Thread: Rumors from ClubLakers.com (Turns out to be more made up crap)

    If this is true...

    If I was Indiana, I'd do that RJ trade. Although my Lakers' offer of Odom & Devean isn't bad either.

    By the way, you guys definitely don't want that supposed Wizards trade. That is, unless you enjoy having defensive cancers on your team. Chucky in particular.

    The guy just registered today so you can't be too sure he isn't pulling our collective leg.

    By the way, I'm 99% sure that guy is lying. Trust me.

    It's most likely someone trying to rile up Laker fans. We probably haven't offered Odom although his name has come up.

    Latest Ron rumors
    This will likely be the week Ron Artest lands at his new home, and there have been a number of rumors popping up while you were sipping your champagne.

    Because of Donnie Walsh's desire to make sure Artest is shipped as far away as possible so he doesn't hurt the Pacers, Western Conference teams have become popular destinations. The Lakers are one potential spot if they can get a trade partner in place, with Devean George and Lamar Odom as names that have come up as possibilities.

    Golden State is another team that could potentially pull the trigger -- forwards Mike Dunleavy, Troy Murphy and Ike Diogu are all solid young players that could potentially land Artest.

    The Clippers talk has cooled because Corey Maggette's injury, but perhaps a package including Chris Wilcox could be worked out. Minnesota and Denver have each had conversations with the Pacers, too, and noted above, both could badly use his services.

    Was not really for sure where this blurb should go.. or if it needed it's own thread some of the same specualtion, however the Golden State players mentioned , does fit somewhat with the rumored players on the first post from Hicks..

    Also this is now the second or third report from yesterday or today that is suggesting this could or should be the week... then again

    Why Not Us ?

    Yeah, I posted this article in one of the 5000 trade threads yesterday, not knowing where it should go or wanting to start a whole new thread for it!

    He's versatile enough to play SG. Not quite sure he's worth all the money we would be paying him though. Isn't he making max money or close to it?

    The radio station here, which BTW first broke the deal that brought J-Will and Posey to Miami, is saying all deals have been sent in as of late this afternoon, and Pacers GM Donnie Walsh is going to send Artest and Foster to the Warriors for Mickael Pietrus and Troy Murphy. Deal will reportedly be announced before 5 PM EST today. (Tuesday)
    Walsh reportedly shyed away from Odom due to his past but mostly due to his enormous contract.
    It kinda makes sense, since Hulk got so much PT and played so well last night.

    If this happens, I hope you guys are right about Pietrus. I've seen very little of the guy in action. Btw, isn't Pietrus injured? How long is he expected to be out?

    Wow. I hope this dude is right, but I hope Murphy doesn't take the starting spot that Harrison has a chance at right now.

    I don't think he would either, because when it comes to Harrison vs. Murphy, Harrison is a much better defender, Murphy just blows. Hopefully Rick will give David the nod because of that.

    But I like Pietrus, a lot. He's a great perimeter defender. Pietrus and Granger on the perimeter would be kill.

    I would much rather do a trade with the Warriors.But don't underestimate Memphis right now with West looking for a PG. Which we could accomodate with one of ours.(Tinsley or AJ)

    I would like to get Pieatrus and Murphy but have a hard time believing it is true.

    - The Warriors would be trading their leading rebounder without getting one back. Although Foster is nice I don't know that he is a guy who can replace Murphy. (Unless GS wants more defense than it makes sense)
    - DW is scared of Odom's contract, roughly 39 million over 3 seasons, but not Murphy's who makes roughly 49 million through 2010/2011???

    I always thought Murphy was a PF not beying very good if capeable at all at C. However, the consequence of that could very well be, and you are not going to like that ... JO playing C FULLTIME, while PF gets taken fulltime by Croshere and Murphy.

    Maybe, David gets some backup minutes behind JO, but ehmm... there's also this Pollard dude

    It this is the deal that will come out then I will be satisfied. I'm trying to refrain myself from beying too exstatic ... for now, I'll have to see it first.

    As for JO, they probably asked him how he felt about playing C more often, and either he said "I can do it" (and I would assume this is when they thought they could get Al Harrington), or he said "I don't think I can" or "I don't know", and they decided to play David Harrison. Dunno.

    I hope this is true. Guess we'll know in 2 or 3 hours. If nothing's been said by 6 or at the lastest 7, we know this is bogus.

    I'm very much ok with it, except if JO indeed would have to play C fulltime, but Rommie made a good point about his salary. On the other hand compared to the Odom deal we also get a second decent player with, some will hate this one, "potential" in Pietrus which changes the situation a bit. This would mean Freddie not getting extended and we would have to make some more moves maybe to not EXPLODE over the cap.

    Did anyone try this on REALGM btw?

    I think dd00 said it best,apart from Shaq,nobody plays with big lumbering centers anymore. It has become 2PF's, 2swing players & a PG.

    Successful Scenario
    There were BYC players involved in this trade, so this trade is subject to the BYC provisions of the CBA. Due to Indiana and Golden State being over the cap, the 25% trade rule is invoked. Indiana and Golden State had to be no more than 125% plus $100,000 of the salary given out unless trade exceptions were used for the trade to be accepted, which did happen here. This trade satisfies the provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. "

    That doesn't mean you should go that way if you have the opprotunity to start a real center.
