Lakers were right there for KG. Now begins “Phase Two” as Mitch explains it. I like the sound of it, Lakers are after KG and we seem very aggresive. Go “Get Garnett” Mitch!
PE.com: Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said he “thought we got close” to making something happen.
“But until you have a deal that’s approved, you don’t have a deal,” he said Thursday. “At times we thought we were pretty close here in the last couple of weeks. But here it is draft day, and the deal that we hoped we could get done, we did not get done. But it’s just Phase One. We start again tomorrow and work through the summer.“
