    Default Vescey: Lakers will be acquiring JO

    Peter was just on NBATV and said that Phil Jackson told Kobe that the Lakers will be acquring JO and that is why Kobe has backed off his trade demand as of late today.

    Andre Aldridge asked Vescy if he was speculating - and Vescey there is no specualtion involved here.


    Sorry for another JO to Lakers thread, but I thought this was NEWS and thought it deserved its own thread.

    Edit: I missed the part where Vescey said what the pacers would get in return. But thanks to Dukins, here is what Vescey said
    Bynum, Odom, filler + Laker's 1st rounder for JO and Tinsley".

    What.

    Gosh, I was really getting my hopes up for Gerald Green and Mike Conley!!!!!!

    But hey, if we get Bynum and stuff that's alright. The Lakers were my second choice.

    I just hope we can dump a bad contract on the Lakers.

    I was really taken aback at how matter-of-fact Vescey was about this.

    It could always fall through or be BS because PJ could just be telling Kobe that to calm him down right now but it has been widely talked about that PV knows his Pacer stuff. It would make sense.

    That's how he was with the Thomas hiring as well.

    It made too much sense not to happen... I just hope we get a good deal. Kobe's whining has put the Lakers in a terrible bargaining position, as long as we take advantage I'm happy.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I dont think they would lie to Kobe, cause if they lied to him and did nothing again that would just **** him off more.

    Hey, remember, it's OK, we're pleasing the Lakers, not ourselves!

    Well, at least to me, because I really would like JO to stay.....

    Well no matter who we get back, we lost the best player in the deal. That just blows!

    Man we gave up on JO too soon... or maybe not, I dunno really... I just wanted him to stay. Hoping this isn't true.

    That will be hard because pretty much all of the Laker's contract are better than ours. Even Vladimir's, he makes like 6 million a year compared to Murphy making 8.

    Of course Bird would be the one to do it. No doubt about that. He probably won't get Bynum. We will end up with Odom, Brown, and the 19th pick. Maybe Ronny Turiaf too if we are lucky.

    We're gonna end up with the overrated Bynum, a broken-down Odom, and filler. We probably won't even get a draft pick out of it.

    Puke Hurl Puke Hurl. I just lost my appetite. This is absolutely horrible. One of my favorites going to play with my least favorite player in all of professional sports on one of my least favorite teams. If this pans out to be true - all I can say is farewell and good luck to you JO, but I won't be rooting for you as long as your a *gasp* Laker. Sigh. Maybe they'll take Tinsley and Dun or Murph.

    If we get Bynum, Brown a pick and filler, I'm good with that. If Odom is the centerpiece and we do not get Bynum, I will be screeching for change in the front office. We need Farmar, Bynum and the pick for a rebuild.

    Let's go Pacers!

    Hopefully Kobe's hissy-fit is to our bene-fit.

    I don't think Bynum is overrated, and a pick in this draft sure would be nice.

    But man we are going to suck really bad next year. Maybe that's the point, to win the lottery or something? Urgh.

    Don't get to upset, we don't know if it's offical or who is involed yet.

    SIG, we already sucked this year. I think that unless we got other GMs drunk and stoned could we only improve our team enough to be good. This team sucks right now. We are slow, don't have a second scoring opition, don't even have a natural two guard that can start. We suck. We can't suck much more.
