Deron Williams Traded To New-Jersey!
Lakers Coach Phil Jackson, however, said Tuesday that the “door’s open for business” before the Feb. 24 trade deadline, a follow-up to similar comments from General Manager Mitch Kupchak on Monday.
Jackson added that “it was a good calling card that Mitch threw out there,” but who could the Lakers realistically trade?
One thing looks certain: the Lakers have “zero” chance of obtaining Denver Nuggets All-Star Carmelo Anthony, according to a person familiar with the Lakers’ thinking who declined to elaborate.
The Lakers and Jackson have always coveted guard Kirk Hinrich, who is averaging 10.9 points and 4.5 assists for the Washington Wizards. Hinrich, 30, makes $9 million this season and $8 million next season.
Veteran sharp-shooter Richard Hamilton is barely playing as the Detroit Pistons head toward a youth movement, but he is making a hefty $12.6 million next season.
