Sources: Lakers eye blockbuster trades

38

Conveniently left out of the title, and buried in the article, are these little nuggets: "The Lakers are not the only team in Los Angeles that's thinking big. Sources say the Clippers also have intentions to go after both Howard and Paul. And like the Lakers, the Clippers are positioned -- financially and talent-wise to make such a move. Unlike the Lakers, the Clippers would not have to make two trades. They could use their wealth of young talent to trade for either Paul or Howard and then sign the other as a free agent next summer when they'll have enough cap room to offer a maximum-salary contract. The one player the Clippers will not offer in a trade is Blake Griffin. "The Lakers have company (in going after Howard and Paul)," another Western Conference official said. "The Clippers are doing the same thing."" TRADE EVERYONE NOT NAMED BLAKE! DO IT NEIL!
