Today is the day. Taylor makes his desicion before leaving on his honeymoon with his wife. If we are going to “Get Garnett,” now is the time.
L.A. Times: Trade talks continued Monday between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Lakers after a four-team proposal that would have sent All-Star forward Kevin Garnett to the Lakers collapsed.
Minnesota owner Glen Taylor was expected to be in the Timberwolves’ offices this morning before departing for a honeymoon in China. His appearance at team headquarters suggested a quick resolution on the Lakers’ proposal, which includes forward Lamar Odom and center Andrew Bynum.
However, sources said that Kevin McHale, the Timberwolves’ vice president of basketball operations, wasn’t keen on the Lakers’ offer.
Another topsy-turvy day, a phrase used often to describe daily happenings during the Lakers’ off-season, began Monday with prospects of a four-team trade and ended with the Lakers and Timberwolves still having the same rosters.
