Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant

Minnesota Timberwolves and the LA Lakers are reportedly in trade negotiations. The Lakers want another big name player for three reasons.

1. Make Kobe happy and convince him to stay around
2. Have the Big Ticket sell more tickets
3. Apparently Kobe can't win on his own, so the team needs to be become a two headed dragon.

I think Minnesota should not part with Garnett that easily. Nothing bugs me more than teams trying to reload and they dump their best players for little or nothing in return. Minnesota needs some more good young players. Get some high draft picks - which the Lakers don't have.

Supposedly the Lakers offered Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom. Not enough in my mind. I like Bynum and think he is developing into a good center. Odom is solid, but is not a go to franchise player.

Come up with a lottery pick somehow and throw that in and then we are talking business.

Another rumor out there has Garnett possibly going to Phoenix and Amare Stoudemire going to Atlanta and draft picks going to Minnesota. What? Any more teams want to offer something?
