LO Trade Bait This Summer? (Sun-Sentinel p.16)

We all know that 14M per that Riley gave him is too extravagant and way overpriced for Odom. A 7-8M per season deal is just about right.

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.

Battier is decent. I rather have him over Milk Miller. Or we can get a defensive SG and slid Kobe to the SF position. Someone like.... Raja Bell?? :man1: Or just trade Lamar for Ron Artest. I'd go for that trade.

I heard Marion's ego is huge, do we really want to trade for an Odom clone who can make things bad in the locker room?

Now that's all i was told from a legit source who i met last night. It would be like the Ray Allen trade to Boston for Green. Now if you look at it the teams who will have high draft picks this year is:

Heat
Clippers
Sonics
Grizzles
Bobcats
Bucks
Knicks

There must be a player the lakers are tageting but who? Mayo, Love, Beasly, Gordon, Rose, its a great draft this year. If you think about it, it all makes sense Odom is gonna want another huge contract, but why give it to him when u got Bynum/Gasol/Kobe ? Like i said this is what i herd and i wanted 2 share with you, believe me or not, i dont make up BS.


The thing is, given how hard it is to pull off a trade in the NBA (barring this recent flurry of Gasol-inspired trades out west), I don't think even Mitch Kupchak knows with 100% certainty that LO will or won't be traded this summer. I'm sure we'll all concede that unless LO absolutely dominates in the playoffs, Mitch will have his ear to the ground on this.

That sounds pretty good, but another thing that could happen is the Blazers dont want another rookie, they need someone whos a Vet, maybe Odom for there top pick? Which could be 5-14? That would give them a good team.

Oden
Odom
Webster
Roy
Jack


You forgot Aldridge. Not happening unless its a three way and we get
Webster or Outlaw back. For those of you that say Odom isn't gonna get
shopped your wrong. Dude makes too much. That money needs to be freed
up to max out Drew and give Turiaf his extension.

It sure puts my mind at ease to know we will trade Lamar, but still have Luke and Radman. Nice extension to Luke and long term contract to Luke. I have no problem trading Odom for a high pick if a SF comes back as well.. Miller or Battier or someone like that. They have to move past Luke Walton and he is one who needs to go. I would see if Odom will take a paycut to 9 or 10 million and then try and give Luke and Radman away.

What's the obsession with Mike MIller?

We need some defense. If we are to trade Odom for anything, it'd be for a defensive oriented point guard. I like the Hinrich and Nocioni idea.

The Bulls have Hughes who is redundant to Hinrich, and Hughes has been producing well in their system, and is the least tradeable of the two. We Odom for Hinrich and trash.

With our MLE, we could sign Josh Childress, who is a defensive oriented small forward with a consistent mid-range J.

PG Hinrich/Farmar
SG Kobe/Sasha
SF Childress/Vladrad
PFGasol/Puke
C Bynum / Turiaf

I'd love that trade, and if the rumors are true about Larry Brown becoming the Chicago coach, I think he'd do it too.

i don't think so . maybe Andres Nocioni is the next Vladimir Radmanovic.
Jordan Farmar is palying better and better now. and if this trade become ture,i will be very sad because we lost Lamar Odom.

I thanked God the day I heard Crittenton was traded and I pray he never wears purple and gold again. Messageboard superstar and nothing else.

I also love that trade, Hinrich to me is the ideal Tri PG, he's tall, he can defend and he can shoot. Nocioni would also be a big upgrade from Luke.


And he can defend.

A high draft pick doesn't not equal 14 million dollars. If the Lakers are looking to save money, then there would have to be expiring contracts coming with the high picks.

The only teams that make any sense are the Heat, Sonics, and Grizzlies. They are the only teams that I see doing run 'n gun which Odom would excel in if he was a #2 or #1 guy. Unless the other teams are willing to adjust their style, I don't see them taking Odom.

I have two predictions...

1) Lamar Odom FOR Andres Nocioni and Chicago's First-Round Draft Pick

2) Lamar Odom FOR Bobby Simmons, Charlie Villanueva, and Milwaukee's First-Round Draft Pick

If the Lakers trade Lamar they are fools. Rid salary by getting rid of Radman, Luke and even Turiaf if need be. Odom has to stay.

Exactly Lamar is far from trade bait IMHO if he is willing to take a slight paycut after next season.

We need to shed Radman and Walton ASAP. They are complete dead weight on this team and provide us with absolutely nothing on the defensive end.

If he can contionue to play like this (and this time he might, with Gasol and the emergence of Bynum) - re-sign him. Still, it would be nice to take less money this time.

as good as odom and gasol play together why would we want to trade him.

dallas played a great game today and we still pulled it out mainly because of the huge play from the odom-gasol connection.

If Lamar plays even 60% of the games like this or the MONSTROUS rebounding games he had - he is here to stay. I pray that Bass sees that.

unfortunately to keep our team intact he would have to.

however, he is in the prime of his career and he knows his next contract after he gets this one will not be as big, so would he really be willing to take that paycut is what worries me.

if you think about it taking that paycut right now financially wise would be a horrible decision for him. but to stay in the purple and gold and win a chip, its what has to be done
