It was an expiring contract that the Grizzlies were after, what exactly did they "get away" with?

Kobe asked for a trade, knowing damn well he was not going to leave LA, just telling Mitch and Jerry, "I ain't winning no f**king championship with Smush Parker and f**king Kwame Brown!"
indeed. that doesn't really have much to do with players consistently not playing up to there talent level tho, considering there was no talent back then to begin with. if the right deal, right fit, right situation would have been there he probably would have dipped tho

I just don't see who is worth moving around on their roster, maybe a package with Artest and Blake for another scorer/defender like a Stephen Jackson or Gerald Wallace, I just don't see them moving anyone, unless they really are desperate to go out and get someone. Bynum is staying, I don't care what Lakers fans say, until at least Howard opts out in 2012, but now, either they are plotting a trade, or they are just trying to wake the team up.

Artest is trash and Fish is done. Knowing the Lakers, they'll get hot around playoff time and get back to the Finals.

IF they are making a trade its going to be a minor trade. They have a $5M trade exception to use.

To get Melo they have to give up Bynum or Odom and that's not going to happen.

Trade:
Ron Artest
Andrew Bynum

For:
Carmelo Anthony

Clears room in the paint. Melo would need to play the 3 (Trading Artest opens this idea), underrated defender, and can certainly defend strong 3's. Matt Barnes is returning soon.

I doubt Nuggs would do that, but I agree with that... Try to move Bynum for Melo... Throw in Brown, Ebanks, what ever picks you can...

I remember a certain team going through the same struggles last year around this time..

What team was that?

Oh, yeah, the Celtics.

It's a different game come May and June.

They won't be able to get a good enough player to improve the team without dealing Bynum, so.... go ahead. No one is stopping you.

East winner will win the Finals regardless.

Really, I was just kidding with the Melo talk.. You guys can rest a.ssured that he's not going to be a Laker.

Trading away Bynum spells more trouble. Defense is already piss-poor as it is..You compound that by taking away the only shot-blocker the team has (sorry, but Pau's positional defense and ability to contest shots in the paint is disturbingly bad).

I think Artest may be gone just because they think he's dragging the team down. I hope this isn't the case, but it could be just for a short term solution and they trade for an expiring contract or something. Can't see too many teams wanting to take on Artest's long contract though.

Ron Artest is on the steady decline and his contract doesn't end until he's 35 years old. I don't see why the Nuggets, or any other team looking to rebuild for that matter would take him on at the expense of a player of Carmelo Anthony's value.

If anything, I could see some type of deal involved around Bynum/Iggy but I don't see how that makes the Lakers much better. Defensively they'd become the worst of all elite teams in basketball. They're better off staying as is. They'll come together when the games mean more.

It wont just be the guards moved. Odom, Bynum or even Pau could be shipped out. They may feel they dont have th inside players to challenge the Celtics in a finals matchup if they get there. But, what bigs could they get? Dalembert, Camby is about all thats out there. Unless they would take back Ben wallace and rip from detroit

They could work a deal with MJ for Jack and Kwame or keep an eye out for a deal with memphis for z bo and oj
