Default Elton Brand

Why hasn't anybody mentioned him yet? He could be great for the Lakers. Probably mentioned before.

What is Elton Brand's value and salary contract? If his value is good and his contract isn't bad, the Lakers should go after him.

Thoughts?

Yeah and the Clippers will trade their best player to the Lakers. Approximately at the same time when pigs start flying....

They'd trade Brand to the Lakers...for Kobe. And that's it.

Keep EB out of any trade talks, please. Don't get me wrong we'll trade you something for Kobe but we will not involve our franchise for him or any other players on your team. Unfortunately you guys are in the same position we were in last year. You need to make a trade but I think your situation is much worse and Laker management better do something quick before it tears your team up. The really bad thing is any team that is involved in trade talks with you, know they have the upper hand. I'm hoping we make a trade under the radar thanks to all the activity in your camp.

Brand isn't talked about because he isn't on the market. Clippers do need something, but getting rid of Brand doesn't help them in anyway.

I also have to disagree with adiedanny. The 2-3 teams we are rumored to be talking to (Indiana, Memphis, and Sacramento) all have players that have also expressed their desire to leave their respective teams. Jermaine O'neal has been unhappy for some years with Indy. Sacramento wants to get rid of Ron Artest like the plague. Pau Gasol made the same comments that Kobe did "either improve the team or I leave".
