You're right. However, every Thursday, owner Larry H. Miller is on 1280 the zone. Before everyone gets muzzled about FA's except for two representatives per team, they asked him about some free agents. When KG came up he said something like, you'd be crazy not to think about trying to get him [KG]. If we could do something that left two unnamed young core players here...now that would be somethin.

Think of the possibilities

Williams
x (1 of 4 prosepects)
Mo Pete (signing would be done deal with KG)
Boozer
Garnett

Plus KG could get used to a title contender....
ok, that's enough dreaming about what will really not happen.

AK's deal does suck. But I still choose two all stars over bynum...

Minnesota by trading Garnett is not trying to win a championship, they are going to rebuild so what's the problem with 18 wins?

34$ millions in expiring contracts in 2 years, Bynum and probably high lottery picks.


Forgetting Minnesota already traded for Howard, that's 41$ Millions in expiring contracts in 2 years. McHale should do it.

exactly. good move on minny's part.

get young blood in. some expirers. stink and get a high chance at winning no1 pick 2008 draft. and have money to play with as well.

dont see why they dont say yes.

Alright trade for everyone. Boston gets Odom to really contend in the east, Minny gets a good young package, and Lakers get KG and Kobe together. Not a bad trade, too bad it won't happen.

After James trade, Foye ready to be full-time starter for Wolves

Foye will be starting at PG for the Wolves next year. So here's what the lineup would look like after that trade.

PG - R. Foye/M. Jaric/T. Hudson
SG - R. Davis/R. McCants/B. Wright
SF - G.Green/T. Hassell/C. Brewer
PF - J. Howard/T. Ratliff/K. Brown/C. Smith
C - M. Blount/A. Bynum/M. Madsen


Minnesota has a veteran presence to teach the young guys. They got expiring contracts (K.Brown and T. Ratliff) at the end of the year. J. Howard expires in 2 years. They have LOTS of really young talent. Bynum would be going into his 3rd season, Foye into his second, Brewer and Wright are rookies. Green is really young. Sure they might not be great next season, but even if Minnesota keeps KG, I think they are expected to finish in the bottom of the west. Might as well start rebuilding and get these guys some chemistry and experience together.

This is getting f*CKING ridiculous.


The Lakers don't really have enough to offer to get KG.

The problem with this trade is that SO MANY TEAMS CAN OFFER MORE.




That's it. That's all I got.... but I'm right.

I think a deal from GS is way better than this deal! IMHO
Minny isnt getting anything to right home about.

I gotta agree with you. The earlier rumors had the Lakers giving up LO and Bynum to get KG and that was all rubbish. Now, it's the basically the same scenario. Kobe ain't going anywhere, and KG's not going to the Lakers. Might as well accept it and get ready for a year of b*tchin and moanin from Kobe.

I'm not sayin that Bynum + Kwame package can't get them someone like Gasol or something.

But KG.... c'mon now.

As for Odom... why would the Lakers trade him? He's really f*cking underrated. Maybe Laker fans could see that if they got off Farmar and Bynum's scrotes for two seconds.

Well, it has been made clear that the possibility for Lakers to get Garnett is already approximately zero. The timberwolves will take only Warriors and Suns into consideration.
