Bynum, Artest, picks and possibly taking in Turk's contract could do it for D12.

Getting the best point guard in the NBA is horrible? To play with a top-5 player in Kobe? They'll figure something out in the front court. It's the Lakers, they somehow always get lucky when it comes to acquiring players.

They have 26Mil committed (once Paul is dealt) + the incoming salaries which off the top of my head is about 25Mil??

With this deal:

NO:

Jack/Dragic
Martin/
Odom/Ariza/Pondexter/Ewing Jr
Scola/Landry
Okafor/


Still a crap load of holes to fill. But not bad if they can add a couple decent pieces for depth.

Random thought, but I was just looking at Orlando's roster and they need to amnesty Arenas. Owed close to 60 million over the next 3 years, goddamn.

Odom has to be backing up Scola.

They'll be able to do something.

So.... who here still thinks that Paul didn't demand a trade from the Hornets? LOL... They seemed pretty damned anxious to move a guy "who's heart was in New Orleans and wanted to stay".

Classic smokescreen B.S.

Its going to hurt seeing CP3 in a Lakers jersey. But hes my 2nd favorite player so I cant cheer against him. I was really hoping he'd go to the Clippers or GSW.

This really makes no sense for Houston. If the Lakers can pull off whatever other moves they likely have planned they will have helped to improve 2 teams in their own conference and given up KMart (an efficient 23ppg perimeter scorer), Scola (18ppg and 8rpg), dragic and a pick for a Pau Gasol (17ppg and 8rpg) who is on the wrong side of 30.

won't help them... won't bring them under the cap or provide them any extra spending power. They just need to hope he rebounds.

I think the saying is "In the NBA, always trade your 4 quarters for a dollar." Hornets kind of went the opposite way, and probably filled more holes, but it's hard to say if they'll be able to really contend.

Don't get it for Houston at all. Must be something else. Morey always has something else.

Lakers shouldn't have much of a problem finding players willing to take less money to play for them, especially with Paul and Bryant there. It all comes down to Bynum's health.

David Aldridge is saying NO gets Scola, Martin, Dragic + 1st and 2nd round picks.

No Odom according to him. If so then Odom/Bynum + filler and a pick could do it to get Howard.

Fak. Well that's probably going to get it done then.

Still... hard to believe that another team out there couldn't come up with a better package.

He's the only one saying that, so who knows at this point.
