Default If Kobe does demand Trade

I am not saying that he has or that he even will, but if he does I would think that Chicago is the most likely destination. Chicago will most likely want to shake things up this summer and Kobe most likely would waive his NTC to go there.

I would take 2 of their young players (Deng and Gordon would be my preference) and the # 9 for Kobe. The only problem I see is that it will be near impossible to get the Salaries to match with CHI town without them giving up their entire roster or Wallace (whom I don't want).

Any thoughts

Well, since you asked...
3-way

Lakers trade Kobe, Kwame, #19, #40
get Gasol, Gay, Swift, #4 (draft Conley), filler

Memphis trades Gasol, Gay, #4
get Kobe, Marcus Camby, #19

Denver trades Camby
get Kwame, #40 (Denver is looking for cap relief)

Memphis
Lowry, Kobe, Mike Miller, Camby, Hakim Warrick, draft a PF/PG

Lakers
Mike Conley, Rudy Gay, Gasol, Bynum, LO
(then trade LO for SG, etc.)

Chicago won't be the only franchise looking for Kobe.

Possible Franchise trying to get Kobe.

Chicago
Charlotte
New York( So true)
Orlando
SAS
Portland
New Jersey

Not only that, but Phil Jackson will end up leaving the Lakers.

I understand that many teams will want KB, but he will also have to agree to go. I see Memphis and Chicago being the most probable. I think the a trade with Chicago gives us the best chance to win a championship in the near future. If we could Land Deng and Gordon with the #9, we would have a solid young core for the future with Bynum, Gordon, Deng anour 19 and their 9.

My feeling is that if we trade KB we will have to look at 3-5 years to win as opposed to right now.

The Timberwolves don't just want Kobe, I think they want Bynum too.

I agree that Kobe is the best player in the league, but he is still only slightly better than either LJ or Dwade and they have a lot more left in the tank than Kobe. No way Miami or cleveland does that trade. Denver might trade Carmello, but I would rather have two to three young studs than one All-star. No way I trade Kobe to for Mello and Camby. As for the KG trade that won't happen because neither KB or Kg would agree to that, the Lakers would become the wolves the wolves would become the lakers.

You miss the point. Kobe never agrees to go to Wolves if KG isn't there.

May I ask why we are speculating about a trade based on a demand that has never been made? I am just curious.
