AM710 ESPN's Colin Cowherd mentioned that the Lakers may be discussing a deal that brings Hedo Turkoglu to the Lakers

I guess Lakers are preparing for a Miami superteam...I wonder what the deal could be?

I'd rather just keep Hedo Turkoglu instead of trading him for garbage. The Raptors aren't interested in a package of Sasha Vujacic and Luke Walton.

They need to sign T-Mac, Brad Miller, and Will Bynum

It will not be Bynum. Lakers would be helping the Raptors....


Its for cap relief for them. To have room to build Turk is a 9 million 4 years and Sasha Expires this year at 5.4 and luke is at four mill and expires sooner then turk. They could also buy them both out and only have their cap on for one season that way next season they completely clear the mess of Turks contract.

Brown S&T he wants to be a major part on a young roster.
Sasha
Luke

is a better possibility.

Turk can play 4 positions and including PG which is our weakest link. He's a big guy who would run the triangle amazingly. He would play hard to cause he would be going to a winner and competing for a ring.

You guys will save a lot of money with them. You guys need money to rebuild with. Even though Luke would be a great player to have around your young players to give them good work ethnics. I don't see Toronto keeping them. Trade chips or Buy outs.

Yea I would do that, But I lost all my respect for him after the way he did the Raps. You do not play just cause you aren't Ideal situation. I hope Bargs breaks out this season since Bosh and Turk screwed you guys.

The Raps have money to spend and don't need cap space in the near-term as they are rebuilding. I expect Turk will rebound (you obviously do too, or you wouldn't want him for anything). Why not play some games if there is not a legit offer.

Btw, it generally is a sign that your proposed deal is lopsided when you have to keep trying to convince fans of the other team to take it. Don't get me wrong, I realize Bynum isn't coming in return, but getting a draft pick and perhaps Brown would seem more realistic to me.

if he says he doesnt want a trade doesnt that mean he doesnt want to be traded?

The skill set that he brings to the table is highly coveted around the league. which is why the lakers want him! I'm sure somebody can offer us a better deal then 3 guys we wouldn't even play. it's just a ludicrous offer. thats all.

Yes it sucks that the Lakers are stuck with his contract but in his contract year he played great. He was everything Jackson wanted smart 3 guard that could the run the offense and shoot the 3. Now not so much injury riddled last 3 years.

1. Toronto should be trying to acquire Luke Walton. He likely is going to end up having back surgery. That very well could turn this into a Darius Miles situation. Toronto can get a doctor to see if this type of surgery is "career ending". If true, Walton's contract will be paid through insurance.

2. This might be the only chance to move Hedo.

Yes he does.

As pointed out earlier. Hedo is capable of playing 4 positions, his contract/salary become less of an issue on a team capable of winning a Championship. Turk's versatility is ideal for a Triangle Offense. He basically is a much better version of Luke Walton, when LA paid Walton a bunch of money. It allows LA to rotate Artest in and out of the lineup on the floor. Hedo's a better passer, ballhandler, and a better shooter IMO. Artest plays better defense.

You can put Hedo at PG in the Triangle.

Imagine the size of a lineup for maybe 5-8 minutes each game:

PG-Hedo
SG-Bryant
SF-Artest
PF-Gasol
C-Bynum

Incredible.

I'm just saying that Fisher contributions to this team is by far greater than Luke did before his contract! I like the Lakers chances winning a title without Luke than Fisher easily.

I think Sasha did for us in 08 was better than Luke did in his contract year.

You must be working in their FO to be so confident of that. I love how people on here talk as if they know exactly what their team is thinking. :facepalm:

Sasha is an expiring and may come in handy towards the trade deadline for your team. Luke....ok I see what you mean with Luke. Unless he is expiring too...Im not too sure if he is or not though.

I listened to him for about a year and couldn't put up with his biased views on the NBA or how often he misses with his take on NBA related issues. He should stick to football. Try listening to Dan Patrick, on 570am, he's much better than Colin.

If the Lakers can rid themselves of two people who aren't very productive and gain a versatile player like Hedo, then I'm all for it.

kobe/ shannon
fisher/ blake

means the lakers 2nd unit could make the playoffs by itself. the lakers would only need to give up luke and sasha because toronto wants to clean their hands of hedo and luke is probably retiring which means no effect salary wise and sasha is an expiring meaning they can start rebuilding

in LA hedo can be randy moss by being in the title hunt and turning on his 2009 form.

hopefully it happens

Hedo would be a great addition if he was willing to take a bench role. He could be our back up Kobe at the 2 and Ron at the 3 which would allow him to get a lot of mins. And in a pinch they can have him run the point. That would be great depth. Imagine Fisher, lamar, and hedo coming off the bench for us.....WOWWWW!

The biggest part of Hedo's game that everybody overlooks is his D. The guy is a VERY solid man defender. I would piss my pants if they signed him and didnt loose any of the top 7 (blake, fish, KB, Lamar, Pau, Bynum, Artest)

Im sayin though. Blake, Hedo and LO off the bench, with Gasol on the court is just brilliant like guiness.

Yeah it would basically be

Starters: Fish, Kobe, Ron, Pau, Drew
Bench: Blake, Kobe/Ron, Hedo, LO, Pau/Drew
Finish: Fish, Kobe, ???, LO, Pau

I'd guess Shannon would be signed and traded in the deal as well with Sasha's expiring and Luke.

only way Hedo goes to LA is a three way trade. toronto does not want any of that garbage.

Heck, if BC is not willing to get Beasley and Chalmers for Bosh, Lakers have no chance with Hedo in a straight trade.

Shannon Brown 4 mil S & T
Vujacic 4-5 mil expiring

for Turk 9mil

I'd do that trade!!

Then somehow find a way to get rid of calderone in the future, and do a total rebuild!

They aren't going to take on that long term contract. Where would he play? He'd only get 15 mpg behind Kobe/Artest.
