Another Big needed: Sasha for Turiaf 3 Way

Another Big needed: Sasha for Turiaf 3 Way

Postby Phil XI on Fri Nov 12, 2010 10:19 am

NY out: Turiaf, 1 mil cash
NY in: Songaila, LA 1st

Why for NY?
Gets them a desperately needed 1st for any Melo deal and another expirer who might be needed in a trade down the road at the deadline, or if they do trade away PFs like Randolph or Gallinari they have a competent backup. If they are wheeling dealing in the summer instead, they have 4 mil more cap room and a 1st to play with. With Mozgov playing reasonably and Amare getting the other C minutes, Turiaf is a nice-to-have not a need-to-have.


PHI out: Songaila
PHI in: Sasha, NY 2nd, 1 mil cash

Why for Phila?
They have an abundance of PF serviceable players (Brand, Speights, Nocioni, Young, Brackens, Battie) with zero need for Songaila. While Sasha would just be a backup backup SG, it gives them depth should they eventually move Iggy for a true C. The 1 mil cash more than covers the salary diff. Philly gave NOH their 2nd in a swap so they pick up what looks to be an improved pick for basically nothing.


LA out: Sasha, 1st, NYs 2nd
LA in: Turiaf

Why for LA?
1. Bynum insurance
2. Pau having to log 40+ minutes
3. Already knows the Triangle and plays both big slots
4. Save 3 mil cash of salary plus tax for Buss
5. Odom played all summer, will eventually need a break
6. Emergence of Killer Bs makes Sasha obsolete
7. No need for the picks – if options are picked up (plus Turiaf), LA has 13 under contract next year
8. Ratliff and DC - neither is enough for the challenge ahead
9. Bynum probably won’t be logging 30+ minutes for weeks, maybe months, and Turiaf makes a great 4th big for the playoffs
10. Helps potentially move Melo to the East, weakening the competition
11. Bynum insurance, never enough.

So the Lakers give up their most valuable expiring contract and two draft picks? One of them a 1st round pick?? Just for Turiaf??

Wow. Hell no.

If anything the Lakers would try a trade of Sasha for Turiaf and Walker. At least that one makes financial sense...

^ Wow I must of missed that. 2 draft picks and an expiring for a backup center who won't even play much when Bynum returns.

Yeah Pass.

:man3:

You would trade two draft picks one being a 1st rounder just to get a guy who won't play more than 10 minutes a game.

10 min per game as 4th big, but could play effective and serviceable 25-28 if called upon... and if Bynum's track record plays out Turiaf would be a 3rd big for long stretches and possibly the playoffs.

Odds on LA keeping that 1st are worse than 50/50. Traded or sold are probably the front runners based on a 95 mil payroll. Plus, LA will probably have at least 12 contracts already next year at this rate.

Most importantly, perhaps you guys missed the 10 VALID reasons why LA does it, above.
