ESPN report on KG trade

12 posts in this topic

The ESPN website is saying that the Wolevs are close to trading KG to the Lakers, in a three or 4 team deal with the PAcers and perhaps the Celtics. The ESPN website has more.

While I'm glad that KG now has a shot to get his ring, I wish it would have been any team other than the Lakers tongue.gif

If he's going to the Lakers, too bad we couldn't get Kobe Bryant in a straight up. Dreaming, I know.

I heard of that one and I did come across this one today.

Suns get Garnett, Celtics get Shawn Marion, and the Wolves get the #5 pick from Boston, #24 and #29 from Phoenix, 2008 1st round pick from Phoenix which is Atlanta's and is unprotected, and they get Kurt Thomas and Theo Ratliff which their contracts expire after the season.

I would probably think that we send the #24 to the Clippers to square up for the Cassell trade, then send the #29 to the Celtics to square up for the Wally trade. This trade will give us huge salary cap relief and square up on all our bad trades. There are some monster free agents in 2008 plus we will have the Atlanta 1st round pick and our own which will probably be top 10. I would do it.

Last that I heard it was down to the Lakers and Wolves in a two way deal with the Lakers getting Garnett and the Wolves getting Odom, Bynum, and Brown. They are also talking about maybe the 19th pick?? I am not so sure about this deal confused.gif

So you trade away the franchise to try to loosen up some cash to sign free agents. They will never get anyone close to Garnets ability.

It will be another 10 years at least til they win a play off series at this rate.

They need to keep Garnet and get some "Players" around him.

If they get rid of Garnet the stands will be empty for a long long time!

i want absolutely no part of a 2 team trade with LA. odom sucks, bynum is still a work in progress.

I wouldn't say Odom sucks, but he's on the downside of his career. If they're going to trade KG then they need to get the most draft picks possible. McHale is bound to screw up on 50% of them so if we get a bunch we should get at least one or two good players.

I'd like to keep KG as much as anyone, but his hefty salary and the fact that we have a ton of money tied up in useless players (i.e. Hudson, Jaric, Blount, etc.) for a bunch of years means that it's almost impossible to surround him with enough talent to compete for a title in the west.

i wouldnt say blount is a useless player. he is ok. im glad it sounds like theyre gonna send jaric or t-hud with KG though so that would be nice. i still like the trade for the 5th, 19th, gerald green and company the most. i also heard something today that theyre looking at dealing t-hud for nazr mohammed. that wouldnt be bad.

I'd take Nazr for Hudson.

The deal I like the best is getting Al Jefferson and Boston's #5 pick. Not sure Boston wants to give up both though. That deal makes the most sense for everyone as the Wolves would get a good (young) low post player and a top draft pick. KG could then team up with Pierce in a much easier eastern conference.

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
