The Lakers may have found a solution at point guard.

As first reported by ESPN's Brian Windhorst, Los Angeles acquired Cavs guard Ramon Sessions in a package deal.

The Lakers, who also get Christian Eyenga, send Cleveland Luke Walton, Jason Kapono and a 2012 first round pick.

While the Lakers have managed a 27-16 record, third-best in the Western Conference, their point guard play has been sporadic. Veteran guard Derek Fisher isn't starter-quality, and Steve Blake hasn't been the answer either.

In a reserve role behind Kyrie Irving, Sessions, 25, is averaging 10.5 points and 5.2 assists in 24.5 minutes per game.
