I can't believe some are willing to throw away a young player who also has an expiring contract for a 38 year old "close to retiring after the season" type of player.
But whatever, we should use our expiring contracts on old veterans. Great plan!
Yes it is a great plan. You give up a crap player for an older vet. Who the hell wouldn't do that? Morrison has proven that he doesn't have the talent to play in this league. Why try to develop him when the Lakers are trying to win now?
I'm glad you aren't the Lakers GM.

Why go after Bowen when he'll be released anyway?
The report is that he's being shopped. Obviously the Bucks are going to try to get something in return before they just buy him out.
Yes, Morrison could be a valuable trade bait, but since he has proven he's simply not good enough to play in the NBA, why would any team want him besides his expiring? Besides, this is a great trade for the Lakers : They get rid of a player that doesn't even play for a proven older vet that only has to play spot minutes on this team.

And? He wouldn't be playing heavy rotation minutes and he can't do any worse than Morrison.
