Beasley expected to be acquired by Lakers
No solid sources yet, but apparently it's all the rave on Twitter. Interesting to see as this develops in the morning hours ahead.
The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to complete a three-team trade with the Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves that would send Michael Beasley to L.A. before Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.
The Lakers would add Beasley to help fill the void created by the trade of versatile forward Lamar Odom before the season. Blazers guard Jamal Crawford would go to the T’wolves while Portland would receive Lakers guard Steve Blake. The Blazers also could receive a draft pick in the trade, a league source said.
If the Lakers trade Blake, they could try to acquire Cleveland Cavaliers guard Ramon Sessions in another possible deal.
--Portland looks like it'll get a draft pick and Steve Blake, giving up Crawford, the Lakers only give up Blake and pick up a good player.
