    No way.

    I really hope we re-sign Walton though.

    Ok so assuming we get Garnett, would it be fair to say that Kobe is responsible for him coming here or is he still a little whiner no matter what happens this off season.

    Both. The guy is just not very good at being diplomatic.

    Now that the Celts are out of the talks, I'm not very optimistic about a deal getting done.

    From ESPN Insider:

    Are the Boston Celtics the key to moving Kevin Garnett to L.A.?

    The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that the Lakers were in discussions with the Minnesota Timberwolves about a trade that would send Garnett to the Lakers. The trade also would involve the Indiana Pacers and possibly a fourth team.

    After speaking with a league source, I think the deal has some legs, though it doesn't appear imminent.

    According to the source, the key to completing the deal is finding a fourth team that would (a) take Jermaine O'Neal and (b) send the Timberwolves enough pieces to complete the deal.

    Despite reports to the contrary, the Celtics are balking at including the player the Timberwolves want in the deal -- Al Jefferson. According to a different league source, if Minnesota insists on Jefferson, it's a deal killer for Boston.

    However, the deal could work without Jefferson, if Minnesota lowered its sights a little.

    For instance, here's one scenario that could work:

    The Wolves send Kevin Garnett and Marko Jaric to the Lakers.

    The Lakers send Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum to the Pacers and the No. 19 pick to the Wolves.

    The Pacers send O'Neal to the Celtics.

    The Celtics send the No. 5 pick, Theo Ratliff, Gerald Green and Sebastian Telfair to Minnesota.

    Here's what that trade looks like in the Trade Machine, keeping in mind that there also will be draft picks involved.

    The deal seems as though it probably would work for the Lakers, Pacers and Celtics.

    The Lakers would get the guy they want to pair with Kobe in KG. Surely that would end any talk of a Kobe trade this summer.

    The Pacers would get the two guys they want in exchange for O'Neal in Odom and Bynum. They've been waiting patiently for a straight-up swap with L.A. for weeks involving those three players (and a draft pick).

    The Celtics would get another star quality player to pair with Paul Pierce without having to give up Jefferson.

    But is it enough for Minnesota? That's the question.

    The deal would give the Wolves more than $20 million in cap relief next summer and two additional picks in this year's draft. It also would give them two young prospects in Green and Telfair.

    It might, however, fall a little short for Minnesota in the talent department. Perhaps the Wolves would bite if another young player or future draft pick were included.

    Chad Ford is actually completely wrong about his possible trade scenario in that article.

    The Lakers taking in KG and Jaric and dumping Odom and Bynum would be a violation of the CBA trade rules because they'd be absorbing more than 125% of the outgoing salary. Just putting his hypothetical in the ESPN.com "Trade Machine" tells you that.

    The Lakers would have to dump Odom, Bynum, and Kwame (and delete Jaric from the incoming list) to make acquiring Garnett possible.

    looks like KG to LA is dead

    http://probasketballnews.com/pbnbrkng_062607.html

    Trade talks that involved sending Minnesota star Kevin Garnett to the Los Angles Lakers have ended, sources within the organizations have told ProBasketballNews.com.

    “It’s officially dead. (Timberwolves owner Glen) Taylor won’t allow it to happen,” one source said.

    The deal was first reported by the Los Angeles Times as a possible four-team trade that also involved Indiana and Boston, in which the Lakers would have received Garnett. According to the Times, Lakers big men Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum would have been sent to Indiana, and Indiana forward Jermaine O’Neal would have gone to Boston. Minnesota would have received young players and draft picks.

    The Times later reported that Boston backed out of the deal -- leaving the Lakers and Timberwolves to negotiate on their own. One scenario reported by the newspaper had the Lakers shipping Odom, Bynum and the No. 19 pick to Minnesota for Garnett.

    The Boston Globe and other news sources have reported similar deals within the past 24 hours.

    “All discussions have ended (between the Lakers and Timberwolves),” a second source told PBN.com. “There’s no deal.”

    A third source would only say “it‘s very slim” when asked if there remained a possibility that Garnett could end up with the Lakers this off-season.

    Taylor and Timberwolves vice-president of basketball operations Kevin McHale ended the talks with L.A. after determining the Lakers couldn’t offer enough in return, according to the sources. The Timberwolves are expected to continue seeking a deal for Garnett, and will likely focus their attention again on Boston and possibly Phoenix.

    “It seems like they don’t want (Garnett) playing in the Western Conference, and that only makes sense,” the first source said.

    Garnett is 31 years old and a 10-time All-Star. He has spent all 12 seasons in Minnesota, and averaged 22.4 points, 12.8 rebounds and 4.1 assists last year.

    Garnett is owed $22 million next season and $23 million in 2008-09. His contract expires following the ‘08-09 season and he reportedly has requested an extension.

    Well, from the get-go in all the proposed deals, they were getting a raw deal. It's not like they were keen on it and then backed out.
