Milwaukee Acquires: PG S. Blake, SF R. Artest, SF D. Ebanks, No. 41 pick
Los Angeles Acquires: PG B. Jennings, SG J. Salmons
This trade makes sense and I’ll tell you why. Jennings is a young point guard with a great deal of potential. He can thrive along side veteran players like Kobe Bryant and Derick Fisher, who can serve as a mentor for the young guard. The point guard position is a huge area of concern and the Lakers can not win with Steve Blake or Derek Fisher starting at the position.
Ron Artest has also been a liability at times so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to get rid of the one time defensive player of the year.
The acquisition of Jennings would give the Lakers a different dynamic without shifting any of the major players. Not to mention, Jennings could be a different player performing in front of his hometown crowd.
