Let Barnes or Artest go....

Forum rules
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.

If we had to let one go I'd keep Barnes.

I think that both are mature enough, at times, and that with some conventional coaching and treatment from Mike Brown, that we keep both. Barnes is still a great discount. They defend differently, Artest has lost a step and Barnes is still rehabbing apparently. So how can you say "lose one"...We're fortunate to have both, we would be even more fortunate if they played closer to their 'A-game"....regularly.

I wish the new CBA let the teams to use the amnesty clause for more than one player, because if that was allowed, I would waive in a minute L.Walton, R.Artest, St.Blake and D.Fisher. Matt Barns is still an insurance and if stays healthy, he can help this team a lot. But with him and A.Bynum,that is a big problem.
If I am a Lakers GM, I will waive L.Walton and try to trade Artest & Blake to any team for a pair of second round pics.Unfortunately, we have lost Sasha Vujacic's trade exception of $ 5.5 mil. We still have that $ 8.9 mil. TPE from Lamar, and about $ 5.8 mil. midlevel exception and $ 1.35 mil veteran exceptions to use.So, there are some opportunities to upgrade this team.I just don't see M.Kupchak doing it.

We can amnesty Artest after this season and then trade Walton as an ending contract next season.

Now, that is a good tought.

" Let them go" is not a option here. Both, Artest and Barns are under contract for next year, with PO for Ron.So, I don't think anyone of them will choose to go voluntarly.Till they have same value as a good defenders and long NBA experience, some stocked with rookies teams may be interested in their service.Getting some second round draft picks for them ,Blake,Murphy & Kapono, in return, will give us a lot more options in a trades. We can include these draft pics to any package to make it sweet.And yes.We need to waive Luke Walton and ask D.Fisher to retire. That are our best options before the tradeline end.
