Tuesday chat transcript: Trade talk is back!

Not surprisingly, a lackluster effort on Sunday followed by a 20-point defeat in Charlotte and Phil Jackson's abbreviated postgame media meet-and-greet has re-chummed the trade waters, calmed some after a 4-0 start to the road trip.

Ron Artest was a frequent subject of conversation as well, as is the play of the bench. Plenty of questions about what ails the Lakers, and how the issues can be addressed, too. Hopefully you saw it all happen live. Chat magic! If you missed it (or simply want to relive the hour), we've got you covered.

Here's the link to the transcript.
