Buss: No To Trade of Bynum, Gasol

Jim Buss now runs the Lakers, his father having stepped back. So if he says the Lakers aren't interested in trading Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol for Dwight Howard, that's a pretty good source.

In fact, Buss said that and more on Saturday the Los Angeles Times. "Where does this stuff come from? You'd have to be kind of silly to give up two All-Stars like that for Howard. Zero truth to it. We have never been asked for Andrew and Pau and we've never offered them. I think they know we'd either say no or they would sound crazy for asking."

Where did it come from? Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel, who wrote about Howard trade scenarios last Wednesday.

"The Magic have spoken with the Lakers about acquiring Bynum and Pau Gasol for Howard. They are waiting on the Lakers to make this happen," Schmitz reported.

Buss also made it seem like the Lakers aren't counting on Howard. "I don't understand the thinking that we need saving as a franchise," he said.
