- On 2/1/08 the Lakers acquired Pau Gasol from Memphis in exchange for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton and Aaron McKie.
- They lose Aaron McKie and possibly Chris Mihm who are worth a combined 6.7 million.
- The Laker GM also noted his inclusion of the unofficially retired Aaron McKie in the Gasol trade wasn't the first time he'd used that loophole.
- Aaron McKie was at the doctor getting his back checked out. No word yet as to what they learned, but as soon as we know, you will.
- Two players have been plucked from retirement -- Aaron McKie and Keith Van Horn -- to make two of the three trades work.
