Lakers offering Steve Blake, Chris Duhon, Devin Ebanks, Darius Morris for 2nd-rounders, sources say. Looking to unload, free roster spots.

Free roster spots, for who? Oh, my...LeBron of course.

This is a Salary Dump.


While the Lakers are unlikely to make a major move today, the team is exploring smaller moves, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Wojnarowski tweets that the Lakers are offering Steve Blake, Chris Duhon, Devin Ebanks, and Darius Morris in search of second-round picks.


Given Blake's undesirable contract, which pays him $4MM this year and next, it's unlikely that the Lakers will be able to move him without giving up a pick of their own. I'd also be surprised if L.A. could land a second-rounder for Duhon. Ebanks and Morris could draw some interest though, as both players are young and on minimum-salary contracts.


If the Lakers were to move one or two players for picks, it would give the team the opportunity for a late-season free agent addition with the free roster spot(s). Alternately, it could simply allow the team to reduce its luxury-tax bill a little.

C'mon Mitch, be a little more ambitious than trying to unload some of the min guys.
Why not call up the Knicks and see if they'd take Pau for Amaré and Shump?

probably because Amare has the worst contract in the league, thoughts?

You're right. Amar'e isn't worth it. That extra year (compared to Pau) is the deal-breaker.

I just think that when Mitch and Co. are going all-in with Howard this summer, we might as well do it right. Trade Pau for a couple of guys who could help us the rest of the way this season and then hope a trip to the playoffs could persuade Howard to stay.

How about this one: Pau for Ariza and Okafor? Peckovic and Derrick Williams? Kirk Hinrich and Boozer?

It's so obvious. He's talking about Derek fisher.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Fisher could settle this team down. I also think he could bridge the gap between Kobe and Dwight.

If they are moving one of the many PGs we have to bring in D-Fish, I'm cool with that.


And Pau? Still praying for a miracle there...and not a medical miracle...something more along the lines of getting rid of him for Brandon Bass, Carl Landry or any REAL bench front court help...

D-Fish was the first name to pop into my mind too. Can he still play though? If he can and they somehow managed to trade Blake for draft pick(s) that would be awesome, because it sheds his salary and the upcoming free agent pool is deeeeep at pg and sf, the 2 positions we need the most.

As for DJ Augustin (which is just pure speculation)...not sure about him. He's young and quick and a good passer, mediocre shooter, bad defender. He'd probably be an upgrade though because young and quick is better than old and slow, and its not like any of our pg can play a lick of defense anyway.

Scratch that ^ Don't want him. Keep Blake.

The trade deadline is up and Mitch has done nothing to improve our 26-29 team.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

At least, he could have signed some interesting FAs such as Kenyon Martin or Delonte West...

If Jazz decide to buyout Raja Bell, the Lakers will try to sign the veteran guard. Bell is working out in Fort Lauderdale and wants to play.

He can't do that without trading for a roster spot.

Don't we have a roster spot after waiving DJO?
