Avery: This Is Our Team Wednesday ...and Friday Too

If you bought tickets to next Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz (and the Evening of Russian Culture), expecting to see Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups in a Nets uniform, forget it.

Avery Johnson says unless the Lakers make Kobe Bryant available, "The team you're looking at here today is the team that's going to play Wednesday." As for Friday, he says the same thing: the team working out in San Francisco is the team that will be playing against Detroit.

As for reports that the three-team deal could down quickly, Johnson calls them "laughable".  Meanwhile, George Karl said before Nuggets' game vs. the Spurs that he didn’t have the info Johnson had to proclaim his team would be intact all week.
