As reported on the LG.net forums, a Chicago radio station (670 The Score B&B) reports that Chicago and the Lakers have agreed upon a deal. It is pending Kobe’s approval. Thanks to Halosage for posting:

LG.net: 670 The score B & B
48 hours for approval
- This is above Paxson’s head right now
- Lakers are sick of Kobe and want him gone now. Were amazed he got booed so badly last night

Here’s the deal:
- Does not involve Deng
- Does involve (best info at the moment) Kirk Hinrich
- 3rd team is the Kings
- Artest Going to Lakers

Also said Phx Was involve as a 3rd team but back off.
Kings getting involve.

    are you kidding me? i hope the lakers aren’t satisfied of a duo of hinrich and artest for the greatest basketball superstar in the last 5 or 6 years. that’s highway robbery!!! it shouldn’t be anything less than say a gilbert arenas caliber–not equal mind you but, the best scenario for the lakers.

    hinrich and artest?? there better be more….perhaps, hinrich, gordon, artest and a first rounder.

    it’s sad but, even magic is confirming that the lakers are fed up with kobe’s nonloyalty and public display of degrading his employers.

    if this deal goes through i will be one pissed off fan at both kobe and the lakers front office!………..HINRICH AND ARTEST FOR KOBE??? i taste puke coming out of my mouth.

    no way im deavastated

  • lafanfromindiana

    if all they were waiting on was kobe’s approval….i dont think hinrich would be in the bulls game right now.

    If the Lakers and Kobe can’t work this thing out and end up trading Kobe, I am done with both of them, it is a mess of franchise and if Kobe can’t be a man and face the situation that he has gotten himself into, I’m done with him to. There are too many positive sports stories out there to waste my time on the NBA and it’s selfish players.

    KOBE, BE A MAN AND STICK IT OUT WITH THE LAKERS, DID YOU HONESTLY THOUGHT THE LAKERS COULD BE A TITLE CONTENDER IN 3 YEARS?

  • foxxy

    KOBE DESERVES BETTER THAN WHAT HE HAS GOTTEN WITH THIS SORRY ASS LAKER ORG….SEE YOU KOBE IN THE WIND CITY!!!!

  • steve

    WOW..talk about band wagon

  • LJuice770

    this better be just a horrible rumor..kobe for hinrich/artest..that is nowhere close to what we should get if management does decide to trade him..has anyone heard or read anything about how bad trading kboe would affect the Lakers..i mean how would we work hinrich/artest or gordon/deng/thomas/noah into the rotation if either of those trades happen..arrgggghh..soo frustraed with the lakers FO..

    i dont think the lakers organization realizes that if they do this or any other trade half of the fans will stop going to the games and they will be worse then the clips

  • GoBEACH!

    W A C K! ! ! ! ! Lakers front office is out of their minds!

  • Nick Northern

    Get rid of this knuckle head Kobe already. He’s held this city hostage long enough. Every Laker fan and Lakers Organization stood by this idiot’s side during the rape alligation and look what we all get in return. He’s not even loyal to his wife what makes anyone think he’s loyal to his fans and those of you who support him, GET LOST you’re not a Laker fan. You’re nothing but a Kobe bandwagon. Back in the 90′s you were the Chicago Bulls fan. I Can’t wait for Kobe to go so all of you knuckle head followers can go with him and leave this Laker Nation to the “REAL” Laker fans.

    its all over but the crying ahhhhhhhhhhh!

    This sounds like a crap trade for the Lakers, they are not this stupid… I hope.

  • keep24

    This sounds like the trade that just might be up the Lakers alley.

    Remember, this is the organization that traded the most dominant center in the history of the NBA for Odom, Grant’s contract and Butler – which they turned around anf traded for Kawame Brown.

    In other words, they got Odom and Brown for Shaq!!!!!!!!!!

    What makes you think they will do better this time around?

    Artest and Hindrich for KB24??? This isn’t poker, Buss, you can’t bluff your way out of this one!

    That is too smart for the Lakers front office.

  • r3dempti0n

    Yes.. That is the question. Why don’t we get (insert name here) to come to LA to play with Kobe.

    yea, people seem to be oblivious of the fact that the foundation of this site was to get Kobe help not to trade him…Hellow TLN staff we’re loosing track of our goal here!!!
