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.
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.
Few reporters said he was on DNP because his back is injured/sore
