Bynum, Crittenton, McKie (3mil-BO), Brown, Sasha for JO, Harrison?
That's barely enough going out for JO, may not enough for JO+Harrison.
Also it may not work for Buss financially because (1), the Lakers take back more in salary than they give; then (2), they still have to sign more vet min players to fill out the roster. These two factors together will lead to a bigger lux tax hit. And they've stripped out their depth at center to accompish this so there's no guarantee they even make it to the WCF's. Buss won't pay more lux tax hit for that.
I keep saying it over and over again, if JO is coming, then LO is going. Just no other way to make it work both roster-wise for Indy and financially for Lakers. Just have to keep Bynum out of the trade.
