L.A. Times: Question: What is the likelihood that the Lakers finish the season with all three centers? Will one of them be packaged in a trade to try and get Kobe some help?
– Tim Creef, Gaithersburg, Md.
Answer: First and foremost, Andrew Bynum will not be traded . . . at all.
Second and secondmost (it’s OK to make up words sometimes, no?), Chris Mihm is still trying to catch up to the game after a year away from it.
Then you get to Kwame Brown.
He is in the last year of a three-year contract that pays him $9.1 million this season.
Phil Jackson loves his defense in the post, but other teams might love the fact he has an expiring contract that will be off the books after the season. Not to mention that the Lakers will have paid two-thirds of that $9.1 million by the time the Feb. 21 trade deadline rolls around.
In other words, of the three, my money would be on Kwame getting sent somewhere else.
