It's not like we are going to miss Vlads production.

But if Morrison can get his shooting groove going then there is tremendous upside. If not we're not losing much.

I think Morrison is a restricted FA in summer of 2009.

and I think Shannon Browns is the same?...

i hope now we can trade morrison and luke for someone that can play the SF


yeah we sure seem to be piling up a lot of unathletic "high IQ" guys

kind of annoying

we traded an athlete who could shoot for a non athlete who can shoot

interesting

They aren't the only one.


I first created this thread when ESPN sent me a text message.

I changed it to yahoo article when woswill provided a yahoo link.

then its settled cap relief

so i guess its safe to say do not expect morrison to be a laker next season

but wait if adam is and expiring this year

maybe we are piling up one huge expiring contract for a trade

i mean we are close to what 20 million in expirings now

I'm definitely gonna miss Vlad, but we actually got the better end of this deal.

If we had traded Vlad for Morrison straight up (I know it wasn't possible, just sayin) we would've got the short end of the straw. No homo. And that's simply because even tho Vlad was never a good defender, his size and strength gave him at least the tools to do a respectable job sometimes; Morrison is just a skinny dude who can shoot. But the catch is that we get Brown.

So when you balance it out like that, this is actually a good trade for us.

Only problem is that now we might have even more depth issues.

How will Morrison find playing time behind Luke, Sasha, Ariza, and Kobe?

How will Brown find playing time behind Luke, Sasha, Ariza, Kobe, AND Morrison?

Brown is too good of a defender for us to just leave him on the sideline playing Sun Yue type minutes.

I feel bad for Vlady...going from a contender to a place like Charlotte.

He is a good guy a good guy and I am going to miss him.

That being said, I hope Morrison can live up to his potential under Phil. I also really liked Shannon Brown coming out of college. He's super athletic.

What are you guys talking about?

This is a great trade for our team. We don't even use Vlad and he has a horrible contract. We get rid of his horrible contract and now we have the chance to re-sign Odom and Ariza this summer.

Too bad we didn't make this trade last week or something.

I would've LOOOOOOOOVED to see Phil put Brown on LeBron tomorrow.
