Radmanovic suggested trade out of L.A.

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.

    Freakin Space Cadet. Good riddance, I’m glad we don’t have to deal with his inconsistent shooting and horrible defensive abilities. He’s nothing but target practice for all the other SF’s in the league. Bye bye Marvin the Martian. LOL.

    The guy was garbage any way, he should fit right in with the rest of the trash that is the bobcats. adesnt in defense, in stamina, in offense, in agility, in ball handling and absent in mind. no dedication, no determination just a more retarded version of big baby davis minus the tears. good riddens and rot in hell you pathetic excuse for an nba player!
