Chris Webber talks with the Lakers

I'm far from convinced this Chris Webber signing is in the bag -- especially after reading stuff like this in the L.A. Times:

Free-agent forward Chris Webber has become personally involved in talks with the Lakers about joining the club, according to his agent, Aaron Goodwin.

Webber spoke Saturday with Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak and was hoping to talk Saturday night to Coach Phil Jackson. Goodwin said he had talked Friday with Kupchak.

Playing time, not money, appears to be the issue for Webber with the Lakers, because two of the other four teams courting the 33-year-old power forward can offer him more money.

2 p.m. Tuesday. That's when this thing can become official, and until then I'm not holding my breath.
