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. Sat, Feb 15, 2014 12:08:00 AM

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) was a DNP-CD in Friday's game against the Clippers.

If we continue to hear reports about Duhon's back we'll put him back on the injury report. Either way, he has no fantasy value.

Chris Duhon (back spasms) did not practice Thursday.

His status for Friday's game against the Clippers likely won't be determined until Friday after shootaround. Darius Morris would see additional run backing up Steve Nash if Duhon sits out again.

Chris Duhon (back spasms), who did not play on Tuesday, said he will "definitely" play on Friday against the Clippers.

Duhon's absence meant Darius Morris soaked up some time as the backup point guard, but Duhon should be back on Friday barring any setbacks.

Chris Duhon (back) will not play against the Sixers on Tuesday.

He suffered back spasms in Sunday's practice and is day-to-day with the injury. Darius Morris will have to pick up some of the slack to back up Steve Nash.

Chris Duhon is day-to-day with back spasms.

He didn't practice on Monday but he has been expected to return for Tuesday's game, so we're considering him questionable. With Steve Nash healthy, his presence doesn't have an impact in standard leagues.

Chris Duhon left Sunday's practice early due to back spasms, but he's expected to play on Tuesday.

He has been playing about 13 minutes per game with Steve Nash back in the fold, which excludes the garbage time on Friday. If Duhon can't suit up for Tuesday, the Lakers might have to count on Darius Morris to back up Nash.

Chris Duhon finished Sunday's win with 14 points, four assists and four 3-pointers, while playing 30 minutes in another start at PG.

The veteran launched 10 attempts from downtown and clearly has a green light from Mike D'Antoni while Steve Nash (leg) and Steve Blake (abdomen) are out of the picture. With 10th-round value over the past two weeks, he's worth a look for those in need of 3-pointers and assists.
Sun, Dec 16, 2012 09:45:00 PM

Chris Duhon scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting (all threes) with two rebounds and five assists in 31 minutes on Friday against the Wizards.

Duhon was seen holding his back during the game, and we'll let you know if he pops up on the injury report. He is a low-end PG option in deeper formats until Steve Nash returns.
Fri, Dec 14, 2012 11:44:00 PM

Chris Duhon came to life with 12 points, four 3-pointers, five rebounds and 11 assists in a start at PG on Sunday.

This makes three straight solid games for Duhon as a starter, and owners looking for short-term assists and 3-pointers should overcome their disbelief and take him as a flier. Steve Nash has been deemed unlikely to return during the Lakers' upcoming road trip, solidifying Duhon's week-long outlook.
Mon, Dec 10, 2012 12:07:00 AM

Chris Duhon scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 36 minutes on Friday against the Thunder.

This is certainly an eye-opener and surely you or your friends told a Chris Duhon joke tonight. But after six points, five rebounds, and seven assists on Tuesday it's possible that he's taking to Mike D'Antoni's system well and this is the short-term future for him until Steve Nash returns.
