I agree that Artest is a risk, but what was Kwame and he hasn't exactly turned out. If we can land Artest without giving up anyone/thing better than Kwame I don't think we can go wrong.

As for Mitch getting active, i'd bet $100 bucks that Artest said he wanted to be a Laker and the Kings brought the idea to the Lakers.



SoCal, your insight on this type of stuff is great.

If this is true I would do it in 1 second. Let's see if Mitch is smart enough to do it.

Artest > Kwame after all.

It's pretty hilarious to think we would have had artest by giving up Bynum.

If Mitch though can pull this off as well as getting JO without giving LO up....I would praise him greatly as well as forgive him for his horrible past

I don't think you can play Kobe and Artest at guards... Artest should play small forward, which makes LO LO expendable for something bigger. If this happens, trade LO LO and some other folks for JO.... This way Artest and JO get to play together again. Bynum, JO, Artest, Kobe and probably Farmar... solid lineup except when playing Phoenix or San Antonio.

Bynum is gone if we get LO.

which wud of made the original trade be caron for artest [with less years]

mitch ima help u out

1st: sign mihm to a small deal, sign luke

2nd: kwame + 2nd rnder for artest

3rd: bynum + fillers for kidd [if vince leaves, jkidd does too, especialy if clev kiicks them out]

4th: lamar + filler + 1st pick for gasol [if not then JO]

if need be u can swap our players in #3 and #4

gives us a line up of
jkidd
kobe
artest
gasol/jo
mihm

with luke of the bench

or insert walton in and have
jkidd
kobe
luke
artest as PF
gasol/JO

thats 3-4 all defensive team players


very likly can happen

from hoopsworld "It's difficult to gauge where the Grizzlies stand with Gasol. If they can draft Greg Oden they probably have no interest in Bynum. If they could pair up Kevin Durant with Bynum (and Rudy Gay), the Grizzlies would boast a bright young core. Or they may prefer to pair up Gasol with one of the top picks, even though he's been adamant that he wants to leave."

also everyplayer except artest is in the east so that helps the lakers too..

I will be surprised if the Lakers end up with even one of them (Artest, JKidd, Gasol/JO).

why do you keep posting this everywhere. That will not and can not work.
Kidd = $20 million
Kobe = $17 million
JO = $18 million
Artest = $8 million
Thats over the salary cap with just 4 players...
