mitchkupchak2_hlqnbpkf.jpgLakers 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.

    OH MY GOD!

    I don’t think the Lakers can offer a better deal than phase one.

    Well, do we know exactly what was offered?

  • Abel

    Finally, Mitch has said something encouraging to the fans. At least the first part was logical. If a deal did not take place then it did not happen. If the lakers are going to start phase two according to what he calls it, here is a ray of light. I am not sure what is he going to do, hopefully stubborn Mchale will come around.

  • http://Lakers.com Ed24

    Yes we know what was offered in phase one. It was Odom, Bynum, and a draft pick.

  • mitch_kupchak

    Trust me i just found a fourth team to complete the deal. its all about the faith…

    No that was not the offer!! The salaries don’t match up!!

  • http://ld2k.com LD2k

    - Mitch has been on the phone for 3 weeks except for draft night (after failed trade occurs)-(Jim Gray)
    – Reports say Sunday talks will open up for KG again
    – Mitch comfirms it

    I love the aggresiveness…

  • J-Cool

    Who Is It Mitch?

  • http://Lakers.com Ed24

    Yeah that is what was offered, click on PE.com at the beginning of this article and read what it says. it states clearly that Odom, Bynum and a draft pick was what was offered to the wolves for Garnett.

  • Laker4LIFE

    Thats there cap relief. Kwames contract is 9mil and expires next year. That gives the Wolves money to sign someone. With that money. What the wolves didnt like about the deal was Odom’s 2year contract thats why Lakers tried to get Boston involved and trade Odom and Bynum to Indiana and Boston was suppose to give up Al Jefferson to the Wolves in return for Oneal. Boston Didnt want to give him up and thats why were still here talking about this. So Mitch needs to find someone to take Odom and give the wolves a player or an expiring contract that the wolves want in addition to Bynum and the 19th pick, or Farmer. They have to sweeten the pot so to speak and make the wolves take the deall!!!!!!!!!! Come on Mitch be creative!!!!!!!

    Silo I Was Just Saying Who Is The Fourth Team That What I Mean But It Is A Stupid Question To Ask. But I Do Know Who Mitch Is.

  • sly

    Like every other laker fan i love the fact that were pursuing kg but we dont have all the time in the world come fall if we have not got someone major to supplement kb we will have a very upset kb, a) theres no way to get that star w/o dealing odom b) theres no way to get kg w/o dealing odom … hence if we keep waiting and never take the deal to land a kidd or jo were gonna be major screwed… and that would be mitch’s fault … we cant lay all our eggs in one basket

  • Laker4LIFE

    J-cool
    I think getting troy hudson would definalty be a good move you would need to give up another player or two to make the salaries work. I think the wolves would like to include hundson to get rid of his contract. Troys making 5.6 mil a year on a 4 year contract. Marco wouldnt be a bad move either. Macro is making about the same. So either or would be cool but to do both you would have to come up with 10 mil in salaries to match. Might be difficult.

    oh my bad dawg. so uh . . . whats to eat?

  • ray

    i think if the trade goes though, we’d be giving up either farmar or javaris in the deal as well. who do you think would be better for us to keep?

  • J-Cool

    I Think Javaris Would Be Better For Us To Keep Because He Ran The Triangle Offense In High School. That Why We Drafted Another PG.

  • Laker4LIFE

    Who cares who is better your getting KG!!!!!!!!!1

  • SILO

    i dont know. i really like farmar. i would rather trade javaris since hes new.

  • Laker4LIFE

    Who ever the wolves want. If they want Farmer serve him up on a Silver plater its not like hes Jason kIDD!!!!!!!!
    Dont get me wrong I like the kid he has talent and he will be a good player. But if he is standing in the way of us getting KG, run his ass over!!!!!!

    they both know the triangle….but at least we know what we have in farmar. javaris is bigger, right?

    Thank Ray For That But I Still Think Farmar Is The Odd Man Out Also Because They Will Be Signing A Veteran PG. The Wolves Want Youth In Their Team So Bynum, Odom, And Farmar Will Be Gone.

    I’d take either Javaris our Farmar at this point. Javaris has more potential, but I’d have to see if he can match Farmar’s intensity before I could decide on him.

  • Laker4LIFE

    We dont need a great passing point. All you need is KG and kobe everyone else just needs to defend well. The Point needs to be a good defender not a good passer. If you watch laker games. The only reason we lose is because we cant keep anyone under 100 points. We score enough points even with the scrubs on this current roster. What we need is to be able to stop other teams from scoring if we can do that Kobe and KG will take care of the points. Quote me on that!!!!!!!!!!

  • ray

    its not so much that other teams don’t want kg and kobe together, its just that they don’t want to help the lakers, no matter what players are involved. every team, and their fans all HATE los angeles and the lakers. however, we still sell out THEIR arenas when we play there. year after year! and the nba would LOVE to have garnett here because of all the added ratings. everyone hates us, but they love watching us!!!

    I totally agree with you. When I say they don’t want to see KG and KB together, that’s exactly what I mean. They hate the Lakers, and they know how devastating that combo would be.

  • ray

    you’re exactly right, ‘LAKER4LIFE’. being a passing point guard isn’t necessary…..look at tony parker! he’s no where near being a steve nash type

  • rmeazy82

    Who is this guy? Did Kupcheck fall and hit his head or something? I hope he makes it happen.

  • Laker4LIFE

    I agree. He would bring a face to the organization, Good Values, Loyalty that is rare now days. He is a true warrior and deserve a chance to play for the best team in the NBA, the LAKERS. He represent everything that I love about this game. What passion, What Desire, What Determination. What a leader. What a Player. KG AND KOBE= Championship!!!!!!! “Build it and they will come!!!”

    I’m not sure I completely agree with you guys. I agree that whatever point guard we take needs to have good defense, but imagine a point that could create for Kobe and KG. That would be nasty. And I know you were just making an example, but Tony Parker is valuable for his scoring more than his D.

  • steve

    I think jarvis would be better against guards in the west ……parker,nash,williams,paul,terry,jack…..he would be a handfull for the smaller guards and he is quick….farmar seems a little small although he has a vertical leap just over 40 inches….i think the reason we went after another guard is because teams probably asked for farmar when they had trade talks with other teams…….btw….for kobe to be this quiet something has to be going on..

  • ray

    i meant tht parker is not a passing point guard

  • Laker4LIFE

    Champoinships are won with D. not O. We have the best Closer in the Game “KB” You need stops. Look at the Spurs. They score 80 points and still win!!!!!!!! Im not saying a point that could score wouldnt help of course it helps but its not as important as D. Thats what kills us. We can stop the guards going down the middle. We stop that and we keep our big men in the game, keep them out of foul trouble. This allows us to stay big and rebound. One and out.

  • ray

    you’re right. kg is good for at least 12-14 boards a night. imagine if we could keep odom!!

    Cant need to trade his salary. KG makes to much money. I would love to keep LO but theres no possible way.

    You’re right. I’m just saying that it’s not as clear cut as you’re trying to make it sound. Phil and Mitch keep saying we still need a “good ball handling point guard”, not a defensive point guard. Defense wins games, but the Spurs that you mentioned are great because of TEAM defense. Like I said, Tony Parker doesn’t have great D. If we had a defensive point guard who couldn’t pass, we wouldn’t be filling all of our needs.

  • Laker4LIFE

    True We cant fill all our needs. Except it. You fill in gaps with hussle hardwork and determination. Let the stars pick up the slack and let the role players do there jobs. You said it yourself its team defense. Im not saying you need an absolute defensive wizard at point, just someone that will work there ass off like D fish did when he was here. He wasnt the most talented point, but he left it all on the floor every night thats the type or player we need!!!! A bit more athletic would be nice too.

  • Nikko

    Say we did get KG. What’s the future plans? Is he content to sign an extension?

  • Laker4LIFE

    Thats part of the deal any team that trades for him he is asking for the extension as part of the deal.

    Well, teh spurs play great team d.

    And remember the triangle doesnt need a real point guard.

    might i remind you that we won a ring as ron harper as our point guard.

  • LAalltheway

    I can ACCEPT that. You first said that we need a point guard who can defend, and not necessarily pass. I agreed, and added that well, ball handling is important too. You say that others can pick up slack for lack of handling skills, but it also goes for defense. If we have a sick ball handler with average D, the TEAM defense can still get it done. I was never disagreeing with you on the defensive theme. You just kept going in circles.

    we dont need a passing point guard. Derek Fisher nor Lindsey Hunter were passing point guards. They were shooters. Besides in the triangle the ball is constantly moving. if the ball is in one players hands for more teh 4seconds then he is holding the ball to long.

    Well, pj isnt really high on small point guards. If he was then Tyron Lue would still be here.

    I like boykins though, get runner, breaks down d with hsi great handles, and can shoot the outside shot.

    Mo williams, is teh most realistic choice, good size, great shooter, he can bring the ball up court and set the offense like kobe and lo do it.

  • LAalltheway

    How many times did Odom have to run point/forward, just because our PG’s were unreliable? And I consider Fish and Hunter to be very good defenders and ball handlers. I think Fish could get it done for us, if we have KG and a few solid players. I’m just saying that defense is not all we lack at point guard.

  • Laker4LIFE

    The Bucks are willing to re-sign Williams at $7 to $8 million per year, but the point guard’s looking for a starting number around $9 to $10 million, the New York Daily News reports. (Jun 24)

    give me something real not fantasy

  • LAalltheway

    Many think that Paploukas would be a good fit. Do we want him more for his D, or his handles? I was just adding some perspective, and then you took it as a direct offense to your knowledge. It wasn’t my intention to sit here and argue in circles.

  • Laker4LIFE

    Paploukas would be a pretty good fit he defends well or so it has been rumored and he killed the usa team. Just ask Elton B.

    Mo would be good I just dont think he would take a pay cut to come play for the lakers. Thats is unless he wants to play with KG and KB baddly enought to take a pay cut. But considering he hasnt really gotten paid big time yet Im sure he is looking for the $$$$$$$.

    Is KG at or past his prime? Is he really worth $29 million including $6.5 million trade kicker?

    It seems KG has struggled in the playoffs, actually I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen KG in the playoffs, was it 5 years ago.

    I know that the likes of Nash, Melo, Dirk, and Vince Carter all continuously choke in the playoffs, but KG, what has he done in the playoffs (I UNDERSTAND HE IS A GREAT REGULAR SEASON GUY, but we in lakerland DON’T CARE ABOUT THE REGULAR SEASON, we care about the playoffs)??????????????

    KG and playoffs, does it add up or NOT???

    Oh yeah, the lakers still have Batman (Kobe) to rescue Robin (KG) deep into the playoffs, ahhahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!

    Last week the Wolves shut us down. Plain and simple, they do not like our package. And guess what? Not much has changed since last week. I can only hope that Lakers management wises up and does a different trade scenario for a different Big guy who will actually say that he wants to come here. If the Lakers miss out, and do nothing this summer waiting for Mitch’s magic wand to bring about KG then I will have completely lost faith in this FO. There are deals already on the table that can help the Lakers. We know well what they are – they are the only two deals that have been reported as being real this summer. If we don’t do them, and we don’t do anything else we will basically be beyond any hope. I don’t even need to discuss how pissed a certain player who is the face of the franchise will be. Mitch needs to put down the KG pipe before he hurts himself. He does not have the tools or the parts to put this trade together.

    Unfortunately, mitch and the buss family (all of them) are all smoking the KG pipe and screwing around with 23 year old PROS, if you know what I mean. I bet you right now Jerry buss is with a PRO, and smoking that KG pipe dream!!!!!

    Stage one: get the young guns, the newbies, Stage two: get the veterans/resign and collect, Stage three: trade for the best deal you can get. Stage four: accept applications for championship team!!!

    Laker fans, KG will not come to the Lakers. Listen to this, the lakers just signed Coby Karl (son of George Karl, Nuggets coach) to a free agent contract.

    Now that is a mistake waiting to happen. As soon as cancer Coby Karl gets lonely, he will call his father and give away all of the Lakers secrets, and the Nuggets will end up beating the Lakers in the regular season or the playoffs. The Lakers front office are the most stupid idiots (I agree Kobe) in the NBA. Hire George Karl’s little spy, his son, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.

    And you KG fans think KG is coming to the lakers, not with this lakers front office, wishful thinking, PAY ATTENTION, they are idiots (and Kobe said it)!!!!!
