None of us know how the chemistry will change, how the ball will move, and how the general offense flows with Andrew coming back.
Sure I am open to moving Odom, but I really don't understand how anyone is definitively saying Odom has no chance to play the 3. And there's no logic in saying "since he couldn't play the 4, he won't be able to play the 3." What the Hell?
You look around at other 3's in the league. They are pretty good shooters or defenders, which Odom is not.
We either need a great shooter or defender at this position. You take away 1/2 of Pierce's game in the finals and we win. By inserting RJ, Artest, Battier... it probably be cheaper and more effective than Odom.
Like I said, I am open to trading him but just because he's not a deadeye shooter doesn't mean he can't be effective and efficient in this offense. He's shown over the course of his career that he has a midrange game, but he went away from that this year, especially towards the end of the playoffs.
