New Orleans does NOT want to trade PJ Brown - everyone just assume they did - but they love this guy and will keep him around. 2ndly, while the Lakers did engage in those discussions, it was always the least likely of all fires in the burners to go down. NO can get much more for Magloire and the 4th pick than Caron, the 10th and some scrubs.
Likely, we'll make moves that aren't tremendously flashy, but will give us some muscle inside. Think more along the lines of what Seattle did. They didn't make earth shattering moves, they just added some big physical guys and combined them with the talent they already had. That's what the Lakers will do.
We need to stop having visions of grandeur by expecting we'll get a big name big man for our left-overs and 1 good piece. We all know it's hard for teams to let go of still young former all-star big men, let alone for a small and some scrubs (even a small as talented as Caron), and including their throwing in the 4th pick in the draft, as well. That's just wishful thinking.
