This trade was tossed in twice (once in late May and once Now) by two different lakers posters (clublakers and doormat on rgm) and blew up with overwhelming approval from Magic, Lakers, and neutral fans, both times it was posted.
Wanted to see what this board thinks?
out: Lamar Odom
in: Jameer Nelson, Ryan Anderson
- gives LA a true solid Pg they need and a stretch four to open up the middle for Drew/Pau, also gets LA younger as Nelson 3 yrs younger than Odom and Anderson is 9 yrs younger - both are under contract two more seasons. Laker fans on rgm loved it provided two things happen, Blake is traded and a big is signed for insurance.
- for Orlando, gives them a versatile proven piece to show D12 they are committed to winning, a second rebounder, gives the minutes for Arenas whom they appear to be vested in and want to get their moneys worth, and changes Hedo's role for the positive. Magic fans loved it to try and save D12 and liked the Gil, Hedo, Odom, Dwight potential to challenge Miami, Chicago.
