Lakers coach Phil Jackson has always coveted strong rebounders and defenders to play alongside his centers. A tag-team of Wallace and emerging standout Andrew Bynum (once he recovers from his kneecap injury) could raise the Lakers' title prospects.
The deal also helps the Bulls clear space under the salary cap.
Wallace has two seasons after this one remaining on his contract at a total of $28.5 million.
Brown has $9 million left on his expiring contract.
Radmanovic, who is making $5.6 million this season, is signed through the 2010-11 season.
Smith theorized that Radmanovic's contract might be more than the Bulls would like, but it is a good deal less than they're due to pay
Wallace for the next two seasons.
The trade deadline is Feb. 21.
