"I'm a moron for thinking the Browns could even sniff 10 wins in a division where the other three teams (two of whom almost always make the playoffs) made the post-season last year. Gyp Rosetti's thee God of football knowledge." - Brown Notes
I think possibility of this trade to happen is very likely. Eric Bledsoe had been the target for most of the trade ideas on this board. I think LAC get enough of Odom, they have a good team and want to make a deep playoff run this year (win now team) and Odom is not helping this at all and they could discard Bledsoe to get rid of Odom. So get it done KOC.
Washingtons gm would ***** in your face if you proposed that trade.
They key is it's next year's 1st so they don't feel the brunt this season, especially knowing they should get a very high pick. They also get a 20/10 guy which they desperately need, his Bird Rights and lose Okafur's contract a year early.
We have young players at those positions who can use experience. Right now Lyles isn't getting it but I have confidence that he will be back on the floor rather soon. Favors is getting better, Exum is rounding into shape. We are not getting past the 2nd round, we are unlikely to get past the 1st round. None of the options listed or available change that in the slightest.
If Lakers really want to improve they will do this.
Bulls just want to let go of Boozer and Deng.
Raptors just want to get some wins - chances are higher with Gasol and Rip compared to Bargnani and Calderon.
Jazz .. just want to say bye bye to Al, getting Okur 2.0 and Jazz killers (you know how the Jazz want to get players who earns career highs against them. True story.)
almost similar trade. same reasons.
plus Jazz gets a PG prospect. but on the downside long contracts for Bargnani and Deng ... also this will help Lakers' chances in making some noise during playoffs (i truly believe if they don't trade somebody, they will be meh!)
