyle Lowry and second-year player Mike Conley are pure point guards, while Crittenton will battle with shooting guards O.J. Mayo and veteran Marko Jaric for playing time. "It's up in the air right now," Crittenton said. "You never know if I'm going to be traded. It's the NBA. You can't be relaxed. I just want to be somewhere I can play."

I'd gladly take him back. If they want more cap space we can send Mihm and Charlotte's 2nd round pick for Critt and filler.

Heck yes, I'd take Critt back. I just doubt that Memphis is willing to take more backlashing from all the other franchises in the NBA.

I'd love to have this kid back. There were some on the board that didn't like the kid because of his "attitude on the court" one poster said. He's a little (bleep) just like _____. Fill in the blank with practically any player.

Lakers do need a big guard who can put the ball on the floor. Crittenton needs to find a team that has the pt he needs to develop.

That's the big problem, but I'd be glad to see them get him back.

J. Crit seems to be on the block according to various rumour sites.
Looks like they are posturing trade. Any interest for Lakes, you think?

The Lakers can't reaquire him via trade for a full year after the origional trade occured, which means a deal would have to go down in February. If he was cut/released, then I could see the Lakers being interested.

He worked with Mark Price to improve his shooting this summer and appears more poised handling the ball than last year. I hope where ever he ends up, he'll get some playing time. The kid has got potential and needs a team to shine on.

I'd love to see how he's progressed. If he was a Laker again I wonder who would get the playing time between he and Farmar?

Based on what? Potential? I'm not sure why some fans keep insisting he's going to become a star. He's battling for PT in Memphis. I know, he's still young and inexperienced, but when you're battling for PT in Memphis, projections of future greatness are a bit unrealistic.

Also noted is that we got Pau for Kwame.....cool

Crit will be available very near to the trade deadline. With a possible Odom trade then there may be some open roster spots that need filling.
