Default Lamar Odom

If the lakers are actually looking to move Odom, Raptors need to go out and get this him, perhaps a deal using TJ ford and ??

Odom and that massive contract for a career underachiever? No thanks. I'd rather keep Ford.

But would Ford be enough and is Odom what we need? After watching him in the NBA finals, I'm not sure.

I don't think they will add him. The main reason for this is because one of Colangelo's first orders of business was to trade a player who plays the game in a similar fashion; Charlie V.

A secondary reason would be that the Raptors should be looking to reduce redundancy rather than increase it.

Welcome to RF raptorsfan123!
Thanks!

and over the last year I havn't followed basketball as much in the past, but looking at his numbers over the last few years, he is a complete all around player and think he would compliment the front court in many ways.
He may have looked bad in the finals, ( to be fair alot of the lakers looked like shit ) but just based on season numbers it looks as though he would be a nice fit. minus the salary I guess

Hoopshype is reporting that he only has one more year -> the 08/09 season at 14M+
I thought it was longer than that.

At any rate, Odom is all sizzle, no steak.

He didn't even help Kobe. He didn't really do anything.

I agree. When the pressure was on he crumpled like a flimsy piece of tinfoil.

He didn't do anything? maybe not in the finals.. granted that is where is really does matter. The lakers won 57 games and i'm sure Odom was a big part of that.

Odom would also give the Raptors a pretty big mobile front court in a small eastern division, Which could be interesting to watch.

The issue is that the Lakers making the playoffs is a given. When your team has that much talent the goal is championship. Odom fell on his face.

The only thing attractive about him is that he's in the final year of his contract. Thats $14M off the books after the 08/09 season:

Why don't we go out and reacquire Charlie V? He's the same player, but younger and cheaper.
