John Carroll proposes a modest Spurs trade

This is copied from an insider article. I'd actually go for this, except I think I'd rather have a 2nd round pick than ANOTHER PG of the future, and with the rumors of Rasheed going to LA, this seems pretty plausible... "The San Antonio Spurs trade SG James Anderson to the Lakers for SF Troy Murphy and Darius Morris Why the teams should make this trade: Anderson has requested a trade because of his limited role and the emergence of Danny Green, and the Spurs are likely to grant him one. The Spurs will not tolerate players who do not want to be part of their team, and in his one-and-a-half years with the team, Anderson has never shot the ball well in his limited minutes. However, all is not yet lost for Anderson, who at 6-foot-6 was a tremendous scorer at Oklahoma State and could stretch the defenses with his 3-point shot. He's a tough kid who can create separation and get to the basket with ease. Anderson could become a topflight scorer off the bench for the Lakers, a poor man's version of Oklahoma City's James Harden. Currently, the Lakers have difficulty scoring points, and their bench is horrible. They rank 22nd in scoring at 93.1 ppg, and their bench is ranked 30th in the league, scoring just 21.2 ppg. Anderson could get more minutes and more opportunities to score and vastly improve the Lakers' bench. Murphy is a stretch 4 who can shoot 3-pointers and create space for Tim Duncan, and in time, Morris could be a nice backup point guard for the Spurs."
