HoopsWorld: Lakers Make Push for Boobie Gibson

In a day where rumors have been few and far between for Cavaliers' fans, they finally get one they can sink their teeth into.

Yannis Koutroupis of HoopsWorld.com reports that the Lakers are looking for perimeter help and inquired about Daniel Gibson.

According to sources the Lakers made a push for Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson, but were not able to put together a deal to Cleveland's liking.

It's kind of shocking to me that the Lakers can't put a deal together for Gibson. Gibson hasn't played meaningful minutes in a game for about a month, and even when he was playing he wasn't really succeeding. To top it off, he's a free agent this offseason who is unlikely to re-sign in Cleveland. Seriously, just throw the Cavs a 2014-2016 conditional pick and I would think that gets it done.

My guess on this is that Chris Grant is trying to find a way to upgrade that first-round pick that the Lakers don't owe us if they miss the playoffs this season.
