We’ll keep you updated on everything today. Chad Ford was just on ESPN radio:

-Talks about the Bobcats coming in as a 3rd team.
-The Wolves contacted the Bobcats (there really trying to push a trade)
-The Bobcats would need to get Amare or Marion in return.
-If the deal doesnt work there “Possibly” maybe another team KG will head to in this 3 team deal – sounds like the LAKERS!

  • kb24

    but MARION suns will let go of marion. doesnt look good

  • mikedeezy2k8

    why are the the suns so stupid you dont trade amare

  • XxlakeshowxX

    that is definately true. why wouldnt they want lanky LO and Bynum. a good future player…if you like guys with no drive to win

  • mikedeezy2k8

    why do they wanna get rid of amare lol they are stupid.

  • heffa

    Dude, I’m going to have a heart attack w/ all this. Bottom line is Kevin Garnett & Kobe w/ a bunch of role players equals a championship run. How can it not??? Mitch needs to get on the phones & start talking to the Bobcats who are begging for a deal to be made.

  • Brandon

    This all started when we RUSHED to trade Shaq. we should have traded him for KG in the first place!!!!!

  • ray

    the lakers have more to offer charlotte, and then the lakers could send #8 to minny. but mchale does NOT want to send garnett to the lakers

  • heffa

    No joke. I mean I know it’s all said and done, but you think we couldn’t have gotten a better quality player(s) for Shaq at the time??? We need West back to do some magic.

  • http://ld2k.com LD2k

    If McHale is under the pressure of getting KG to a team, I’m sure he’ll feel out his options. I think Lakers are in a GREAT position to get him UNLESS Phx. gives up Amare.

    Say they don’t give up Amare and Phx. offers Marion.

    What is better?

    Odom Bynum or Marion? It’s simple. We may be in a good position to land the Big Ticket here tonight.

  • heffa

    I agree w/ you LD2k. I think it totally is all about if they are willing to give up Amare.

  • Mr RiCo

    Yes, my prediction was EXACTLY a 3-way mediation deal through the Bobcats to get KG here to L.A.! :]

  • KOBEISKING

    LD2K YOURE A FLIPPING GENIUS

  • http://ld2k.com LD2k

    Bucher says KG to Phx. is not “dead,” but pretty much NOT happening at this point. Doesn’t think KG will get traded tonight. But we’ll see… I like the fact that Lakers may be working UNDER THE RADAR.

  • http://www.mr47.com mr47

    But doesn’t it also depend on who gets that third team to work with them? If PHX throws marion at the bobcats, aren’t we screwed? We would have to count on marion declining that trade as well.

    I wouldn’t worry about amare anymore. D’Antoni already said they aren’t gonna do it. Plus I read something from the Suns forum where a user said something along the lines of, “we aren’t trying to trade amare, ESPN is trying to trade him”.

    Lets hope them Bobcats bite with us.

  • XxlakeshowxX

    this is sooo exciting!! geez

  • Jeremy

    Any New News

  • kb24

    LD2K hopefully there working under the radar..

  • kobeguru

    If marion doesn’t want to go to minnesota or boston, why would he want to go to the bobcats? Phoenix also said they want the same 4 including marion and especially amare

  • Jeremy

    Anything Happen With The KG Deal?

  • ray

    lets hope the bobcats want something more than marion for the 8th pick! i don’t think marion is worth it

  • J-Cool

    Hopefully Bobcats Will Make A Deal With The Lakers.

  • KOBEISKING

    WE HAVE TO HOPE THE BOBCATS SUCKINESS GOES TO MARION AND HE SAYS NO.

    pLEASE CATS HELP US!!!

  • LakerNation1

    i think lamar is a more suitable choice than marion if i were the bobcats, and not just for KG sake

  • “Billy” Kupchak

    Here is my prediction as a knowledgable individual:

    “Lakers will have the Bobcats mediate a deal that would send KG to L.A. & get the #8 pick to Minnesota, so that everyone is satisfied.”

    Yes, you can quote me on that!

  • heffa

    Lamar vs. Marion maybe debatable, but Lamar & Bynum vs. Marion is a no brainer.

  • kb24

    marion=crap
    lamar bynum=great
    19 8 wolves=happy
    KG KB PHIL JACKSON = THREE PEAT CHAMPIONSHIP

  • LAalltheway

    As long as the Lakers have made an offer to the Bobcats, and we already know they’re willing to give up Bynum and Odom and then some, I think we have the upper hand.

  • heffa

    We should totally have the upper hand.

  • SUNSRGAY

    [quote comment="2889"]This all started when we RUSHED to trade Shaq. we should have traded him for KG in the first place!!!!![/quote]
    Actually they shoulda traded him to dallas because they were offering dirk for shaq straight up. But noooooooo, cupcake and buss didn’t want shaq to be on the west. Look at shaq now, aging and useless almost. Dirk on the other hand gets better each year.

  • mikedeezy2k8

    yea the suns know they only wanna not let us get kg, they know thye have no intention on givin up amare.

  • LakerNation1

    the suns love crapping on us come playoff time. they know thats over once we land KG…

    those arizona bastards

  • mikedeezy2k8

    thats exactly true lakernation1, they just dont wanan see us come up.

  • LETSgetKG2LA

    ok let me just say that if KG comes to either lakers or suns, he would be successful. in my opinion he should go with lakers with KB24 being the best player there is, it will be like the kobe and shaq dynasty all over again except shaq would be KG who is 10 times better. ALSO…lakers are offering more and as this says…[quote post="388"]“we aren’t trying to trade amare, ESPN is trying to trade him”[/quote] lakers have a better offer. but i think if this doesnt work out either they will get JO or my thought is Kobe is packing his bags

    CROSS YOUR FINGERS!!!

  • KOBEISKING

    pLEAASE KG DEMAND TRADE TO LAKERS

  • cooleo24

    wat about a 3 team trade

    T-wolves get:Oneal and or add in 19th pick as well

    LAkers get:KG

    PAcers get:larmar&Andrew

  • lakerfan81

    I’d love to get KG in a lakers Uniform but if he does go to the suns I hope that they have to trade amare not just marion. Bevcause getting Garnett only makes them alittle bit better but having both amare and KG that would be horrible (for every other team).

  • “Billy” Kupchak

    I told you so! ~lol~ It’s ALWAYS the trust factor that gets in the way. No one trusted me on the ShoutBox, so people will be apologizing to me for insulting my intelligence. Thank you & have a nice day!

  • kevin

    dont know where to put this but

    Katz Sitting On KG Rumor?
    June 28, 2007 – 6:24 pm
    RealGM -
    Andrew Perna of RealGM is reporting that ESPN’s Andy Katz just received a phone call from an NBA executive, regarding a blockbuster deal. Katz repeatedly said the words “I won’t say anything until later.” The name Kevin Garnett was mentioned several times.

    We’re hoping to figure out the details before it’s announced.

  • k0be da 1 andonly

    YES!!!!!!!!! Ofcourse KG is coming Here, Mike D’antoni said he will not trade Amare and Marion DOESNT want to go to the Charlotte Bobcats

  • cooleo24

    why cant the lakers have a three team trade with t-wolves and indi

  • http://getgarnett.com John

    I’m scared it could be kobe to charlotte, kg to lakers, and young players n pick to minny, but that’s just a bad felling. **not a rumor** We shud offer farmar in the package too that would make our trade request undeniable better with amare or stoudamire

  • “Billy” Kupchak

    [quote comment="2921"]wat about a 3 team trade

    T-wolves get:Oneal and or add in 19th pick as well

    LAkers get:KG

    PAcers get:larmar Andrew[/quote]

    Jermaine O’Neal WILL NOT have the same 20/10 #s that he easily was given playing in the Western Conference. This is a bad trade to merely satisfy Kobe Bryant.

  • KOBEISKING

    Anyone news

  • ray

    oneal won’t be as good in the western conferance. he will be going against better players

  • lakerfan81

    Actually that was two sided Mavs were hesitant to make that deal as well. It was just a rumor I don’t think any deal with the mavs was even considered.

  • kb24

    biily is right wolves want to rebuild and dont waant joneal

  • J-Cool

    k0be da 1 andonly How Did You Find Out About This?

  • Lakerboy248

    Mr. RiCo, changed your name to Billy Kupchac!!!!!! LOL

    I hope you’re right because I believed you in the shoutbox.

  • cooleo24

    ADD portland to the equation

  • “Billy” Kupchak

    [quote comment="2932"]biily is right wolves want to rebuild and dont waant joneal[/quote]

    Yes, I am always right when it comes to the Lakers! :]

  • KOBEISKING

    we should find out in about 20min brace youreselves

  • kb24

    espn just sed that the lakers are not talkin to nebody about trades right now!! f’en cupkakes do something!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DeepFrost

    Damn… hey Billy do you know anything ’bout what Marion says of goin’ to the Cats? cuz that’s a real pain in my ass for now…

    but still I feel KG’s gonna be in LALA land)

  • “Billy” Kupchak

    From my previous understanding, the ACTUAL drafting begins at 4:20pm and lasts for about 10 minutes. Someone please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks!

  • cooleo24

    i think ur rite. but on mi guide it starts at 4:30

  • DeepFrost

    I don’t trust BSPN… no one in his right mind does…

  • cyrus

    Hey J-Cool,

    Here we are, Ventriloquist=Cyrus.LOL

  • J-Cool

    How You Doing Cyrus?

  • “Billy” Kupchak

    DeepFrost, my understanding is that Marion will not sign an extension with the Bobcats if he wasn’t even willing to play for the Celtics. You finally decide to seek advice from me AFTER putting me down on the ShoutBox, ey? ~lol~

  • kb24

    so freakin anxious

  • kb24

    ld2k’s a friggin genious

  • DeepFrost

    Billy I was neutral… I never put down nobody in the shoutbox… but sometimes u sound too mysterious and…good)).. to be true… but not now I guess…

  • kb24

    lets not give billy his props until it actually happens

  • kb24

    bucher sed garnett will not move tonight

  • DeepFrost

    why not? maybe the guy has his sources… nicknames don’t mean everything…

  • “Billy” Kupchak

    I have NEVER put a timeline on WHEN the 3-way deal through the Bobcats will occur. All I’ve been told is that THIS is how the Lakers will obtain KG if KG is going to be traded. Remember, it’s McHale who ends up pulling the trigger for it to happen or not happen. If he doesn’t, then the TWolves will get back less if he tries to trade KG before the February trade deadline.

  • DeepFrost

    ok then… we wait and see what happens…

  • nyla

    I’m starting to hate Ric Bucher! Has he ever gave good news regarding the Lakers??

    - Kobe wants traded
    - no positive KG to LA stories
    - Phoenix-KG-ATL
    - now Phoenix-KG-Charlotte

    I think I missed one, but you get my point.

  • lakersforlife77

    JIM GRAY JUST REPORTED THAT THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS ARE NEGOTIATING A DEAL FOR KEVIN GARNETT

  • eddyacer

    Bucher is our enemy, that has been established for the past couple of days…

    Can someone please post a picture of bucher with an X, as an anti-Laker?

  • Lakers305

    @l2dk and @everyone
    Did you guys know that the Lakers are the ones who caused the KG deal to Lakers to breakdown?? yes, yesterday am570 reported that The Lakers wanted KG to waive his trade kicker which he denied and also KG was asking for 2 year 44 million dollars extension. that would of cost the Lakers about 96 million dollars just to get KG. Also the Lakers didn’t want to take on Jaric’s and Hudson’s contracts.

  • _HuStLiN_PhEnOm_

    am570 are pretty much all idiots that dont know what there talkin’ about with the exception of the ones that start from 7-11 at night, I think they ‘kinda’ know what they’re are talking about.

    HACKSAW? LOL
