Bring It!Well in a day where Lakers fans went into depression, Phx. fans sang “what the hell,” and Minny fans scratched their head, Chad Ford has just posted the latest about the entire KG situation:

The Minnesota Timberwolves’ attempts to get a great deal for Kevin Garnett hit a major roadblock on Wednesday afternoon, sources told ESPN.com.

According to multiple sources, the Timberwolves have been talking to multiple teams about finding a third team to help facilitate a Garnett trade.

As ESPN.com reported on Tuesday evening, Minnesota was looking to acquire Atlanta’s No. 3 and No. 11 picks in the draft along with several cap-friendly contracts from the Hawks and Phoenix Suns. To participate, Atlanta wanted Amare Stoudemire from Phoenix.

On Wednesday, sources say one of the Hawks owners vetoed a hypothetical deal for Stoudemire.

The Suns claim to have never had any direct contact with the Hawks about a deal. While they have shown strong interest in acquiring Garnett, the deal never reached a stage where they were asked by either team to give up Stoudemire and never offered him in a trade.

While teams like the Lakers and Suns will continue to pursue Garnett, and the Wolves seem intent on trading him, sources say that it’s unlikely a deal goes down by the time of the draft.

    Lakers might never get KG…

  • nate

    what if the Lakers could get Artest and both Gasol AND JO. add Kobe and an MLE PG and you got yourself a championship team for the next couple of years

  • LAalltheway

    The Lakers barely seem to have enough to get JO alone…I don’t see how they could land Gasol as well. I hope we get Artest, but does anyone know if he and JO are cool? Lets not forget the fight in Detroit, and the turmoil of that Pacers team at the time.

  • Mr RiCo

    Getting JO will ruin the Lakers! If you don’t understand why, you NEED TO listen to this:

    So is everyone tired of all these bull**** rumors. Deals that nobody with half a brain would make. Its all for NBA publisity. I think the Lakers already have the deal made for KG. Nobody else wants to take on the luxury tax or the KG contract extension except for the Lakers. Phoenix doesnt want to pay the luxury tax. Thats why they want to get rid of Marion. Why would they want to be even more over the cap. One more thing if Phoenix was going to give up Stodamire why wouldnt Mini just swap KG for Him. He is better than the 3 and 11th pick in the draft that Alanta was supposedly offering. All these rumors are fantasy. Lakers will have KG soon!!!!!!!!!!! Thats the only one that works. Mini is gonna have to take what we got or lose KG for nothing. Oh one last thought if Kevin Mcchale does like Odom he can trun around and trade him to another team. KG still comes here. Lakers rule!!!!!!!

  • LAalltheway

    Interesting, Rico. I didn’t know that JO’s numbers were so low against the stronger PFs of the west. That radio host is a fuckin douchebag though, isn’t he? But he makes a good point. Maybe we should go for Zach Randolph. I love that guy.

    i dont care if KG gets traded before the draft.i just want to see him in a laker jersey

    I don’t know if he will be available then, but maybe. I’m also not sold on him being a NBA PG. I think he is more of an off the bench guy at best. But at 19 It might be good. I’d say stuckey or nick young if either are available. If neither of those two are available why not take a big gamble and take sean williams. I know he has baggage but he is easily lottery pick talent and if no one else takes the gamble before that I say it might be worth it. hes the best shot blocker in the draft. He might also be a good trading commodity.

  • kisofdeath

    ^^^nick young wont be available but stuckey might…the thing is those guys are more of 2 guards and what we need is a point…

    True, but I don’t think you are going to get a PG at the 19 pick that can contribute. Also you do not need a true PG in the triangle. Stuckey can handle the ball well enough to bring it up the court and he can shoot, that is all you really need in a wing player in the triangle. I said Nick young if he falls just because if he did fall he’d be the best talent at that point. However, it doesn’t seem likely at this point that we will have that pick.
