Chris Duhon PG LAL 1 Month
Chris Duhon signed with Caserta in Italy on Friday, according to Yahoo! Sports.
He had a couple bright spots thanks to coach Mike D'Antoni and some other injuries to fellow point guards, but he'll have a tough time ever making it back to the NBA. Duhon is probably more famous for the picture on Twitter of his Lamborghini breaking down earlier this month, which isn't really a bad thing. He's unlikely to be back in the NBA, but at least he's still able to play ball for a living.

Chris Duhon was the victim of a hit-and-run on Saturday, while walking with his brother-in-law through a parking garage in Orlando.
Duhon reportedly landed on the car's hood and slammed his head into the windshield. He was taken to a hospital where he said he couldn't remember the incident, but it seems he avoided any major injuries. Duhon, who drew passing interest from the Knicks and Sixers this summer, intends to press charges against the as-yet-unidentified assailant.

Free agent Chris Duhon is garnering interest from both the Knicks and the Sixers.
Duhon, who is somehow only 30 years old, was waived by the Lakers back in June and has drawn little interest. A return to the Knicks would bring him back to the place where he averaged a career-best 11.1 points and 7.2 assists per game in 2008-09. Both teams have a hole at backup point guard, and Duhon could be in for something similar to the 18 minutes per game he logged for Los Angeles last season.

The Lakers officially waived Chris Duhon on Saturday.
Duhon's contract was only partially-guaranteed, so the move saves L.A. over $2 million next season. He's only 30 years old, so he's not washed up, but he also has a career FG percentage of 39.3 percent and is ill-suited for more than a backup role. In 46 appearances with the Lakers last season, he averaged 2.9 points and 2.9 assists in 18 minutes per game.

Chris Duhon is likely to be bought out, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Duhon is under contract for $3.75 million, but the Times writes that Duhon "won't be back," almost as if it's already decided. With the Lakers offering Duhon guaranteed money to walk away if the team does pursue a buy out, it wouldn't surprise us to see the veteran gladly accept it and walk away.

Chris Duhon (back) says he will play against the Lakers on Friday.
The Lakers could use Duhon with their lack of depth behind Steve Nash. Duhon didn't practice Thursday and he probably won't be near his season average of 22.8 minutes per game. He can be ignored in standard leagues.
