No Mo: Cook and Evans for Trevor Ariza

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Lakers traded forwards Brian Cook and Maurice Evans to Orlando today for Trevor Ariza, an athletic 6-foot-7 swingman who made a name for himself when he played at UCLA.


Sad to see Mo going... no such love for Cookie since he can't defend anyone. We're getting back a 4th-year player who was named a starter for Orlando this year, but has yet to round into form after battling foot tendinitis. I remember him being pretty good on a lousy Knicks team his rookie year. Real explosive and a good defender at 6'-8" and will probably play mostly PF considering Luke and VladRad off the bench. Which means.. Luke is the new Ko-B?

Stephon Marbury said in Ariza's rookie season: "After watching him the first week of camp, we knew we had a steal." And don't question starbury because he has some damaging info on all y'all motherfuckers.

some lingering rumors about ariza's foot problems scare me a bit. we'll have to wait and see if he gets some time soon.

He went to to Weschester H.S., so he probably hooped around the local courts. Close friends with Ze Baron.

I hope he has that spontaneous pneumothorax under control. It cost him 3 games at UCLA.
