As you may have noticed, there are two new sub-forums in this forum -- Sourced Rumors and Trade and Signing Ideas.
All threads should go in one of these two places. And here is how you will determine where to post (this will also help you know where to look for particular threads):
All topics created in the Sourced Rumors forum should have a source (hence the name of the forum). State where you heard/saw the rumor and a link if applicable. Good sources would be an online article or a respectable blog by a member of the media. Radio reports or summaries from TV reports (ex. Bucher on ESPN News) are also accepted, but the staff will have a quicker trigger finger with regards to these two, especially if they are being posted by a member who's credibility is questionable or if no one else heard/saw the report. This is due to the fact that people often fabricate reports for various reasons. Only sources which directly mention the Lakers or a Lakers player should be reported in the Sourced Rumors sub-forum.
Trade and Signing Ideas: in short, this is where everything else goes. Suggestions of who the Lakers should sign or trade for. Reports of other teams' players being on the trade block. To differentiate these from general ideas/suggestions, please continue to use list the source in the title, just as we did with the sourced rumors prior to the creation of the sub-forum (ex. ESPN: Nuggets looking to move Melo). Such reports would not go in the Sourced Rumors forum because they do not directly relate to the Lakers and any discussion that the rumor would spawn would be speculation and trade suggestions. Any "inside" rumors from family, friends, or other sites should be posted in the Ideas forum. Once it is supported by a sourced member of the media, it will be moved to the Sourced Rumors forum.
If you are still uncertain of where to post your topic, post it in the parent forum, Lakers Trade Rumors, and it will be redirected by a staff member.
Stumbled on to this yesterday, thought it was interesting. Totally unrealistic, but interesting nonetheless.
Some beat writer out of Milwaukee claims that Brandon Jennings is on the block, and he goes on the blab out a "rumor" that we would ship out Pau Gasol for Brandon Jennings, Ersan Ilyasova and filler (likely Corey Maggette).http://www.brewhoop.com/2011/6/5/220669 ... n-jennings
Thought it was worth posting at least.

Thanks for posting.
I think that'd be a bad trade for LA. If the Lakers traded for Jennings, they'd have to take back at least one horrible contract. The Lakers would have to take either Maggette or Salmons back and neither of those guys would really have a place here (unless it's to back up Kobe).

The only one I would trade for Jennings is Odom. You dont trade Gasol or Bynum unless you get a top big man in return.
