Default Metta World Peace on the Trade Block; What can LA get for him?

World Peace has lost playing time to Matt Barnes lately and could also be challenged by Devin Ebanks, Luke Walton and Jason Kapono. Brown said World Peace still is looking to find his offensive rhythm.

World Peace again looked uncertain Wednesday night, missing an open 3-pointer to drop to 2 for 24 on 3-pointers this season and then moved in to miss a contested 2-point jumper on his next chance.

After he bumbled another possession away, Brown looked down the bench at the resting Kobe Bryant, and Bryant got up to check into the game for World Peace even before Brown could say anything.

Said Brown: "He came in obviously overweight. ... He's close to where he needs to be or where he wants to be."

Now hes not even playing anymore.

He got a DNP - Coach's Decision tonight.

Lakers: Michael Beasley, Luke Ridnour
T'Wolves: Metta World Peace, Devin Ebanks, 2012 Mavericks 1st Round Pick, 2013 Lakers 1st Round Pick

T'Wolves: Metta World Peace can become Ron Artest playing for Rick Adelman again for the 3rd time. He put up 20/5/3 for Adelman in Sacramento and 17/5/3 for him in Houston. Adelman knows how to get through to him and Minnesota badly needs someone who can play any sort of perimeter defense. Ebanks is young with upside and also shown some promise as a defender. Also adding 2 extra 1st Rd picks doesn't hurt.

Lakers: Mike Beasley started the season off hot in Game 1 but has fizzled down the stretch so far before he sprained his foot. Either way hes an upgrade all around at the SF position for LA and maybe playing with Kobe will be what can make him live up to his hype. If not, Lakers can just send him to Orlando in a Bynum/Howard trade. Luke Ridnour is a solid PG who's an upgrade over Fisher & Blake but with Blake now injured he can step in immediately.
