Here is the latest rumors involving the Lakers, Bulls and Blazers…

Yahoo! Sports: The Portland Trail Blazers were telling teams over the weekend they had a chance to acquire Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic and wondered whether teams might have an interest in obtaining him. This prompted several executives to suggest the Blazers were working on a three-team trade, including one Eastern Conference general manager who had been told the elements of the package included Thomas and Vujacic to Portland, the Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich to Los Angeles and the Lakers’ Adam Morrison, another expiring deal and a first-round pick to the Bulls.

“What has, or will kill this,” one GM said, “is that Portland just won’t take Vujacic on.” The Lakers guard is owed $5.5 million next season.

More so, here is a secondary source breaking it down even further:

ESPN: The word out of the All-Star Game late Sunday had the Lakers recruiting the Portland Trail Blazers as a third team in trade talks with the Bulls. According to one source familiar with the discussions, the Lakers would get Hinrich, the Bulls would get Adam Morrison, Steve Blake, Travis Outlaw and Juwan Howard and the Blazers would land Tyrus Thomas and Sasha Vujacic. Such a deal would lessen the amount of money the Lakers would be adding to their payroll next season.

    yea i knew that already lmao..wen i posted the trade they talkin bout yesterday i knew da thing holdin it up as sasha damn it mna…

  • lakers0828

    well I hope it happens

  • Xtro

    Do it Mitch!!!

  • Chris Manning

    We’ll see. 3-way deals are always complicated. Either way, should be interesting to see how this all shakes out.

  • Robert

    Sounds good! We might need one ‘tweak’ like this. The Cavs are getting ready to tool up to be able to take on the Lakers in the Finals. Hinrich would work out well with the Lakers.

    Throw in the packet of gum Mitch!

  • KOBE_24

    hope fully it goes down

  • Matthew

    what happens with farmar then? less playing time perhaps.

    • keepon_keepinon18

      Jordan is playing better too… I’d rather trade for an agile SF with an outside shot.

  • Arturo

    PULL THE TRIGGER ON THIS!!!! We loose NOTHING!! I mean AMMO hasnt done much this season, he is barely part of the rotation. Ship him OUT!!

  • LakeShowAllDay

    Make it Happen Mitch

  • mr.laker19

    DO THIS NOW!!!!

  • James

    Kirk Hinrich seems like the ideal, realistic, and most probable target.

    But he could be a decoy for Mitch Kupchak’s real target.

    And even both the Hinrich and Prince situation could be a smokescreen for a different epic Mitch Kupchak deal. Remember, the Ariza trade, the Gasol trade, and the Ammo/Brown trade all occurred without any rumors or media coverage.

  • highflyer

    y wud blazers give up jwan howard.. their only big man.. outlaw and blake. jus for thomas n vuja? sounds out of proportion

    • lakeshow008

      theyve been pondering dealing blake all season, juwans on his last legs and wont have a future there once joel and oden come back and tyrus is better than outaw. Thats why

    • keepon_keepinon18

      Yeah that sounds fishy, Oden and Joel are out for the season and they are still Playoff contenders… so whats the deal??


    Lets get this shit done…any laker fan that has been watching laker game know we need help on the guard hinrich almost punch rondo..he got a little thug in him which we need

  • TheLAKERSwon09

    If we can get this deal done we will be the best yet again. It will help us in the future.

  • Laura

    trading Sasha is a mistake…we all know what he can do…Lakers shouldn’t trade him…morrison okay but not Sasha =[

    • lakeshow008

      We all know what he CAN do buts he doesnt do it. Plus we all know what FISHER cant do is more important. Plus sasha is OVERPAID and doesnt have much of a role on this team anymore

    • chadb

      laura – sasha is horrible, he had one decent year and after his contract expires he probably won’t be in the NBA. And besides do you want a guy on the Lakers that is prettier then YOU. (at least he thinks he’s prettier then you)

    • LAKESHOW420

      im sorry but sasha does more to hurt the lakers than any good, he commits stupid unnecessary fouls, misses all of his shots, blows defensive assignments, heinrich plays great D and nails shots. And most importantly has a nice beef with rondo from last years playoffs and we all hate rondo and the celdick s

    • lakerfan_4ever

      Girl,I totally understand your crush for the Machine but we are talking about making our team STRONGER and win another championship.Check out the next vid of Hinrich and just imagine him doing that for the purple and gold…

      If I was Vujacic I will definitely take a look at you,you look hot in that pic…lol


    ENOUGH with the rumors this is so tiring and annoying. If it hasn’t happened then don’t report it all it is is more speculation. Mitch could easily pull a derek fisher-ammo for hinrich but loyalties apparently are more important than championships. If cleveland is willing to part with z and resign him later why cant the lakers do the same with derek considering other teams are reluctant in taking on vujacic.

    • LakersFirst

      Uhhh, apparently you don’t realize that Derek Fisher is a MAJOR contributor to the Lakers winning championships. He is a veteran leader out there on the court and he definitely contributed to the Lakers 4 titles they won over the past 10 years. If you haven’t seen this, then I don’t know what Laker team you have been watching.

      With regards to your second comment about Cleveland willing to part with Z and resign him later, you do realize that Z would have to be waived by the team they traded to him and then could not resign with Cleveland until 30 days after the team waived him. Say the Lakers do trade Fisher/Ammo, Chicago would have to voluntarily waive Fisher – THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THIS WOULD HAPPEN. You can’t trade someone as valuable to the team as Fisher with the hopes that he will be waived by the other team. That risk makes no sense!

      You need to learn about how the NBA works my friend.

      • nba10

        nobody said anything about fisher not being a contributor over the past 10 years. Im looking towards the future; next season fisher may not even resign why cant you guys accept the fact that hes been a great player throughout his career but doesnt have MUCH left to offer. We cant keep relying on the past and HOPE that hell continue making clutch shots as we all know not all of them go in. Of course you have to wait 30 days; i know that my friend you dont need to tell me that, but if its a championship you take that risk. It was only a thought. Let me make a proposal, if someone said you could have devin harris for fishers expiring contract and you’re looking towards next season and to improve the team, would you not do it?

  • drive-for-16th

    screw the rumors, if it happens it happens, we’ll just see on the deadline.

  • LALakersfan622

    i like this trade alot hopefully it happens! id be glad to get rid of morrison and sasha.. its really the best people to give up if we had to!

  • keepon_keepinon18

    If it happens, great. But thats all it will be.

  • Mr Terrific

    I’m be so happy when ALAMO and The Washing Machine are gone!

  • Luke makes me Puke

    As long as we are getting gib of our garbage, let’s see if we can get Luke included somehow as well!

  • nba10

    Boston wants to beat us to the punch. It had to be them. FUNNY though how pathetic and desperate are they; the lakers want hinrich as a complimentary piece and boston hopes hell bring them over the top. HAH keep dreaming losers in green

  • http://57.amklac Charles Barkley

    if he wants to win a ring, he can get in line for CLEVELAND AND WITNESS THE GREATNESS.

    • http://lakersnation showtime4eva

      you and cleveland can keep dreaming about the ring both of you dont have!!!! greatness is in l.a. with our 15 rings!!! watchu know bout that?here have another do-nut while you watch that clown dance like a fool! go-lakers!

  • http://57.amklac Charles Barkley


    • lakers2000

      I’ve been and will continue to be a witness to his inflated reputation along with his inflated head. All hail the donut queen! LOL

      • lakers2000

        P.S. I’m glad that even you admit he is only beginning to FAIL!

  • onlyone laker fan in L.A.

    Sasha ,Luke Ammo Mobenga Farmar trade any of them if need be for a quality Pguard.
    Luke is hurt again give the money back Luke .
    Sasha is so bad nobody will take him,How we got stuck with this euro bum is crazy.
    Ammo is useless even when he is wide open he cant knock down shots.
    Mobenga is useless should not even be in the NBA.
    Farmar is respectfully getting better .Playing great.

  • KindSir

    The Cavs seem nearly a lock to get Amare Stoudemire, and they’re already an awesome team. We also need to make a move to improve a bit in order to keep pace. I really hope this trade gets done…

  • lakerfan_4ever

    Man I will go crazy if this trade happens,Hinrich is an amazing all around player: he can go left or right,goes deep under the basket for layups,great passing skills,decent 3 point shot,splits double defense,knows how to knock a shot coming off a screen,his speed is amazing,he can post up and he is a tough cat on defense(ask Rondo or Pierce)…jeez I will trade the whole bench mob(except Odom and Brown), even throw my wife in the mix(trust me, they will waive her in less than a just to make this TRADE HAPPEN.Please Mr. Buss just DO IT….
