Lakers Made Push For Daniel Gibson

The Lakers and Cavaliers finalized a trade last year on deadline deal, but it doesn't appear they'll do so again. According to Yannis Koutroupis of HoopsWorld, the Lakers made a push to acquire Daniel Gibson from the Cavs today, but couldn't put together a package to Cleveland's liking. Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio first reported this afternoon (via Twitter) that the Lakers were eyeing Gibson and D.J. Augustin of the Pacers.

Earlier today, we heard that the Lakers were shopping Steve Blake, Chris Duhon, Darius Morris, and Devin Ebanks in an effort to clear roster spots, cut costs, and land second-round picks. I would guess that the Lakers' offer to Cleveland included either Blake or Duhon, perhaps paired with one of the youngsters, but that's just my speculation.
