Breaking News: Gasol to LA

Say it isn't so. My favorite Laker is going to Memphis. I will miss you Kwame!

Here's the scoop:

The Memphis Grizzlies will send Pau Gasol and a future second-round pick to the Lakers for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton, the unofficially retired Aaron McKie , the draft rights to Pau Gasol's brother Marc and future first-round picks in 2008 and 2010, NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

How much does this help LA? It certainly gives them a low post scoring option that can rebound which they are missing w/ Odom playing horribly this year (you think we have it bad w/ Diaw!) and Bynum's wandering knee cap....

Thoughts?

On the bright side, there's a new big ugly white dude w/ bad hair in LA. This has got to be a good sign for us....
