Bosh for Odom?

Bosh for Odom?

Postby LezGoLakers on Tue Feb 03, 2009 7:11 pm

This trade may seem far-fetched, but I think it could work.

Lakers get: F/C Chris Bosh
Raptors get: F Lamar Odom, 2009 1st Round Pick

The contracts match up; Bosh is a free agent after 2010 and is making $16 million this year, while Odom is an expiring contract this year and makes $14.5 million. The pick allows Toronto to save some face (they could get Hansbrough at 29/30). The Raptors lose Odom's contract at the end of the season to go after a free agent (or two), while the Lakers get, well, Chris Bosh. I think it works for both sides.

Thoughts?

NO ROOM! Why do trades have to be blockbusters?

Buddy, there's always room. They thought there was no room for Odom, and look how that turned out. You go Fisher, Bryant, Vlad, Gasol, Bosh and bring Drew off the bench and give him 25-30 minutes.

If Drew is going to be the future of the organization, you can't stick people in front of him. His ceiling isn't even in sight right now, but taking him out of the starting lineup only hurts his chances of becoming great.
