Dave Aldridge reported that a source close to Kevin Garnett said he would be open to going to either LA team. Minney wants a low draft pick, a young player and an expiring contract. So here we go. Corey Maggette, our 14th pick, Shaun Livingston and Sam Cassell goes to Minney for Kevin Garnett. We do the deal, offer our MLE to Theo Papaloukas, the best PG in Europe and we are business. Our new lineup is

C- Chris Kaman

PF- Kevin Garnett

SF- Elton Brand

SG- Cat Mobley

PG- Theo Papaloukas

That is a lineup that could do some serious damage. You could sign Jason Hart who really wants to be here, and he, along with Ewing, Singleton, Diaz, and Thomas could come off the bench. The second round is glutted with some pretty good 7' centers, so we could snag one to come in and play back up to Kaman. So Elgin, get it all done.

I would go for that- though I'd rather they take Kaman instead of Maggette in this case. Doubt that the Wolves will go for it, however.

I wonder if they would take Al thorton, Corey Maggette, and next years first round draft pick. OH, they need another expiring contract. Pick one.

I'm with David. I would throw Kaman instead of Gette...I don't see Kaman,Brand and garnett playing together at the same time...Thomas could be another player we could give them biut anyways it's difficult...nearly impossible Wink

Haha, even though I think it's unlikely, I love talk like this Smile

For the record I think the Clippers can offer a lot more than what Lakers plan to give up.

All this talk is good. We want more reasons for Kobe to boil when he realizes he should've signed with the Clippers all those years ago. Wink

Not bad, and we still have Aaron Williams who plays center under contract for one more year as well. Garnett has played center at times amd is taller than EB. There are also some Euro Centers available. We have one on our summer league team. Daniel Santiago 7'1", out of Spain, played in the NBA two years ago.

and baby shaq anyone? NE news.... All of the "lineups" mentioned are crap. I dont want to offend anyone, but they wont work. EB a 5.... no. EB, Kaman, Garnett... no. we can afford to loose Kaman, not so much Maggette, but honestly for a player like Garnnett anyone is expendable... I dont see this trade likely

Baby Shaq- what's the news on him? I heard something about him being glued to the bench in Europe last season. Maybe he'll come over next season....

Right now I have no time to seek around the web about Sofo's situation...Next week I guess I'm gonna have more free time and I'll try to get some info...What I know right now is that he will play the European Championship this summer in Spain...
