Wednesday Chatstravaganza: Draft And Trade Rumors!

We're just about one earth rotation away from the start of the 2011 draft, and the rumors are kicking about furiously. Like the one where the Lakers are lusting for Anderson Varejao. Or the one where David Kahn has a fiendish plan to steal Andrew Bynum. Most of these are so thumpingly stupid that even I, the whoriest of page-view whores, can't bring myself to give them their own front-page posts, but that doesn't mean they're not fun to talk about. And really, what else do we have to do today. So this is your comprehensive, all-purpose thread to hash over, ridicule and argue for whatever trade and draft rumors you come across.

If you haven't done so already, make sure to study Ben's extremely thorough Laker draft preview here. You can also read my (much less informed) thoughts about the draft at SBN Los Angeles.

Go on, knock yourselves out!

Update with actual, non-rumory news (4:10 p.m.): The Lakers offered Lamar Odom to Minnesota for the number-two pick but were turned down. The hope was to draft Derrick Williams. (Via the LA Times.)

HIGHLY rumory update (4:40 p.m.): The Lakers and 76ers may be talking Lamar Odom for Andre Iguodala. Ron Artest could be included in the deal as well. I think I just pooped a little. (Via Sports Illustrated.)

From Eric Pincus of HOOPWORLD (5:05 p.m.): "FYI - Kobe loves, loves Iguodala. Share an agent. Very tight." (Via Twitter.)

Self-serving update (6:20 p.m.): I've posted some brief thoughts on Odom-for-Iguodala over at SBN Los Angeles.
