Yahoo!’s Marc Spears is reporting a deal in the works between the Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles Lakers and Minnesota Timberwolves-
“While Blazers holding it up, sources close to MIN-LAL-POR deal expect it to go down. Crawford to MIN, Blake to POR Beasley to LAL & more.”
The significance of this trade to Cleveland fans is this- the Lakers are trying to obtain Beasley to play small forward, and send two players out of Los Angeles in order to clear a roster spot for a new point guard.
If this deal goes through, it could very well open the door for a Ramon Sessions to LA move. That might also signal that the Lakers don’t intend to send a player back to the Cavs, meaning a draft pick would be coming Cleveland’s way and the Lakers would use their Odom trade exception.
