HOOPSWORLD.COM: LA can also wait to package Farmar in a bigger scale trade to bring All-Star level talent like Kevin Garnett or Jermaine O’Neal. Of course both presently seem like dead ends.
The Indiana Pacers appear to be focused on center Andrew Bynum (who has impressed the Lakers this summer with his offseason dedication). In addition, the Pacers are adamant they get Lamar Odom as well for O’Neal.
Garnett is the big fish that many fans “expect” the Lakers to land. Never mind that the Minnesota Timberwolves are contemplating keeping Garnett beyond the summer.
Recently team owner Glen Taylor told the Star Tribune that he didn’t think a Garnett trade would happen, “Are we willing to live with what we have, with Kevin and making some minor changes? Yes. But if a team came along, if we saw the right thing and it made sense? Maybe. But I don’t see it.”
A deal that would likely be very interesting to the Wolves would include Jordan Farmar, Andrew Bynum and Joakim Noah (along with expiring contracts).
