The Commercial Appeal has learned that the Grizzlies have traded Pau Gasol to the Los Angeles Lakers for center Kwame Brown, rookie guard Javaris Crittenton and first-round draft picks in 2008 and 2010.

Also today, a Grizzlies source said that forward Stromile Swift has been traded to the New Jersey Nets for center Jason Collins.

Laker fan responses from around the 'net are pretty much:

"How do you get a guy like that and give up Kwame Brown? I know there's
other players/picks in the deal, but that's a dream come true for Laker
fan."

first-round draft picks in 2008 and 2010.

This is fantastic.

Its to clear cap room for the future. Shit wasnt happening with Gasol so fuck him! He didnt wanna be here anyway.

Comically enough the deal also includes the NBA drafting rights to Gasol's brother Marc.

Yeah, you right, but you never know what can happen with that draft...and with the rest of the season. They got some decent new players, but not really any phenoms and then there is having to get along with One Man Band Kobe.
