I think it would be more like, Stewart would be the piece and would LA be willing to settle for that. Likely no, so likely no deal. Having been following LA fans' comments on the JJ front for awhile, they have been really down on Brown this year and have questioned his leadership, apparently some scuttlebutt of Oshie-type lapses from last season. The fact they're so open to trading Brown (and have been for awhile) says he probably wouldn't be crazy expensive. Also that there's a power struggle in the locker room for leadership between Brown and Richards which Richards gets bolstered by the acquisition of Carter.

Sounds like either a classic case of change of scenery needed or potentially there's something of an issue with him. I don't think any of us really know the truth. Anyone trading for Brown is going to have to pay. But they face a very tough playoff fight given how tough their schedule is compared with their rivals (it's probably the toughest of those fighting for 8th), and he could be a casualty. It's going to be a wild 48 hours.
