tracy murray comes home

(Jun 26) TORONTO (CP) - The Toronto Raptors didn't need Kareem Rush, but saw his value.

The Raptors traded the University of Missouri guard, the 20th overall pick in the 2002 NBA draft Wednesday, along with little-used Tracy Murray to the Los Angeles Lakers for reserve point guard Lindsey Hunter and their first-round pick, Fresno State forward Chris Jefferies.

The move gives the Raptors a point guard and a backup veteran in Hunter, and more cash in their pockets.

Yeah, I saw the same story...still haven't seen a confirmation on ESPN's web site, but why should that surprise me? They are so slow when it comes to this stuff, I get the feeling there is only one guy running the web site with his finger up his nose and his head up his ***.

Tracy Murray has seen better days, this guy is just a throw-in...its obvious the Lakers really wanted Rush.

Ah well...wonder if Lindsay knew this before he picked up his option? He's overpaid anyway, considering his contribution this year to the Lakers. :rolleyes:

How many years is Murray under contract?

The Raptors, still stinging financially from last season's signing spree, save nearly $1 million US in the deal - $740,000 in the difference in salaries between Hunter and Murray and $220,000 between the two draft picks.
=============================================

Will murray be traded?

He is a 3pt specialist who could fit in, I feel he is on the move!

I thought the Lakers really wanted Woods, was that just a smoke screen to get Rush to slip?

Also it's pretty ironic how everyone said the Lakers couldn't get Woods, yet they could of traded their pick along with Hunter for him.

Rush/Kobe

Now the Hunter is gone th eonly PG left on the Lakers roster is Fisher. I'm guessing that Kobe will spend a lot of time as the backup PG with Kareem at the 2. Also if Devean George leaves the Lakers will need a back up 3. Rush should get about 20 minutes a game next year.

You can't have a back-up PG that starts. The Lakers will either sign or trade for a good PG. I heard a rumor flying around on this site that the Lakers are interested in signing Travis Best, well someone has to be interested in signing with the Lakers if we just traded our only back-up PG.:D

He's not going to be behind Kobe because Phil wants Kobe to play the 3.

You think the Lakers might start a Rookie? I'm not sure, especially going for the 4peat. They should stick with the "Core Four," Fisher, Fox, Kobe and Shaq in the srating lineup. Have Horry come off of the bench, as usual. And try to sign Malik Rose. Then, maybe next year they could try to start Rush.:D

Rush will be a backup-but when he and Kobe are in the game-Kobe will play 3

They aren't going to be able to sign Rose. If George, Mededvenko and Shaw come back there is no way they are going to be able to. And I see all 3 of them probably coming back. Which is just fine with me. Slava is a competent back-up for Shaq IMO.
