If we don't win it all and one of the glaring weakness identified is our SF spot, then LO is trade bait till next season's deadline (just like Marion).
Or it could be that they are really serious about limiting the luxury tax they pay. Which means they will just let Odom play out next season irregardless of what happens this year. Then Ariza, Radmanovic and Luke becomes our SF triumvirate. Gasol plays full time PF and Bynum the full time center.
Anything around $10 mil is fair value. But even at that price, the Lakers will end up paying more for being over the cap.
