Arenas to Lakers??

You guys have got to admit this is fun to dream about. Gilbert for Walton or Vujacic and Odom? Sign me up! I don't think the Lakers would do it, but anyways. Here's the section on Gilbert by Sam Smith, if you don't feel like scrolling down: "I’ve long mentioned LeBron as a possibility for the Lakers, and you already hear rumbles of Andrew Bynum being available. Of course, he’s had injury problems, but he is a real center and post player, a rarity in this NBA. Bosh has been rumored to L.A., also, with Bynum a sign and trade possibility. But in watching the Lakers win the championship, many things stood out. Namely, in the end, it was a risky acquisition, Ron Artest, who made the difference, and there’s a need for a point guard and scoring even though Derek Fisher hit some big shots once again. But he is 36 in August. So could/would the Lakers put together something for Gilbert Arenas? We hear all this stuff now how the new Wizards owner is becoming close with Arenas, but the Wizards know they will never get the most out of No. 1 pick John Wall as long as Arenas and his monstrous personality are around. They’d love to move on. Certainly the biggest obstacle for anyone is those four big years left on his deal. If I were the Lakers, I’d go for LeBron or Bosh. But if Kobe did not want that kind of ego and personality around, Arenas may make sense. He is from L.A., he’s been a huge scorer in the league at point guard and really is more a tweener guard, which fits Phil Jackson’s two guard front in the triangle. Jackson’s never needed a classic, true point guard. Just to get rid of Arenas and his money, you figure the Wizards would take some combination of Sasha Vujacic and Luke Walton and a sign-and-trade for someone else, maybe even Lamar Odom. Maybe even have the owner drive Arenas there. No one’s better dealing with troubled players than Jackson and Arenas puts 20 more points into the game. Now Fisher can come off the bench in fewer minutes, which would fit better. And now you keep Bynum, which gives them size and more scoring."
