I'd love it if it happened. Exactly like the article says, he's a true 3 and he can shoot lights out, you get a quality player for Odom and a big body/6 fouls in Collins.

been sayin' it,

hope it happens

mike miller fills a need with two post players clogging the inside.

doesn't make much space for odom to get easy baskets by cutting through.

gotta have someone to kick it out to. that someone?... mike miller.
with all the ANKLE injuries, the lakers should change their name from the LOS ANGELES LAKERS to:

the "Los Ankleless Lakers!"

ahhhhhhhahahaha.

I'd do this deal because Miller is an underrated defender. It would leave us with a gaping whole at backup PF though.

Powell and Radmanovic wouldn't be that bad of a back up PF rotation but if one of our starting big men got injured, having both Radmanovic and Miller in the starting line up wouldn't work that well

I really like the idea of Miller at that 3 point line and playing the 3 position considering we have Ariza if we needed more D....

I'd hate to see Odom go but I think i could live through this one....




:mhihi:

What about Lamar Odom, Luke Walton, and Jordan Farmar for Mike Miller, Jason Collins, Corey Brewer, and Sebastian Telfair or Randy Foye?
I would do that trade.

Though Miller and Odom are equal in value, I think we should be getting back more with Odom's expiring.

very bad trade IMO, we should be getting more back for Odom, i think the only person for now we should trade Odom for is Tayshaun Prince who fits perfectly. but id keep Odom over Collins and Miller, we can amke Odom our main facilitator, Fisher as a deadeye spot up shooter, Kobe (no explanation needed), Pau with a great inside game who can also shoot some midrange, and Bynum, who scores at will inside, but no i would not do this trade, too many shooters already,

I tend to agree...bad trade for us...

Odom is not just our SF...he slides to PF and Gasol to C...that was we can manage to play without great depth in the front court.

If you trade Odom for Miller and Collins, suddenly Collins and Powell and Mihm have to actually play...and thats a desaster IMO.

We need defense as well...Miller, Vlad, Luke...3 matadors....I don't like the idea. I would rather get a good defender who can't shoot as well instead of a great shooter who can't defend.

Tayshaun Prince is ideal...thats the type of player we need. Not another banana defender.

this is the more interesting part of the article since that odom trade is never happening

Luke Walton has yet to receive the medical clearance necessary and is limited to working out on a treadmill. That's not a great sign for a guy who's really looking to prove himself with the Lakers this season. There's a golden opportunity for him to earn some big minutes at the three, but he's going to have to work harder than he has to date. Having an injury setback wouldn't be the best way to start the season.
