Marc Stien from ESPN this morning –

ali LA: What are the chances the Lakers can get Jermaine without giving up Lamar? Thanks

SportsNation Marc Stein: (11:10 AM ET ) I still hear that the chances are nil unless the Lakers are willing to part with Odom AND Bynum. They are not and Indy says they are unwilling to take anything less.

mike(newjersey): Which scenario has a better chance of happening? Jermaine O’Neal to the Lakers or Jermaine O’Neal to the Nets?

SportsNation Marc Stein: (11:36 AM ET ) We have to add a scenario to your list. The scenario where JO starts the season in Indy, which appears to be leading the race at the minute.

Majeed: Isn’t a package that includes Bynum and Farmar and spare parts for JO equal to what Minny got in Jefferson, Green, and change?

SportsNation Marc Stein: (11:49 AM ET ) Perhaps. But Indy obviously doesn’t feel as desperate to move Jermaine as Minnesota was with KG. The Wolves, remember, should have traded KG at least a year ago. The Pacers’ path forward isn’t as clear cut.

    Wow, so JO may be out.

    I can’t believe that JO’s “willing” to stay. I mean how many no playoff years can he stand? He needs to get on Larry Brown and make sure LO stays.

    Faith,

    I think JO will move over to the Lakers eventually.LOL. Just listen to what JO had to say on that Sunday in LA. He changed his mind overnight because he was told he would get his way if he shuts up and let the GMs do their work. It may take a while but JO will be traded and the only realistic destination is LA Lakers. LOL
