Lakers 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)...

But yeah, I think it's false too. But this would be a great trade.

Lakers would only do that if we took back Walton lol. But even then, they'd rather offer Barnes for Bayless (no Walton).

Solving SF problem seems a bit premature as Kleiza isn't back yet

If something like this happens, I expect it will be closer to the trade deadline, when we have a better idea exactly what we have at the 3.

Why would Minny trade Love for Pau, that makes no sense.

And they'd have to give up more than just Love to make it work.

logically it would make sense by trade deadline...but RB and Barbosa are almost useless in this team especially when Bayless come back

I think we might cut Forbes & I don't want Barnes on this team period!

Ebanks would be a nice young edition though...He is 6'9" & being forced to play Guard/Forward because LA has no Backup at SG

I just don't think we would be getting enough in return for Barbosa in this trade.

Not nearly enough salary leaving the Lakers. If it was Bayless instead of Barbosa it would work.

Barnes is a very good defender and is an expriring anyway. Wouldn't be surprised if BC wasn't already planning on going after him again this summer.

Lakers have a rather large trade exception from Odom trade, no?

As such, they could easily send out more salary than they'd take back. Not that I'd advocate most of these trades, except perhaps Babosa/Ebanks one.

I would much rather lose Bayless than Barbosa.

The Raptors really need a veteran scorer on their second unit.

Bayless is too out of control most nights, and no one else can create their own offense.
