The Lakers have traded Radmanovic to the Bobcats for Adam Morrison and reserve Shannon Brown. Vlade was a great contributor to the community off the court and was a friend here to TLN. He will be missed; that being said, it is a business and as we’ve all seen, trades do occur. Here is the breakdown on the trade:
ESPN: The Charlotte Bobcats sent struggling forward Adam Morrison and reserve Shannon Brown to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday for forward Vladimir Radmanovic.The move is the third trade the Bobcats have made this season in a roster shakeup under first-year coach Larry Brown.
Morrison was the third overall pick of the 2006 draft and managing partner Michael Jordan’s first major move since buying into the Bobcats. But Morrison had failed to crack the starting lineup and his minutes had declined under Brown.
Morrison will give the Lakers an outside shooting threat, while the 6-foot-10 Radmanovic gives the Bobcats more depth up front.
