ESPN: Wolves contact Bobcats to reshape Garnett trade talks

amare ftd?This is interesting. Wolves are looking into the Bobcats #8 and an undisclosed player. Remeber a few days ago when the Bobcats would be “willing” to be the third team in a KG trade? Makes me wonder – will they help Phx? Lakers? They’re going to help someone from the sounds of it.

ESPN: The Minnesota Timberwolves’ attempts to trade Kevin Garnett continued Thursday afternoon.

The Wolves have contacted the Charlotte Bobcats to try to help facilitate a deal for Garnett, one day after a potential three-way deal with the Phoenix Suns and the Atlanta Hawks hit a roadblock.

According to sources, the Wolves are asking the Bobcats to give up the No. 8 pick along with an undisclosed player. In the proposed deal, Garnett would go to Phoenix, and the Suns would send Amare Stoudemire to Charlotte. The Bobcats would also be required to take Suns guard Marcus Banks.

The Bobcats have been offering the No. 8 pick to various teams for weeks and have several offers. If they can’t get something worked out with Minnesota and Phoenix before the draft, the Bobcats will likely move the pick in another deal, a source said.

    Just to let you guys know…

    Jalen Rose on ESPN radio said He believes KG will stay In minnesota but if Kg were to be dealt that he thinks He will go to LA….Also he said if he was KG he would demand to go to LA because he could play with KB24 & be coached by Phil Jackson!

    i thought they said that the bobcats were willing to help PNX as said on ESPN

    But PNX doesnt need Amare they already have Okafor and May

    HELP THE LAKESHOW!!

    Phoenix is not trading Amare.

  • LaKeRkB

    i agree i reallyy believe it is gonna happen

  • LAalltheway

    The Suns won’t trade Amare. I thought that was settled already. Hopefully we have enough for the Bobcats, and it seemed like they were hinting that we did, when they said they wouldn’t mind being the mediator. Sounds like the Wolves are trying one last time to make the deal to Phx work, whether it’s because they don’t want us to have KG, or KG requested the Suns. I think we still have a good chance.

    thats sad jalen rose is on the phenoix suns and hes even saying let kg go to the lakers. com on kg demand a trade.

    can anyone get kgs number i’ll call and tell him to demand if kobe dosent.

  • LAalltheway

    I get the feeling that Taylor will go through with a trade to LA, and Mchale is trying to find any other possible deal that the Bobcats might take.

    If the deal falls through or KG ends up in Phoenix, then so be it. There will be nothing we can really do. BUT I better hear that the Lakers were willing to move everyone not named Kobe to get this to work. The Suns were working non stop and tried to get like 4 different teams to help them get KG. After one fell through, they tried another. After that didn’t work, you heard another team. Now how bout the Lakers? After the Odom/Bynum/19th fell through, I heard nothing. (Take that back. Actually I did. I heard that Mitch was telling all the GMs we didn’t have enough to get KG) Maybe they were working and not letting the media know. All I know is that at the end of the day I BETTER hear that the Lakers tried more avenues than the 4 team deal with Indy and the straight up trade with Minny. If not, than that tells me the Lakers gave up!

  • kb24

    lamar kwame and 19th to pacers and jo to bobcats and bynum and 8th to minny and kg and hudson to lakers!!

    KG to Lakers or nothing.Because Suns don’t want to let go of Amare and Marion doesn’t seem to want to go.So Mitch this is your time to bring KG!!!

  • Rpoc

    My fury for the Suns grows each passing day.

  • Mr RiCo

    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! :)
