If LA really wants to trade Kobe, they need to do one of two things. Or both.
- Get a good, proven, young player who can be envisioned as the team later a few years down the road.
- Get draft picks that aren't from the team Kobe is traded to, because if they are, they aren't going to be lottery picks, which is what LA should be gunning for.
Yes doesn't that fall into the category of rebuilding?
