Not a rumor at all but a very interesting speculation, nonetheless. Sound-off in the comments and tell us what you think!

San Bernardino Sun: Usually you don’t want too many ex-Clippers on your team, but the Lakers probably know Elton Brand and Corey Maggette each are free agents after this season. If they aren’t paying Kobe, they probably could pay those two. Maggette is a great athlete; Brand is a great player and a great guy.

    Still… Brand + Maggette does not equal Kobe Bryant. End of story. then again.. Maggette + Kobe + Odom would be an awesome trio.

  • lakrfan4life

    starting line-up: fish, kobe, magette, odom, brand. now thats intimidating.

    kobe wont accept a trade to the clips because brand and maggette will be gone. a 3 way with dallas would work.

    fish
    magette
    lamar
    brand
    bynum

    thats sounds pretty good

  • Neo-Laker Era

    lakrfan4life, Brand is not a center. try again :-)

    I’ve been saying it all along, next season magette is comin here to the right LA team…
    Next years starting 5

    Fisher
    Kobe
    Magette
    Odem
    Bynum

    Or have magette as kobe’s back up

  • Neo-Laker Era

    Oh, and the whole point is to get Lamar AWAY from the 4 spot. So yes, try again lol.

    It doesn’t work under CBA rules, Lakers are still obligated to pay Kobe next year when Brand and Magette available. We are still way over the cap even with Kwame’s contract gone.

    Unless we do a sign and trade.

    Both Clippers are becoming Free Agents. First of all, we would have to get BOTH players to agree to sign(with total salary equal to Kobe’s 20 mil).(extremely hard)

    Second, Clippers would have to agree to take Kobe.(easy)

    And third, Kobe would have to agree to go to the Clippers.(impossible)

    The writer meant well, but doesn’t understand how things happen like us bloggers.

    I would love to have Brand. Maybe they will take Odom back in a sign and trade. I think Odom would thrive for the Clippers as the main go to guy. T\

  • Tim

    actually id rather have Brand alone and not both him and Maggette

    PG: Fisher
    SG: Kobe
    SF: Lamar
    PF: Brand
    C: Bynum
