Lakers Trade Radmanovic to Bobcats

Lakers have pulled a mid-season shocker by sending Vladmir Radmanovic to the Bobcats. I find it surprising that they’re willing to let go of one of their versatile big men, especially with Bynum out for the remainder of the regular season. They acquired struggling forward Adam Morrison and reserve guard Shannon Brown.

Jordan’s first major decision after becoming part owner with the final say on all basketball decisions was taking Morrison with the third overall pick in the 2006 draft.

The former Gonzaga star known in college for his shaggy hair and thin mustache never lived up to expectations, and had fallen out of favor with first-year coach Larry Brown. He was jettisoned for the 6-foot-10 Radmanovic, who was averaging 5.9 points and 2.5 rebounds a game with the Lakers. [NBA]
