Walker to LA? Maybe…

Will Staples Center start doing the ‘shimmy’ soon?

It could happen. Anotine Walker, who was just recently traded to the Minnisota Timberwolves, is rumored to be bought out by his new team. Who is the rumored team that is just crazy enough to want him? Yeah, we are.

There’s some talk flying around that the Lakers would be interested in acquiring the aging forward is the Wolves were to buy him out. I know we need all the help we can get… but say it ain’t so!

On October 24, 2007, he was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves along with teammates Michael Doleac and Wayne Simien and a first-round draft pick for the Timberwolves’ Ricky Davis and Mark Blount.

Realted:
Oh yes, its shimmy time!

    OH GOD NO! YOU CANT BE SERIOUS. DUDE ISNT EVEN SMART ENOUGH TO LEARN THE TRIANGLE, LET ALONE KNOW WHAT A TRIANGLE IS.

    EXCUSE MY LANGUAGE BUT WE’RE ******IF WE SIGN HIM!

    FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME.

    DONT DO IT MITCH!

  • steve

    Well he might not be to bright but…he has to be smarter and cheaper than STAR TREK VLAD…..

  • Rpoc

    Lmfao. Phil would play him and Cook to his heart’s content.

  • fatty

    Hey, Hey, Hey, Its Fat Walker

    This is one rumor that I hope is not true.

    He can’t even bend over to tie his shoe laces.

    NO WALKER BANDWAGON !!!

    Who’s with me?

  • lakerfan81

    Maybe he will just take his money and retire after his contract is bought out. That way Mitch can’t even consider signing him.

  • PHANTOM

    Im sure the LA crispy cremes are happy to have him in town. he should boost the la economy at least the fast food division…

  • kyler_hay

    dudeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee noooooooooooooooooooooooo please dnt do it hes. he is one milkshake away from getting dieabiets

  • http://myspace.com/awkman einyo

    id take him over cook…maybe

  • http://ld2k.com LD2k

    I wouldn’t mind it.

    He is better than Karl – and would bring a BIT of toughness here.

    If you get him for cheap, why not?

  • e-bucher

    i doubt it…he still has two more years in his contract…

  • http://letsgolakers.com Mr.81

    I’d take him for a vet minimum

    Wrong All-Star from the T-Wolves!

    Darnit!

  • http://letsgolakers.com Mr.81

    Haha, true but he’s worth a shot imo.

    In that case I’d just start Luke again.

  • ricky

    i dont think it’s the best option to sign antoine walker, but if it comes at an affordable (cheap, veteran’s minimum) price, then i would give it a shot. walker is a veteran and he can bring some toughness to a soft lakers team right now. 3 bigs that like to live beyond the arc (walker, radman, cook) isnt necessarily what the lakers need, but his value as a former all-star player, seasoned veteran, and one time nba champion will be valuable to the lakers even if it is antoine “shimmy” walker! he could sure add much more depth to this young lakers team anyhow, so yes, i would give it a shot if he’s available.

    y u guys hating on walker so much? come on now he’s definitely better than sasha, cook, and coby karl. if we can get him for a good price we’d be silly not to jump at that. who cares if hes fat and old its not like hes gonna play 35-40 minutes a game and be an x factor in the 4th quarter. it just adds depth and grittiness that we’ve been lacking for years now. if not walker then where the hell is chris webber? can somebody find out please? he’s still a free agent right? there’s still ways to salvage this team with kobe on it.

  • lakerluv

    I would take his 3 ball for cheap. Someone will beat the lakers to it though. Dont worry guys, Mitch has a hard time signing or trading for anyone.

  • ESPNBucher

    I can’t wait for him to do his shimmy at stapples

    For the vet min it might be worth it, simply because it does not cost really much of anything (Buss would have to pay luxury tax on his salary but like 40% of his salary is paid for by the league, something like that) but no way do you trade for him.

  • lakersfan17

    Haha trust me guys the Lakers will never sign him.
