Quote:
After a rocky start to his career that has been challenged by hip surgery and two trades since being selected No. 6 out of Syracuse in the 2009 NBA draft, Jonny Flynn is seeking a fresh start this offseason and just might find it with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Flynn has identified six teams -- the Lakers, Portland, Phoenix, Toronto, Chicago, and Brooklyn -- as potential destinations and should find mutual interest from the potential suitors, according to a source close to the unrestricted free agent point guard.

Teams cannot extend any formal interest toward a player until free agency officially begins July 1.

Quote:
Flynn, 23, averaged 13.5 points and 4.4 assists per game in his rookie season with the Minnesota Timberwolves when Sessions was his backup, but has struggled to find a consistent role since then. During the 2011 draft, he was traded from Minnesota to the Houston Rockets where he was the third point guard in coach Kevin McHale's rotation behind Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic. Houston traded Flynn to the Portland Trail Blazers in March. Flynn backed up Raymond Felton and Nolan Smith in Portland before getting a chance at significant playing time late in the season. Flynn averaged 10.7 points and 7.3 assists when given the opportunity to play 20 minutes or more in four games for the Blazers, including 18 points and 11 assists in Portland's regular-season finale.

Hes been very injury prone these last few seasons, it would be quite the gamble.

Worth it for a couple mil per season as a third PG or a backup to a big minutes guy like Lowry.

Otherwise, no thanks.

I'd take him on the cheap as a backup or 3rd PG.

Nice to see a player say that TO is on of their preferred destinations!

If we do trade Calderon and bayless or drop either, I think he would be a fine back up PG. I dont know about third though, i dont think he would be happy with that lol. 13 and 4 is backup worthy

Nash/Flynn
Derozan/Barbosa?/Forbes
Iguodala/JJ/Kleiza
Bargnani/Amir/JJ
Valanciunas/Gray/Amir


Flynn + Barbosa off the bench would be the quickest bench backcourt in the NBA. lol


Could you imagine the run outs if we had Lowry, Flynn, Barbosa, Derozan.

Harsh....Flynn has potential...if you can be assured that he would stay healthy he would make a great back-up that could push and challenge for the starting role. When given the minutes he's put up better stats than most starters in the league. In a controlled system, Flynn would do well.

I'd rather him than Bayless, as the 3rd string PG of course.

That's a nice ball park for him and still gives the team monies to go after Nash and trade for AI.

He's expensive for a crappy PG. But he's been all busted up. If he can get back to 100% healthy, he can tear things up. But that is a pricey IF.
