JULY 10TH, 11:10pm: The sign-and-trade sending Nash from the Suns to the Lakers in exchange for four draft picks is official, tweets Mike Trudell of Lakers.com. The Lakers confirmed the news in a press release.

JULY 4TH, 8:09pm: Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic tweets that the Suns will receive the Lakers' 2013 and 2015 first-round picks and their 2013 and 2014 second-round picks.

8:07pm: Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports updates Nash's contract to $27MM over three years. He adds in a separate tweet that the Suns receive $3MM in cash from the Lakers in the deal.

Considering Kobe has a ton of respect
For send and really likes him. It could be done with the bulls simply saying “the only way you get debt is if you take boozer and we get pau” this actually makes sense for the bulls because it rids them
Of pau who we all
Know kobe is done with, and they get deng who Kobe really likes.

Heck no, thats stupid, Boozer can’t play defense and isn’t as great offensively as Gasol. I trade Gasol to the Hawks for Josh Smith and Devin Harris or to the Wolves for Derrick Williams and then sign Beasley or trade for Pekovic.

Do you want a diva that’s not even sure he will be able to play at the start of the season and had major back surgery for a guy who has major potential and is two years younger and has title experience?
