The Lakers took another bite out of their bench, sending Chris Mihm to the Memphis Grizzlies for a very conditional second-round draft pick in 2013, a move that saves the team another $2.5 million in luxury taxes. Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said he hoped Mihm could find more minutes in Memphis and alluded to the need to decrease in-house tax ramifications. "Hopefully it's a chance for him to play," Jackson said of Mihm before turning to the financially driven part of the trade.

As he's watched Steve Nash throw crisp passes, direct the offense efficiently and take over the  ball-handling opportunities, Kobe Bryant admits: "I'm salivating. " Bryant knows Nash's presence will provide him easier scoring opportunities. It lessens his workload. It increases Bryant's chance to collect his sixth championship ring. Even though he's openly considering retiring once his contract expires after the 2013-14 season, Bryant may feel healthy and energetic enough to keep going because of Nash's arrival.

The Lakers' retooled inside game will continually be held up to standards of past success, a comparison that yields mildly intriguing statistical results, albeit 12 games into the season. Last season, Shaquille O'Neal and Karl Malone combined to average 34.7 points and 20.2 rebounds during the regular season. Throw in Devean George, who started a majority of the games at small forward, and the starting frontcourt averaged 42.1 points and 24.2 rebounds.

In his first game as the Lakers' successor to Shaquille O'Neal, Chris Mihm had 23 points and 12 rebounds last November in an 89-78 season-opening victory over the Denver Nuggets. It was only a tease. Mihm rarely matched those numbers again, the Lakers fell into disarray and the promise of opening night was a distant memory by season's end. Though he finished with career-high averages of 9.8 points, 6.7 rebounds and 24.9 minutes, Mihm indicated Saturday that a lack of structure hindered him.

The Lakers, enmeshed in a 2-1 series with the Phoenix Suns, might be without Chris Mihm the rest of the first round. The Laker center has experienced more soreness and swelling in the severely sprained right ankle that caused him to sit out 17 games toward the end of the regular season. He has been out all three Laker playoff games after playing 14 minutes in the regular-season finale against New Orleans. "In hindsight, that's where it got all flared up," Mihm said Friday.

Chris Mihm limped over to the treadmill and gingerly stepped onto it before the belt began to move, ever so slowly, never accelerating past a walk. The Laker center, sidelined since severely spraining his right foot March 12, has been undergoing therapy and treatment to try to return before the regular season ends April 19. He was told he was still four to five weeks away from healing, he said Thursday, with the results of a recent MRI exam continuing to linger in his mind.

The final phase of player movement in the NBA took place without the Lakers adding anyone else to their roster. They inquired about the availability of free-agent forward Joe Smith, but the Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly agreed to terms with him Tuesday night. Smith was waived by Oklahoma City last week. "We explored it and put in our two cents' worth," Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said Tuesday.

There was a time when Chris Mihm was the Lakers' starting center, when he was athletic and mobile. That was three years, three surgeries and countless frustrating moments ago. Mihm is back healthy, his surgically repaired right ankle no longer an issue. "I've been running around with a smile on my face," Mihm said. "That hasn't happened in two years." Mihm, 29, missed the 2006-07 season and has played in just 82 games the last three seasons.

He came into the game eager to beat his former team, and so he did. Gary Payton was only average, but Chris Mihm was more than that, scoring 19 points, taking 15 rebounds and leading the Lakers past the Boston Celtics, 104-95, in front of 18,997 Tuesday at Staples Center. Mihm, acquired by the Lakers last August as part of the Payton trade, arrived in Los Angeles an unknown entity, a former lottery pick who struggled in his first four pro seasons.

The Lakers can't quite make playoff plans yet. Neither can Chris Mihm. The Laker center has missed the last 15 games because of a severely sprained right ankle, although he is getting closer to returning to the court. Mihm still feels pain in the ankle, and it will continue to bother him when he returns, which he hopes will be Sunday against the Phoenix Suns, the Lakers' next-to-last game of the regular season.

The story of the Lakers and their big men -- one comes back, and one goes away for a while. Chris Mihm will be out three to four weeks because of a sore right Achilles' heel, leaving the Lakers with Kwame Brown and Andrew Bynum at center. In a pinch, Ronny Turiaf can also play the position. Mihm will undergo weekly sonar-wave treatment on the Achilles' heel, which is being affected by bursitis and inflammation, he said. Mihm has had his right ankle surgically repaired twice.
