What are your thoughts, who can they get for Odom before the trade deadline ???

I just think his contract is to big for this team since Lamar is now a 4th option. Behind Kobe, Bynum, and Gasol.sleepin4matty wrote:D1ZzY24 wrote:I doubt that he is being shopped.

I'd be very surprised if Odom was traded (this season or next) unless we markedly improve (see: Gasol Trade). He has repeatedly stated his desire to retire a Laker. He even went as far as saying that he may retire when his contract is up.
Not going to happen. Not after his resurgance since Gasol joined the team.hiptoclip wrote:From CBS Sportsline's Tony Mejia
Most interesting among the rumors heard Wednesday while chasing down the Kidd particulars was the one that involves the Lakers perhaps having one more move up their sleeve. It seems that despite his steady play, L.A. might have a desire for a more conventional small forward, dangling Lamar Odom in the process. Although Odom is having a terrific impact playing alongside Gasol, a source told CBSSports.com that another move could be in the works. Completely throwing it out there, but it would be interesting if the Jazz would set aside the stigma of dealing with a conference rival if it meant trading Andrei Kirilenko and saving on paying a couple of extra years of his large salary.

He wont even be 30 by the time his contract is up, theres plenty of teams out there willing to shell out 10+ for his service. I think the ideal SF is J. Smith, but I think with his #'s this year he'll probably demand MAX but if he was willing to accept a sign and trade say the one Odom signed 6/60 mill, Id take that in a heart beat.
