Send Odom and Farmar to NY for David Lee, Chris Duhon and Wilson Chandler.
Lee signs at 7.5 million (BYC- 3.75), Duhon counts for 6 million, Chandler counts 1.3 million = 11 million
LO signs at 9.5 million or more, Farmar counts for 1.9 = 11.4
Why NY: With the salary cap dropping in 2010, they won't be able to sign 2 max FA's, so getting LO is a good alternative. Duhon has an expiring contract, so resigning him in 2010 is unlikely and Farmar can be a cheap PG in NY's system for the future. They might let Lee walk anyway and Chandler has been dangled as trade bait all summer. LO would likely agree to playing in NY even if it means going to a losing team.
Why LA: While LO is more versatile than Lee, Lee is younger and is good but in a different way. Duhon would become a great option at the starting PG position and Chandler has immense upside and is a very good defender. Lakers would be downgrading at the PF, but upgrading at backup SG/SF and PG.
