According to radio station 1270 AM in Detroit, the Lakers and Pistons came to an agreement to trade Bryant to the Pistons.

However, Bryant used his no-trade clause to veto the trade.

The report claims the deal was completed late Tuesday night.

Detroit would have sent Tayshaun Prince, Rip Hamilton, Amir Johnson and a first round pick to the Lakers.

Nov 15, 2007. So old. The Pistons would have been crazy though. Sure Kobe didn't want to go there. Detroit is not a big market

So

Billups
Kobe
??
McDyess
Wallace


I think that team is a little worse than the Lakers team last year.

It wouldnt really change anything. That team would be a one dimensional mess.

Yea besides, If Kobe hadnt waived his no trade clause he would have already been in Chicago.

We made a deal during the summer but he waived it off then too.

Not sure how Kobe would have fit with Billups, Kobe likes to have the ball in his hands on most possessions but with Billups he wouldn't have, but talent wise that's a great team.

That would be a great team on paper. Not sure how it would translate on the court though.

I wouldn't have wanted to go either. trading Rip Hamilton and Tayshaun is trading away what would make them a good teram. All they would really have after this is Kobe of course, Chauncey and Sheed. They would've been decent, but not THAT good.

Maybe a lineup of this would have occurred by now:

C - Wallace/Brown/Samb
PF - Maxiell/McDyess
SF - Herrmann/Sharpe
SG - Bryant/Afflalo
PG - Billups/Stuckey/Bynum

Man imagine even after that we still made that AI trade too.

C - Wallace/Brown
PF - Maxiell/McDyess
SF - Bryant/Herrmann/Sharpe
SG - Iverson/Afflalo
PG - Stuckey/Bynum

Yes, but it may match up better with the Celtics. Billups is good enough defensively to stop Rondo, Kobe = Kobe, Stuckey's quickness would cause Ray Allen problems, Sheed would be able to stretch the court, and McDyess is a quality player. Obviously they would've needed to find a way to get another piece or two, but that would be a tough matchup for Boston.

If that happened, the Lakers would be:

PG: Lamar Odom
SG: Richard Hamilton
SF: Tayshaun Prince
PF: Pau Gasol
C: Andrew Bynum

not bad for a team that just lost Kobe bryant.

Hey guys what herbs are you all smoking? Billups is with the Nuggets remember? LOL I keep laughing every time I hear his name mentioned in a Piston lineup. Billups was traded along with McDyess to the Nuggets for Iverson. Know the facts before posting a reply to the thread. :)

First off, why would the Lakers trade him, if their team is doing so great right now?

Durant is hype

Why would Lakers trade Kobe?
