Trade - the Suns step up to the Lakers
Minnesota Timberwolves star
Kevin Garnett will likely be traded to the Phoenix Suns.
According to ESPN, the Suns are now the most likely team
to snatch Kevin Garnet from the Timberwolves. A three-team deal
is speculated, where Suns would send Shawn Marion to the
Celtics, Kevin Garnett would join the Suns and the Timberwolves
would pick up a package of players and picks.
Following the news, the online betting website
Sportsbook.com has updated their odds on the Kevin Garnett
trade. Now the Suns are favorite to attract the player with odds
of 1/2, compared with the Los Angeles Lakers 5/2 on snatching
Garnet to California.
Los Angeles Times reported on its Web site that a
blockbuster trade is being discussed that would solve two of the
biggest off-season mysteries at once: the futures of Kobe Bryant
and Kevin Garnett. Long has been rumored that the L.A. Lakers
will be the new home for Garnet, but it seems those talks have
cooled off. A Garnett-to-the-Lakers blockbuster undoubtedly
would overshadow any number of draft-day deals or free-agent
signings that are materializing, such as Ohio State center Greg
Oden and Texas forward Kevin Durant atop of the NBA Draft list.
