Who on the Clipps, Bucks or Knicks is worth the #2 pick though? I mean who on those teams has as much potential as a guy like Beasly?

Does Riley love Odom that much? The only way this is feasible is if Riley is seriously wanting to clear capspace to sign Brand next year. Brand wants Miami and Miami wants Brand. But does Riley feel Brand next year will be better than anybody he can get at #2 in the draft this year?

Aside from Rose and Beasley, it doesn't seem like theres anyone in this years draft that can make an impact immediately. Riley does not seem to covet Beasley either and Rose seems to duplicate what Wade does. Hence it is possible BUT there are plenty of teams out there that can offer a better package. And on top of that, we get Haslem? Blount I can understand but Haslem is far from just a throw in player.

we would have awesome front-court depth with this line-up and if Ronny gets offered too much we could afford to lose him( :man5: ) also we can draft Beasley or Rose :man13:

WOW. I like Joe Alexander but you have to take Beasley man.

The gage is Beasley played against good competition, was the man on his team and he still put up astronomical numbers. You got to take him. In addition, Beasley could play SF and play it strong. He could shoot his butt off.

As for this unsubstantiated rumor, it may not be true but it makes sense. I checked and Haslem/Blount expire at the end of the 09/10 season. Now days, its not just the players you could put on the floor. Its needs/talent/ and contracts.

Joe Alexander, I'm sorry but I think you overrate him just a little.

Well those teams are shopping:
Clipps - Maggs & Brand in S&T (too big of contracts)
Bucks - Mo Williams, Yi, and Redd
Knicks - Rose and Lee

I'd gladly take Lee from the Knicks but I'm not sure there would be enough minutes up front to go around. I'm sure we could get D'Antoni to take Vlad if they were getting the #2. It would take including another team to give us something decent. Making it a 4 team deal which makes my idea even less likely.

Shouldn't we be getting more than Lee back?

I would personally look at trading the #2 along with Vlad or Luke to Memphis for Miller and their #5 and then draft Mayo if he's still available.

I don't think so. I never said he was near a top 2 talent, but teams are killing themselves trying to get into the top 2. If you can rob them and walk away with Alexander, that's a pretty good deal.

Lee will be a top 5 player from this draft, I could see him being the 3rd best player when it's all said and done. He has an amazing work ethic. He didn't grow up watching or playing basketball. He only averaged 1 point a game his freshman year, that just shows you have far he's come. He's the next Shawn Marion minus the ego.

True but this is almost like the Gasol trade, i don't see it happening at all. We dump Odom and get a franchise player and 2 good back ups. sounds way too good to be true.

I have been listening to ESPN radio for the last hour and heard nothing about this trade. I CALL B.S. A trade rumor of this magnitude involving the Lakers wouldve made the rounds by now.

that's a pure load of crap - but then if you said Kwame for Gasol I'd say the same thing :freak2:

When Beasley was 6'10" and not 6'7", I wouldnt even entertain this thread. But at 6'7" and some rumored lazy workouts, I dont doubt that Pat Riley may be shopping this pick. This trade would be nothing like the Odom trade. There is a very good chance that Odom is a better player for Miami than Beasley. Of course, it isnt that simple. Needs, talent, Contracts.

I think Beasley would be a beast. Again, he was the man on his college team and still got his, huge numbers. Imagine if he played on a team with Bynum, Gasol and Kobe. His FG% would be better than in college. This guy could shoot, put the ball on the floor and bang. What more do you want? The Lakers need one more player that could get his. That could create for others. Beasley fits that mold better than anyone beside Kobe.

Can he shoot from outside? That remains to be seen.

What are you talking about Beasly can shoot the midrange and he have three point range do your home work.

Beasley could shoot from outside. I wouldnt be pushing Beasley if I didnt think he provided what the Lakers need next year out of the SF position. He plays like a man, he could shoot out to the 3 (Better 3 point percentage than Kevin Durant), he could shoot mid range, he could create for himself. Lets put it this way, odom, Luke cant shoot from the outside and Radmanovic could shoot from the outside sometimes.
