Default Lakers were "7 minutes away" from receiving Michael Beasley

According to ISH,

Minnesota Twolves owner, Glen Taylor, blocked the deal.

Kinda makes you hate some of these owners.

Los Angeles Times reports:

The Lakers got younger and shed more than $9 million in player costs Thursday, saying goodbye to two longtime franchise standards but getting quicker in the process.

The Lakers acquired point guard Ramon Sessions and seldom-used small forward Christian Eyenga from Cleveland for Luke Walton, Jason Kapono, their first-round pick in this year's draft and less than $1 million in cash.

They also acquired power forward Jordan Hill from Houston for Derek Fisher and the first-round pick they got from Dallas in the Lamar Odom trade.

The Lakers were seven minutes from acquiring Minnesota forward Michael Beasley, but Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor blocked an agreed-upon three-team trade right before the deadline that would have sent Fisher to Minnesota, not Houston, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The trade also would have involved Portland.
