Memphis needs guards. GIve them Jordan, Sun and second round pick in 2010 back for Hakim. If they would trade Gasol for trash they would probably do that trade.

they let go of his rights by taking off the qualifying offer.

he is an unrestricted free agent.

Looks like Odom is going to Miami amid latest reports...

Lakers should look for a capable backup PF and Drew is going to Dallas. So Shelden Williams might be the best one available among free agents, and that's not good.

I'm sure Mitch will do something to find one. Bynum has to play a full season this year, no matter what. He's never done it, and needs to hold up for the entire year. You can count on injuries and depth is part of LA's strength. Losing Ariza & Odom and getting only Artest back makes us a less deeper team.
Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.

Trade.

We have no chance at Gooden to begin with, and Shelden Williams was more realistic anyways.

I would go after Bobby Jackson to replace Farmar. Then trade Farmar and Morrison for a backup big.

Is he a free agent? That sounds like a good idea to me.

I'd go after Diaw if Odom walks, but it will be tough to sell them on Morrison's expiring.

3 way deal? If Diaw is on the market that is.

Selling Warrick on a one year deal might be possible. Raise your stock in LA and wait for 2010 offers when teams don't land the fish they want. Ariza went from bust label to grabbed the MLE on a title winning team.

If Diaw were a free agent right now, would you offer him that $27 millon/3 years deal that we offered Odom? Because that's what Diaw is set to make. I don't think he's close to as good as Odom an definitely not worth that kind of money. Don't get me wrong, he's a good player but that's too much for him.

It's different when you're trading players for that salary. Adding the 9 million that Odom would get to our team puts us in hell, TRADING Morrison and salary (Farmar) for an equal salary keeps us right where we are now.

Diaw isn't Odom, but he's not a player you should underestimate.

With Charlotte: 15.1ppg, 5.9rpg, 4.9apg, 1spg, 1bpg on 49.5%FG and 41.9%3PT.

He'd be more than adequate.

Wow, I'm an idiot. Nevermind. :man10:

Ammo/Farmar/filler for Diaw would be absolute steal if we can't re-sign Lamar. But I don't see why Charlotte would want Ammo back again or why they'd want Farmar since they already have Felton and Augustin.

I'm just exploring possible options. It would definitely have to be a three way deal.

I know but they can still do sign and trade. No different LA doing S*T for Odom with Miami or someone.

THE MARKET DICTATES ODOM AT JUST OVER MLE ALA SHAWN MARION, ODOM IS NO BETTER THAN MARION, INFACT WHY DID MIAMI EVEN TRADE MARION IN THE FIRST PLACE, FOR JERMAINE ONIEL, WTHELL

Because Marion wants his touches and complains when he doesn't get them. LO is more than content if he doesn't get 5 shots a game. Apparently he just wants to start.

Expect the Lakers won't do that because it's Odom or nothing.

Warrick would be a great addition IF Odom departs. He's an athletic, agile, strong 4 that would give the bench a boost. If not, the savvy Smith will do.

smith isn't a bad 1 - 2 year rental with some dedication to really win a ring. i think it would be a good idea to have motivated players on the squad as well.

I doubt the Lakers could get one, let alone both.

Smith and Warrick are worth a good deal more than the vet's minimum. Smith might go for it if he wants a ring, but he had a chance last season and didn't take it so why would he now?
