Barbosa for Ebanks?

From a LAL poster @ realgm so it's likely complete horseshit.....

If it includes Walton, then no way Jose. His contract doesn't run out until 2013.

I haven't made many posts lately but maybe a few of you recall the posts I made in the past "One Love" a few years back when we picked up Gasol... I will not get into "sources" or anything of that nature but the Lakers are in advanced discussions to acquire Barboso (preference) or possibly Bayless (fallback) from Toronto... Toronto is looking for an upgrade at the SF postion and covets Ebanks but Lakers are trying to unload Barnes & picks (apparently offered Ebanks if they take Waltons contract)... Both players are in the last year of their contracts and Barbosa makes $7.6 million and Bayless makes $3 million...

I do think both would be upgrades but I do like Ebanks allot... Brown is pushing for more speed in the backcourt and apparently has Jim's ear... I have also been told that Minny is consistenly trying to get Pau (play with Rubio and allow Williams to get time) by dangling Love but Lakers continue to rebuff but are getting receptive... There are huge salary issues with that trade as Pau makes $18.7 million and K Love makes $4.6 million (nobody on Minnys roster makers ore than $7 million a year)...
