2011 NBA Draft: Would the LA Lakers Deal Andrew Bynum for Kevin Love, No.2 Pick?
After an embarrassing sweep from the NBA postseason, The LA Lakers are strongly evaluating their current roster to make improvements in the 2011-12 season.
While the Lakers don't hold a first round pick, they've recently become the epicenter of the NBA draft trade talk. Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick tweeted today about Minnesota's interest in acquiring Lakers center Andrew Bynum.
"As Minnesota continues search for high-level player in exchange for No. 2 pick, source says T-Wolves made offer for Bynum. They are incredibly active right now trying to turn that pick into an impact player."
Would Kevin Love and the No.2 overall pick be enough to lure Andrew Bynum out of Los Angeles? Given Jerry Buss' feelings regarding Bynum it's not very likely. While Kevin Love is an NBA All-Star, I'm not sure he alone elevates the Lakers back into championship contention.
Kevin Love and Derrick Williams would certainly add great young talent to the Laker's frontcourt, but the team owner likes Bynum's potential. This probably reinforces the idea that only Dwight Howard would be enough for the Lakers to trade Bynum away.
Just another scenario for Minnesota to ponder at the No.2 draft choice.
