Default New Kobe Rumor!!!

Supposedly Kobe truly has demanded a trade from the Lakers in a private meeting with Jerry Buss. THere has been a multitude of trade options one of which involves Washington in a three way deal that would land Kobe in Chicago.

Chicago gets: Kobe
Chicago Loses: TT, Ben Gordon, PJ Brown (sign and trade), #9 pick

Lakers get: Arenas, Etan Thomas, #9
Lakers lose: Kobe

Washington gets: TT, Ben Gordon, PJ Brown
Washington loses: Arenas, Etan Thomas

This to me is a really good deal for the Bulls! Think about it...

PG: Hinrich
SG: Bryant
SF: Deng
PF: FA signee
C: Ben Wallace

NBA CHAMPS!!!!!!

I thought the other team was New York. It was suppose to be three teams, Chicago, New York, and the Lakers.

Wow! I don't think any team gets screwed in this deal (except for maybe the wizards a little). The Lakers would get someone really good to replace Kobe, the Wizards get 2 really good players in Gordon and Tyrus Thomas and the Bulls with Hinrich, Kobe, Deng and Ben Wallace would win the east.

I find it strange that the Lakers would be getting only the #9 pick from us and Washington would be getting all of our players. Also I'd perfer it if we could give up Andres Nocioni instead of Thomas because he's one of the guys I would expect the Bulls to hold onto long term.

Even if we could land Kobe with only giving up Gordon and TT I could really care less who the other team in the deal invovles. I really want to hang on to TT but if we can get Kobe, I like our chances of the new core being Hinrich, Deng, Bryant, and Noc! Let's face it, you're not going to land the best player in the world w/o losing one of your key guys. I'd rather it be TT than Deng.

If the Bulls were to give up Thomas, I'd expect Paxson to make a move for Nick Collison.

A Starting lineup of Hinrich, Bryant, Deng, Collison, Wallace would be insane!

Look at it this way, you get rid of Kobe now because he doesn't want to be there and you don't have to go through lossing him because he opts out after 09.

It's not like he is going to care a whole lot if he doesn't want to be there, just wants his paycheck. But then again I want Kobe on Chicago's roster along side Hinrich and Deng.

How is this a crappy deal for the lakers??? I mean obviously you can't replace Kobe, but you get a player that is near 30 PPG and a decent player down low. If Kobe doesn't want to be there you mine as well get a very good player for him.

Lakers starting roster
PG: Farmar
SG: Arenas
SF: Walton
PF: Odom
C: Bynum

Looks like a damn good team to start rebuilding! Kobe wants out and he's in his prime, why not trade him when his value is the highest????? He won't be there in two years, so buy some time and sign LeBron when he becomes a FA.

I can live with losing Tyrus Thomas, Luol Deng HELL NO!!

Lakers get raped? LOL, to be honest you get Agent Zero who has already stated he will become a free agent after 08. The Lakers will have a better line up than what they have now.

The Los Angeles Times and Riverside (Calif.) Press-Enterprise, citing sources, reported that in a meeting with Lakers owner Jerry Buss on Friday in Barcelona, Spain, Bryant had reiterated the trade demand he first made three weeks ago. The Press-Enterprise, again citing sources, said Bryant, the only NBA player with a no-trade clause, has a three-team wish list that includes the Bulls and Knicks. For now, the Bulls are working under the assumption the Lakers have no desire to deal their nine-time All-Star guard. That stance is supported by a statement Buss released two weeks ago. Chicago Tribune

But depleting the roster of multiple assets like Luol Deng and Ben Gordon to match Bryant's $19.5 million salary likely would give general manager John Paxson pause. The Bulls first impressed Bryant when Paxson and club Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf met him and agent Rob Pelinka in Newport Beach, Calif., on July 6, 2004, the summer of Bryant's free agency. Chicago Tribune

Which makes my point all the more valid, do you want to give up two leaders for a guy who is an all star?
