Mark Medina said Redd is a prime target for the Lakers, also if Warriors get Landry it changes things in the Rush sweepstakes... so I think its a safe bet that we give Redd the veterans minimum and give Rush the MMLLE.
I can’t wait to watch Brandon Rush watch Steve Blake play all the backup guard minutes from the bench. I’d rather they try to get quicker starting forwards (ie. Deng & Noah) than worry about the bench.
^^ You should probably edit the quote into your opening post.
As for the question, I don't know if either are likely at this point. A lot of what may happen with Howard will be decided today when Orlando will talk to Howard. Also, there's a decent chance we may get Redd but I'm not sure about Rush.
I am certain what will happen is that it will signal the end of July.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
