LOS ANGELES - In a move that many Los Angeles Laker fans knew was coming, Sports Territory Magazine is reporting that the Lakers may be trading the 31-year-old, 6-foot-8-inch Luke Walton.

The Lakers management stated that they are currently in talks to send Walton (number 4), to the Washington Wizards who are presently the worst team in the NBA with a 1-9 record.

According to an unnamed publication based out on the Right Coast, the Wizards are trying to get another white player since out of all of the players on their team they only have one white player.

A spokesperson for the Wizards José "Flagrant Foul" Jibberjicky, 57, remarked that many of the white Washington Wizard season ticket holders have requested that they would like for the team to bring in another white player so that the team does not look like a fifth rate version of the Harlem Globetrotters.

Mr. Jibberjicky said that he tried to get Manu Ginobili from the San Antonio Spurs but that Spurs management said "No way José."

He then tried to get Steve Nash from the Phoenix Suns and the team replied with a "Are you frig-gin kid-din us?"

Jibberjicky said he even tried to see about the possibility of getting Dirk Nowitzki from the world champion Dallas Mavericks and owner Mark Cuban reportedly replied, "What the damn hell is wrong with you Joey? Have you lost your effen mind? I would not trade Dirk for the entire Wizards team, plus $100 million cash, plus 10 future number one draft choices, plus the Washington Monument!"

The Washington spokesperson finally hit pay dirt when he spoke to the Lakers. Jibberjicky wanted Pau Gasol, but they laughed in his face and offered to trade him Luke Walton instead.

POSTSCRIPT. So as of now the details are still being worked out but it does look like Luke Walton could be wearing a Washington Wizards uniform in the not to distant future. And the Wizards organization is thrilled because all that the Lakers organization is asking in return is a 13th round draft choice, $200 cash, and an 8 by 10 autographed photo of President Obama suitable for framing.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
