* LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Lakers acquired Bill Bridges
and Mel Counts from the Philadelphia 76ers for Leroy Ellis and John
Q. Trapp in a National Basketball Association trade yesterday.
Bridges, a 6-foot-6 forward, boasts the rebounding strength of the
defending NBA champion Lakers. His average of 13.5 rebounds was
10th best in the league last season.
Counts, a 7-footer and a former Laker, has a career scoring
average of 9.5 points.
