News, observations and reader questions about the Sacramento Kings and the NBA.

Intriguing, but unlikely

OK, so admit it. When the severity of Andrew Bynum's knee injury was disclosed, with the Lakers young center expected to miss eight to 12 weeks - assuming there are no setbacks - the thought of Brad Miller switching jerseys looked pretty appealing. But any Kings-Lakers swap also appears pretty unlikely. My sources are telling me that although Mitch Kupchak wouldn't be opposed to a trade, and Phil Jackson always has affinity for skilled passers and shooters, the Lakers would be much more interested if Miller's hefty contract expired this offseason, which it doesn't. The longest-tenured King earns $11.3 million this year and $12.2 million in 2009-10. Lamar Odom, by contrast, who would be the major element in any potential Kings-Lakers swap, comes off the books this summer at $11.4 million. Kupchak and Geoff Petrie have a good relationship, though, so they'll probably keep talking.
