D.J. Augustin to the Lakers: Guide to Making the Move Work

The Los Angeles Lakers need to upgrade at the point guard position.

While that's been the popular sentiment since before the 2010-11 season concluded, there haven't been a ton of suggestions as to how the team should fill the obvious void on the roster.

It's going to take an unorthodox approach to solve the conundrum, as the Lakers already have more than $67 million on the books for the 2012-13 season.

That financial figure is certainly subject to change, but with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol accounting for approximately $47 million, it's almost certainly not going to be a drastic alteration.

Derek Fisher is aging, Steve Blake struggled in his first season with the team and the club got nothing from the position.

This is a club that really needs to start thinking about the future while remaining competitive for a title as long as Bryant is still on the roster.
