Lakers Offering Odom for Jermaine O Neal

Well i just stumbled onto this article. Not shure if it was already posted up but it sounds interesting.

Quote:
While many league executives figured Jermaine O’Neal would be heading to Miami for Shawn Marion any day now, it now seems there is a new front runner in obtaining the services of the big man. The Toronto Sun reports today that the Los Angeles Lakers have contacted the Raptors about offering forward Lamar Odom and his expiring contract for O’Neal.

The Lakers, who had at one time attempted to land O’Neal when he was a member of the Pacers, are obviously not completely sold on the prospects of a Bynum and Gasol front court in the postseason, and this move could help both teams now and later.

If the Heat do not land O’Neal, their plan B seems to be targeted around Kings’ big man Brad Miller or Mavericks forward Josh Howard.

A Howard-for-Shawn Marion swap may get some buzz around the net, but Dallas reportedly is not interested. Meanwhile, Sacramento, who had originally looked to Charlotte for a deal for Miller, may wait a few more weeks to see who comes up with the best package for the veteran center.

Article from June 2007 about Lakers Pacers trade

Quote:
he Los Angeles Lakers and the Indiana Pacers have stalled on trade talks involving six-time All-Star Jermaine O'Neal because the Lakers do not want to give up both Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom in a swap for O'Neal and power forward Troy Murphy, a source said.
The Lakers would also include Kwame Brown in the trade.
Numerous sources have said O'Neal wants to play in L.A.

We are asking a lot less then the Pacers did for oneal this time around, maby they will be willing to get him just in time for the play offs.

As far as I'm concerned, any change is an improvement right now. Especially in the small forward realm.

The deal is apparently:

Odom/Mihm (16.65mil)

for JO (21MIL)

Doesn't seem to add up at all. We'd have to get more, or a draft pick.

I hope that BC had someone leak this to the media in hopes that we can get Marion without Banks and his contract.

i think it does match up... it has to be within 25%, right? (or ist it 15%...?)

so, based on $21 mil, a deal would have to be within $5.25, which this one would be.

If the Lakers want the trade to go through they would have to add about 400k more but this would mean they will be $5 mil more over the luxury

If that's the case, i say we do it and then bring back Delfino.

essentially Odom/Mihm/Delfino for JO!

Fuck thatt

Odom is avg 7 and 6....

Marion is avg 12 and 9 with a shitty PG.

I'd rather take Marion... He's a better slasher then Odom...

I feel bad for Odom too... He has chance to win title this year with Lakers, and he might end up in Toronto? lol poor guy

Odoms avging 7 and 6 because hes off t he bench and hasnt gotten as many touches. Hes been big vs the betetr teams this year anyway and people already know what he can do. Hes still a 14 and 8 guy at least starting for many teams.

I dont think hed be a great fit here but hed still start in a lot of other places for sure.

Odom plays best at PF not SF.

Although he just hasnt worked out off the bench in LA.

If we could somehow squeeze Vujacic as well as Odom and Mihm for JO and Moon I would take it.

Raps would be only team in history to have 3 or more PF in the starting lineup...

How are they not content with Gasol and Bynum in the front?

Marion does too.

I'd slightly favour Marion just because he has been a bit more consistent as of late, but Odom is a nice talented piece as well, and a big upgrade for us as well.

nothing's ever a done deal...especially rumors on the forum...it's a done deal when you turn on the score, tsn, or sportsnet and you see: "Toronto Raptors Jermaine O'Neal has been traded for (fill blank here)" ...and i hope that happens soon
