ESPN Chat: Parker for Odom?
Man alive, for a man that preaches and uses numbers as much as he does you'd think Hollinger would have a general awareness about players salaries. :cwm34:

John Hollinger: I got two Battier-for-Odom questions; the problem is somebody has to play the 3 for Hosuton. The Parker deal with Toronto is more interesting basketball-wise but nigh unworkable cap-wise.

BTW, I think this thread interesting too because I think this is the first time AP has been brought up in a trade discussion. ;)

Odom has an awful contract. Doesn't he make the same as Bosh? Screw that! lol

Raps are having trouble playing Bosh & Bargnani a the same time... just imagine if they had Odom as well...

AP's the glue to this team. Odom/Bosh/Bargs is a nice pipedream but I doubt itd work in our pick and roll offence. AP>Odom for the Raps. Odom's an underachiever anyway.

If the Lakers picked up AP theyd be a lock for the championship this year. Two 40+% 3ptFG shooters in AP and Fisher+their big 3+ their depth= :|:|:|

We already lost a glue guy in Garbo. No way we're losing Parker - and especially not for what Odom makes.

Claudius 02-06-2008 09:36 AM

And we'd probably lose the smartest player on our team. No.

Benzo 02-06-2008 09:38 AM

I would be kinda torn about a deal like this because I love AP. DOes Delfino and Kapono, make him somewhat expenadable though??

Odom would help on the boards...

....Bah I was just trying to play devils advocate, and I can't even bring myself to do it.

Superjudge 02-08-2008 09:03 AM

Odom is better.

However, he's also part of a BIGTIME team, he aint goin anyplace.

Sick, Wicked and Nasty! 02-08-2008 09:22 AM

Odom has skills but his head is not consistantly in it... Parker is the kind of steady veteran, smart player our young team needs. I dont' make that deal.

Superjudge 02-08-2008 09:23 AM

then you get fired for LUNACY!

pimpery 02-08-2008 02:00 PM

I prob wouldnt make this deal if it was possible... but i think too many fans are in love with our shooters, we need boards and inside presence so bad its not even funny, and we dont stand a chance at a deep run til we get them.
