Here’s a released quote from Kings GM Dean Lombardi about the trade:
“It’s never easy to give up a player of Lubo’s caliber, but for the direction of this franchise, this exchange allows us to add two players who fit the long-term vision for this team,” Lombardi said. “We appreciate Lubo’s service and outstanding play these last seven years in Los Angeles. He was not only a great player for us, but a class act.”
That’s expected to be the only comment from Lombardi tonight. Lombardi, Stoll and Greene will be available for comment tomorrow.
