Another JO trade rumor?

A rumor was written about in the Sun blog that states another possibility is a trade between Toronto and the Lakers:

JO

for

Odom/Mihm/filler?

odom+mihm+yue for jo clears the checker.
i like it. imo, odom is better for us than marion. and if a team is going to go into the luxury tax (and not try to screw us with banks or whatever like miami will probably try to do) its the lakers. they're going for it. they're the type of team that makes the most sense to "risk" it. and they already have radman starting, ariza playing really well, plus luke is going to be healthy soon -- they have depth at the tree. and odom isnt seeing much time at the 4 like he was last year. with bynum and gasol both playing, moving odom could be the action that puts them over the top.

and i'd like to see jo get a shot at the ring.

I agree, but i've read in a few places that LA has wanted JO for years. He'd come off the bench probably at PF. Still, it seems highly unlikely that they would tinker that much with their lineup.

what do you mean "that much"? odom is a reserve and mihm doesn't play.

Yeah but they'd be giving up depth for an injury prone big. Makes no sense considering where they are in the standings.

wut is LA thinking. This trade gives them gives them 3 bigs. JO will be coming off the bench. The only reason why they would consider this trade is because of the way ariza is playing. Raps shouldnt do it. Mihm is useless and odom is good but he wouldnt be a great fit here.

I don't think this trade is a good fit for either sides. Doubt this will happen

LA won't do it. Their weaknesses are PG and a SF who they can put in the starting lineup (that is, with shooting). Something like Odom for Hinrich/Nocioni would make much more sense if they don't want to retain Odom this summer. Actually that would be a perfect trade for LA.

i think phil would like jo a lot. he's supposedly not comfortable with bynum's defense. he's even sat him at the end of games. and after gasol and bynum they don't have much at the 4/5. i seem to remember LA being after JO for ages.

radman's starting, ariza's playing really well now that he's healthy, and luke walton's coming back soon. i think the deal makes LAL better. and, imo, odom is a much better fit in toronto than marion.

Anyways... as rumours go i like this one. Odom can play the 3 and guard threes...he' snot quite the slasher i want but he's a smart, versatile, veteran player that wouldnt' need to be the star here...just contribute.

assuming that the odom and marion rumors are true, i'd love to know weather BC wants to bring in these guys with the view towards re-signing them or just letting them go at the end of the season.

^ if he just wants to let them go, might as well take marbury. doubtful marbury would make our draft pick much worse (both odom and marion could help us enough to win enough games to just miss the playoffs). i'd like marbury+gallianari

meh..I'd rather talk with Miami. Shawn Marion ftw. I heard Kobe will test free agency after his contract expires with the Lakers, are the Raps a nominee on his radar?

Maybe they'd like a run at LeBron.
Maybe losing Odom is losing depth, but gaining JO is gaining depth. Especially with how Ariza, Radmanovic might be played.
Odom is a player that soars when he has control of the ball. I don't know who watched the game yesterday but he absolutely impressed me going at Dwight Howard every possession.
He has length, and the rare PG skills for a 6'10'' SF. I want Odom. He's also an expiring.

On one hand, he might be disappointed to come to Toronto from LA. On the other hand, he wants to play because it's the last year of his contract, and he'd get time here.

Any improvement is appreciated!

I get the feeling Odom has felt so much burn and pressure of being Kobe's #2 for a while under the LA spotlight that he wouldn't mind a change of scenery.
