Sam Smith talks about possible Lakers trade
NBA.com’s Sam Smith joined the show to talk about a possible trade for the Lakers.
Smith thinks that the best trade for the Lakers could be to Houston for point guard Kyle Lowry. They’d have to give up Pau Gasol, but they could probably get Luis Scola as part of the trade.
“One of the things about him, is that he’s a really tough guy,” Smith said. “You need a tough guy to play with Kobe.”
Smith said that right now, there’s no one in L.A. who will stand up to Kobe.
Smith also weighed in on Dwight Howard. He thinks the Magic very well may try to call Howard’s bluff and keep him there. But Smith said during All-Star weekend Howard really didn’t seem like he was into it.
Smith thinks that the Knicks have the chance to become the scary playoff team with Jeremy Lin.
