It's one thing to hear about it, but now to know for sure that deals are actively being pursued is another.

One thing for sure, though, the Mavs don't want Kobe.

ESPN - Cuban: No Kobe in Dallas

The most interesting part of this article, though, is that a potential 3-way trade between the Lakers, Bulls, and Kings was nixed!

    Sources told Bucher on Wednesday that the Lakers had been in talks this week with the Chicago Bulls and Sacramento Kings about a possible three-way deal. The Lakers would have acquired Ron Artest and Ben Wallace. The Kings would have gotten Ben Gordon and P.J. Brown. And Bryant would have landed in Chicago.

    That deal is apparently now dead.

Good God, that's a TERRIBLE trade for the Lakers! Why the hell would ANYONE think a misfit like Artest and an over-the-hill Ben Wallace would make up for losing Kobe? If anything, that would have been a good trade for everyone EXCEPT the Lakers! Had this deal gone through, the Kings would have actually leapfrogged the Lakers in the standings with Gordon leading the way for them.

Sigh...I don't like where things are going.

As annoying as this might be for the Lakers, this is Year 3 of "we really really like our core players - but don't get too attached to them because we might trade for Garnett/Gasol/Kobe" for the Bulls. The opener was bad enough for the Nets continuing to own the Bulls, but it's hard to get into the start of the season when it feels like offseason player movement is still going on. - CMLLBlog

Looks like the Bulls have offered Deng, but Kobe wont do a deal if he can't play along side Deng.

Something tells me that with Tyrus and Noah being offered, we can add a couple more guys and get it done, if we can keep a core of Kirk, Kobe, Big Ben and Luol, it's gonna be really hard to stop us.

Due to the salaries, I think Big Ben would have to be included in the deal. Would the Lakers want him though?

Well, scratch the Bulls from the list for now: Click Here (

I would expect things to heat up again in a month and a half. At that point the Bulls can include Nocioni in a deal to try and even it up. The Lakers supposedly are interested in Noc, so a deal of Hinrich, Nocioni, and Thomas, plus whatever cap filler needs to be in there, might be more appealing than anything previously offered up until now.

I figure the reason why Pollard isn't playing much in the series is because having to defend Nowitzki at the arc would take away a rebounding presence. My question is, why did Adelman stick to an 8-man rotation when he has a very deep team?
