Also being shipped out of Chicago tonight is Mike Dunleavy. The Nets were close to acquiring Calderon before Los Angeles swooped in, Marc Stein of ESPN.com tweets.

Lol I told my buddy the Lakers would end up trading for this guy to clear space for the Bulls. They should pull their qualifying offer for Huertes though or however it’s spelled. I’m ok with then taking him on as a back up guard who is a veteran.

Not sure how this trade works, do Lakers have enough cap room to just take him with no one in return? Doesn’t work in trade machine, but sending back Russell does. 8))
