CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte Bobcats have sent struggling forward Adam Morrison and reserve Shannon Brown to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for forward Vladimir Radmanovic.
It's third trade the Bobcats have made this season in a roster shakeup under first-year coach Larry Brown.
Morrison was the third overall pick of the 2006 draft and managing partner Michael Jordan's first major move since buying into the Bobcats. But Morrison had failed to crack the starting lineup and his minutes had declined under Brown.
Morrison will give the Lakers an outside shooting threat, while the 6-foot-10 Radmanovic gives the Bobcats more depth up front.
