But if he seriously was opened to coming here, he'd of said something by now.
reality, he doesn't wanna come here.
why would he say anything? He already sees the backlash for Howard and his demands. I'm sure if he did get traded hear he's not gona pout and cry like Howard
Deron's situation is NOTHING like Dwight's nor like Melo's. Denver is a small market team that didn't have another superstar (dwight) begging to come play there. He wanted a HUGE market and wanted to go play with Amare and knew they'd have cap space to go out and get another max player. Deron is already going to be in a HUGE market with a "fresh" franchise that has a billionaire owner who can promise Global reach and Jay-Z as the face of the business side of things. He's also got a good second option in Dallas where he can play for the best owner in sports and with Dirk in his home town.
What I'm trying to say is that he has ZERO reason to put LA on his list of teams... publicly
. Behind close doors his agent has let the Lakers know that he'd be more than happy to join them should they be able to pull off a trade. But in the meantime, they are going to look at what is available... Brooklyn or Dallas. Any talk of LA and the media spreads it like a wildfire and it makes it harder to pull off.
I doubt he'll end up in LA only because we won't trade Bynum for him but this isn't like Dwight who can't handle playing in LA's past superstars shawdows.
