would u do the trade? who would you pick with the 10 and 18 picks?
Yes, I would do that in a heart beat. Perhaps we could trade Pierce for a good PF or three good benchers.
If you're gonna just trade Pierce for a PF once he comes here, why not JUST trade Odom for the PF in the 1st place?
Because, assuming this trade would work the Lakers would get Banks (PG, which we need) who is a great defender and we'd also get a first round draft pick. Therefore this trade would open up many possibilities. First, we could draft a big man with our pick or picks instead of having to look at PG too. Trade Pierce for a big man. Or trade pierce for a few real good role players that come off the bench because we need a better bench.
