Phx gets: Garnett

Boston: Marion

TWolves: Thomas Ratlif, West, #5

Bucher says:
– No convo beyond if KG wants Phx, we’ll send him there
– They haven’t dismissed the deal, VERY UNLIKELY
– Minny driving this (getting a feel)

Ford:
– Agrees that Minny are driving this deal
– Believes Atlanta will be the key
– Atlanta may give up #3 for Amare and or Marion
– Believes Atlanta has what Minny wants

Makes me believe, it’s still up TO WHERE KG WANTS TO GO!

    No KG to LA Deal

  • Jimmy M.

    Would it be possible to not trade anyone, and have a verbal secret agreement with Garnett that next year he will opt-out and join us so the team will be even better with Kobe Odom KG Bynum, as oppossed to just having Kobe KG?

    I suppose the issue right now is either getting Garnett or risk having an angry, unmotivated Kobe. But that scenerio would be so beneficial for the Lakers.

  • KB24KG21SUNSRGAY

    Yea this doesn’t look good for the Lakers, let alone any other team. According to the LA Times, KG is leaning towards Suns over Lakes. If KG goes there, say hello to a suns dynasty. I swear if they do manage to keep amare too, then kerr is one hell of a rookie gm

    phoenix can’t get garnett by just giving up the matrix,
    a)either give up more players
    or
    b)garnett’s not going to the suns

  • lakerfan81

    This whole thing depends on whether the suns are willing to part with Amare. IF they are they can get Garnett. If not I don’t see boston trading #5 for Marion. I think they want the 5th pick.

    i know wtf we offered ODOM N BYNUM N SOME SCRUBS N SUNS ONLY GIVEN UP BITCH ASS MARION

  • ICE CREAM MAN

    Why not try to get Oneal this year and still go after Artest and possible GHill. Then Hopefully and secretly Kobe will understand what’s going on and make a call or 100 to KG letting him know that he is still welcome after he opts out of where ever. So next year reads…

    C-Oneal,Mihm
    pf-KG
    f-Artest,hill
    sg-Kobe,hill
    g-farmar,rookie

    If not then we should still go after Oneal and trade Kobe for “?” This way the lakers would have a way better squad then what they had in the past 3 years.

  • ICE CREAM MAN

    One more thing, even if the Lakers go after these players and go over the salary tax, who cares. There gear and stuff they sell will make up for that and then some. Man why don’t god just shut all types of communications between everyone else and just let Lakers and Minny talk!!! Make like a General Manager’s wide black out. Hell, I’ll even drive up to Minny and personally deliver some popsicles to Mchale, I’ll even through in the one’s that look like a foot with a gumball on the toe. That should sweeten up the deal.

  • lakerfan81

    If your the suns why trade Amare to Atlanta when you hold their 2008 first round pick. With amare and Johnson they would easily be the favorites in the atlantic. I could even play in the atlantic they are that bad of a division. So unless PHX and Minnesota no something about Amares knees that no one else does this trade will not happen. trading for KG and losing amare does not make them that much better and I still think Spurs woul dbe the favorite team. Though if i’m atlanta I love this Idea.

  • k0be da 1 andonly

    ………………….SUNS ARE SO GREEDY. WHY IS IT FAIR THAT THE RICH GET RICHER. THEY ALREADY HAVE A GREAT TEAM THEY JUST GREEDY ASS BASTARDS, FUUUUUUUK!!!!!!!IT EATS ME UP; SUNS ARE NOW THE MOST DEFINATELY THE #1 HATED TEAM BY LAKER FANS
    !!!!!!!!!!!KG COME TO LA, SCREW THOSE FAGGETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rhom Dale

    lord have mercy. KG, steve “overated” nash, and amare “crybaby” stoudimire on the same team, is the LAST thing ANY team in the NBA wants. whatever it takes, DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN!!! i think its time for the lakers management to throw a hail mary. bynum, farmar, radmonovic, brown, 2007 draft pick for garnett, hudson.

  • Rhom Dale

    i know it wouldn’t be worth it in the long run, but for now and the next 2 or 3 years, it would definatly put us up there.

    PG – Mo Williams [sign], Troy Hudson, Sasha Vujacic
    SG – Kobe Bryant, Mo Evans
    SF – Lamar Odom, Luke Walton [re-sign]
    PF – Kevin Garnett, Brian Cook, Draft Pick
    C – Chris Mihm [re-sign], Ronnie Turiaf, Draft Pick

  • http://www.myspace.com/krzyjin krzyjin

    isn’t it theo ratliff? lol. and delonte west? wow. that’s so little that the wolves are getting. rofl. bynum and odom are much better than that offer. LAKERS NEED GARNETT.

  • laker4life23

    Send ODOM BYNUM to atlanta in exchange for No. 3 and No. 11 draft picks and a cap friendly contract, send No.3 and No. 11 kwame and cap friendly contract from ATL to Minny, and we get garnett. Perfect fucking trade, plz cupcake read wat i just wrote and get it done.

  • Newtdog

    For those of you dreaming that we will get o’neil, and artest and still keep lamar and kobe, It’s not impossible but improbable money wise. They will be so far over the cap it would be ridiculous. Oh and the dream of this team and then kg opting out next year and coming here….that is impossible. Not that everyone and there mom wouldn’t love to see that happen, but the money would be so astronomical….it’s not gonna happen. Don’t worry tho. The lakers will get a major trade. whether it be kg or o’neil, there gonna get one of them. And like i said before, we are just hearing RUMORS. Don’t worry, we do not know what’s really going on behind closed doors. For all we know, we could already have an agreement for KG, but they may have us draft a player for them, …..and we may not even hear about the trade for weeks. Noone knows anything. Just remember this. Don’t freak out. The suns are not gonna trade Amare- that would just be stupid. KG will not go to the suns. _peace

  • Lakerfanatic888

    Sorry guys, If plan A (getting Garnett) doesn’t go down we should trade Kobe instead. Either way, if we get Garnett, we’re still not sure if we can win the Championship coz we’re going to lose some of our key players. In other words we’re still in a rebuilding process, might as well rebuild now and trade Kobe to ATlanta for Joe Johnson and their #3 and #11 pick and some expiring contract if Atlanta will agree. Let’s build a great team instead of satisfying someone’s need. I’m no kobe hater, even if he play with Garnett here, there is no guarantee that we’ll win the championship. Just a thought, but i still like KG coming to Lakers! GO LAKERS!!!

  • Newtdog

    yeah, Kobe to Atlanta….good luck convicing him to go there.

  • k0be da 1 andonly

    WTF if Plan A doesnt work we go to PLAN B, get J ONEAL, and if plan B doesnt work, we dont trade KObe that would be the stupidest decision ever

  • kb24

    BREAKING NEWS ESPN SAID THAT THE SUNS WILL NOT PART WITH AMARE WICH MEANS THE SUNS DO NOT GET HIM. SINCE ITS OBVIOUS THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO GET GARNETT HE WILL STAY WITH THE WOLVES. WE CAN GET HIM AFTER HE OPTS OUT NEXT SEASON. WE CAN STILL GET JONEAL THO. WE CAN TRADE ODOM BROWN VLAD 48TH AND 19TH FOR JAMAL TINSLEY JONEAL AND MURPHY. NEXT WE TRADE (SIGN AND TRADE)LUKE BYNUM AND 40TH FOR ARTEST AND THERE PIC. THEN TRADE COOK AND VUJAJIC FOR HEAD AND WELLS. RESIGN MIHM. DRAFT AARON AFFLOLO. CHARLIE BELL WITH MLE.

    PG-JAMAL TINSLEY/ JORDAN FARMAR
    SG-KB24/ CHARLIE BELL
    SF-RON ARTEST/MO EVANS
    PF-TROY MURPHY/RONNY TURIAF
    C- JERMAINE ONEAL/CHRIS MIHM

  • lakerfan81

    Well Troy murphy is a horrible contract no way in hell would I take that contract on unless I was getting a 29 year old MJ or Magic (well that might be exa. Wells is staying with the rockets next season so trading for him is out. Aaron afflolo will not be a good NBA player. He’s not that good of a shooter and he’s not very athletic but for pick 48 your really not going to do much better. Jamaal tinsley is injured 75% of the time and he does not fit the triangle offense so why trade for him. Artest could not play with Kobe, you would have too extremely selfish players playing with each other. By the way I’d take artest in a fight anyday. If KG opted out, which is likel yor he will be traded before the trade deadline, why would he sign with the lakers when he could sign with PHX when they could offer him the same amount of money. A front court of Amare and KG would be unstoppable, just hand them the trophy already. But i do like your idea of getting rid of Vlade contract, though if you do I think an expiring contract would be best unless it was involved in a deal to match salaries.

    As far as a PG goes for LA… too bad Calderon really is not available or the lakers could make some kind of deal for him. Mo williams is probably looking for about 7-8 million which is past what we can offer but at this point I don’t know if he’s worth that much with the way the salary cap is set up players are going to start making a little less money.

  • kb24

    its a better lineup then last year

  • lakerfan81

    true.

  • http://getgarnett.com GOLAKERS75

    GET KG AND TRADE COOK FOR LUTHER HEAD
    CENTER- MIMH, MLE
    POWER FORWARDS- KG, TURIF
    SMALL FORWARDS- LUKE, MO EVENS
    SHOOTING GUARD- KOBE, SASHA
    POINT GUARDS- HEAD, FARMAR
    STILL FOUR SPOTS LEFT FOR SINGINGS AND DRAFT PICKS THIS TEAM IS A CONTENDER

  • kb24mvp

    KG goin to L.A. cuz amare aint goin nowhere and if they do get KG thats wack they dont have to give as much as we do

  • LAalltheway

    If ESPN says that the Suns won’t trade Amare, and I just read on ESPN.com that Ainge probably won’t trade the 5th pick (of course Marion said he wouldn’t go there anyway), doesn’t that make LA the most likely candidate? I think at this point that the wolves are more desperate for a trade than they’re letting on. Hopefully Mitch and Buss are talking to ATL right now, and if we have enough to get the 3rd pick out of them, don’t we at least have a chance? Does it seem to anyone else like everyone (including the media) are hating on the Lakers, willing the deal not to happen? It’s the ONLY deal that makes sense at this point, in my opinion. Of course, I’m a little biased. But everyone is so quick to say that we’re out of it. Fuck that shit. We still got a chance.
