As long as you have Kobe and Pau in training camp I'd imagine you'd be good, no?

However, if the guy just doesn't come at all, it sucks balls.
It's not like Kobe is going to go to his house and bring him to practice.
More likely, Kobe will go into berserk mode. He had an ultimatum because SHAQ was being lazy DURING SUMMER (although there was much more to it). And here's Odom who's not showing up in camp at all because his feelings were hurt.

It would hang over all preseason camp and possibly until he's traded. Kind of like Artest with Pacers when he asked for a trade and sat at home for months.
If that's where it was going, a trade makes sense.
Lakers just should've gotten more.
