Brian Cook is a great shooter but he's kind of similar to Tim Thomas. Also I wouldn't give up Maggette for Cook + another Laker bench player. Maybe- and that's a big mayble- Magette for Cook + 2 future 1st rounders. But yeah personally I wouldn't like seeing Maggette playing for another Western conference team let alone the Lakers.
But is Gasol still available? How about Maggette + Kaman + Rebraca for Gasol?
