The Los Angeles Lakers are suddenly in need of as many point guards as they can find, yet they are reportedly interested in trading two of them. When Steve Nash went down with a fractured leg, Steve Blake stepped in to replace him. However, Blake has suffered a strained abdominal muscle and is day-to-day. Chris Duhon is now second on the depth chart at point. But that doesn't seem to matter.
According to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, the Lakers have been trying to find a team interested in the two point guards.
The Lakers have been dangling Steve Blake and Chris Duhon in trade talks, source said. Predictably, not a whole lot of interest.Of course, there's not a whole lot of interest. Blake is a veteran, but he is injured. Duhon hasn't done much in the NBA. Maybe once Blake returns from his abdominal strain, Los Angeles will try to shop him again. Until then, though, it doesn't seem like interest will increase.

Blake has played for ten seasons in the NBA and has averaged 6.9 points per game. Duhon is in his ninth season and has averaged 6.8 points per game.
