Here is some more information on the Radman trade…
Fox Sports: Vladimir Radmanovic could put up with being called a “space cadet” and “my favorite martian” by Lakers coach Phil Jackson. But when Jackson stopped playing Radmanovic, the versatile forward suggested it was time to leave Los Angeles.
As Radmanovic prepared to pull on a Charlotte Bobcats jersey for the first time Monday, Radmanovic acknowledged he had asked for a trade.
“I said if there was something to be done, I was open for it,” Radmanovic said.
The odd Radmanovic-Jackson marriage was broken up Saturday when the Lakers sent the 6-foot-10 Serbian to the Bobcats for underachieving forward Adam Morrison and reserve guard Shannon Brown.
The deal came as Radmanovic’s playing time plummeted. After beginning the season as a starter, Radmanovic find himself behind Luke Walton and Trevor Ariza at small forward. When center Andrew Bynum was injured, Lamar Odom moved into the starting lineup and Radmanovic fell even further in the rotation.
Radmanovic didn’t play more than 14 minutes in any of his final six games as a Laker and totaled five points in his final four games.
