Nice photo choice. A couple of things:

- The trade rumor is officially Mihm, Kwame, and Farmar, with Magloire going from Portland to NJ as the third team involved. Expiring contract, serviceable big (in the East) and young talent (Farmar) is a decent return for Kidd's bloated contract.

- I don't think Mitch is smart enough to hold off on this and wait for KG. Remember the "plan" to wait for all those free agents to become available (Stoudemire, etc.), then all those players just signed extensions with their current team and the Lakers got no one.

I think the deal for Kidd is very likely, although I agree with you that it's not the best fit.

Craig, thank you for keeping level on this. Jason Kidd isn't going to get traded because NJ will miss the playoffs if he goes. No playoffs means less ticket sales. In a few years this team is going to Brooklyn, so rebuilding isn't an option because people are already not showing up to games in Jersey.

This trade doesn't improve the Nets now, but it helps them in the future. Right now, they're fighting for the #4 seed in the East, which is wide open. This summer they lose Carter anyway, so this is their chance at making a playoff push.

This trade isn't happening.

but you forgot , what phil wants , mitch gets !

"but you forgot , what phil wants , mitch gets!"

And then Jim and Jerry Buss reject it!

From what I have heard the Laker front office has all signed off on the trade. The thing holding it up is the New Jersy front office. They are holding our for Bynum and the lakes want nothing to do with losing Bynum. If New Jersey is willing to not demand Bynum then the deal will be done sometime tomorrow morning.

I think your right though and the trade will not happen but I would love to see it happen.

you forgot , what phil wants ...mitch gets ...and jim and jerry bush reject it ...but KOBE INSISTS THAT IT BE DONE PRONTO .
and the lakers hierachy can't do anything but comply .

Craig

Maybe that's why the Lakers are very serious about the trade and it's New Jersey that has cold feet. It's just that when Artest and Baron Davis were available, Jim Buss was the one who shot down those deals, despite Kobe and Phil both wanting them.
