While at a charity basketball game in Los Angeles this weekend, Jermaine O’Neal told SI.com that he wants to be a Laker.
“I would welcome a trade to the Lakers,” O’Neal told SI.com. “Indiana has given me the opportunity to establish myself as a really good player in this league, but they’re into rebuilding and going really young, and I’m just not in a position physically to go through another five to six years with a lot of losses and a lot of down time.”
The full story is available here. As a follow-up, O’Neal’s agent, Arn Tellem, told The Associated Press that O’Neal hasn’t requested a trade to the Lakers.
Looks like it’s time to fire up those trade rumors again…
