Caron Butler, SF, Los Angeles Lakers
Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak took NBA writers to task for mentioning Butler's name in trade rumors before the draft, but a handful of GMs report that he's available.

He probably has to be if the Lakers are going to make any significant changes to their roster this summer. Right now, Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom are serving as the foundation. Butler, who many teams still covet, is the most expendable piece.

The Hornets and Bobcats have both shown a lot of interest in Butler.


Magloire has stated publicly and privately that he wants out of New Orleans. The Hornets granted Baron Davis his trade request near the trade deadline in February and appear to be willing to give Magloire the same courtesy.

Other teams, including the Knicks, Lakers, Timberwolves and Hawks, have shown interest in Magloire. He's a base-year player, meaning that any trade for Magloire probably cannot happen until July 29. But with it looking like the league may draw out the moratorium process anyway, that shouldn't be a big deterrent.

AFTER SEEING WHAT BOBBY SIMMONS JUST GOT, WE MIGHT AS WELL TRADE CARON, IM SURE HE WILL WANT SIMMONS MONEY, AND I DONT THINK HE IS WORTH 9 MILLION, SO IF WE COULD PULL SOMETHING AND LAND MAGLORIE AND SAY CLAXTON, FOR BUTLER AND FILLERS, ID SAY JUMP ON IT

You know, I've always liked Butler, and at times, he did and was able to co-exist with Kobe Bryant, but never with any of the other players. He's got legitimate value around the league and whatever it takes, if you can get some more of that value in return, why not pull it off?
