Report: Lakers acquire Kwame Brown

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) – The Los Angeles Lakers have apparently
acquired restricted free agent center Kwame Brown from the Washington Wizards
in exchange for Caron Butler and either Chucky Atkins or Devean George.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the 23-year-old Brown will receive a two-
year guaranteed deal from the Lakers with the team holding an option for a
third season.

The deal, though, cannot be officially announced until the league moratorium
is lifted July 22.

Details to follow.
