Bynum and Gasol + TPE for Dwight and Hedo. Brilliant by LA.

Odom was only on $8.9m, so the TPE is that size at most. Turk is on $10.6m. The only way the TPE helps a Dwight trade is for like Jameer or Redick or someone else from a third team who earns less than Turk.

LA desperately needed to get rid of him. It was obvious that Odom was pissed off at the organization so I'm guessing the CP3 trade fell apart and they dealt with it another way. They probably think the TPE can help them acquire Dwight too.

No way the Lakers are trading Bynum and Pau for Dwight.

It will be Dwight + Turkoglu for Bynum + Ebanks + Picks that Dallas sent us

We will use the trade exception from Dallas to absorb Turk's contract and not send as much back. (TE is only 8ish mil, Turk is making more than that, thus trading Ebanks back)

My question to anyone: can the Lakers combine the Trade Exception they get from Dallas with the one they previous hold from Sasha Vujacic's trade last season?

Between the same two teams? Um hell no. Give me an example ill wait....

From Larry Coon's FAQ:


However, it is sometimes possible to reorganize these trades so that players technically are not aggregated. A good example of this occurred in 2004 when Houston traded Steve Francis, Cuttino Mobley and Kelvin Cato to Orlando for Tracy McGrady, Juwan Howard, Tyronn Lue and Reece Gaines. As a single trade, it could only be simultaneous since multiple players were moving each way. However, Houston was able to reorganize the trade into three separate trades. In one trade, they acquired McGrady and Gaines for Mobley and Cato. In another trade, they acquired Howard and Lue using an existing Traded Player exception from their earlier Glen Rice trade. That left them trading Francis essentially by himself for nothing, which generated a new Traded Player exception in the amount of Francis' base year value. From Orlando's perspective, it was a single, simultaneous three-for-four trade.

And the strange, strange saga rolls on.

After nearly a week of negotiations and one failed attempt by the Los Angeles Lakers to trade for Chris Paul in a three-way deal with the Houston Rockets which was blocked by the league, ESPN reports that the Lakers “have pulled out” of the Paul trade. The deal has “fallen apart” according to Yahoo! Sports. But what may be of even more interest is what comes next.

ESPN’s Marc Stein also reports that the Lakers will trade Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks for the trade exception they obtained in a sign and trade with New York for Tyson Chandler. Getting past the general insanity of the past two paragraphs is this: the Lakers are now in prime position to trade for Dwight Howard and take on Hedo Turkoglu‘s massive contract, a sticking point for any trade for Orlando.

Kaboom.

So the big loser in the short term is Paul, though it’s entirely likely that the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Clippers, or Golden State Warriors will come through with a significant offer for Paul to move him from New Orleans in the coming days. Meanwhile, Lamar Odom is on his way to the reigning NBA champions who feature an All-Star, Hall-of-Fame, Finals MVP player at his natural position. The Mavericks are going to have an entirely bizarre lineup this year, but they’re also going to have a tremendous amount of depth, even if they have no center.

To review: Mark Cuban blocks a trade for the Lakers to get Chris Paul, then inserts his team into conversations and winds up with Lamar Odom, using the trade exception he gained from letting his center go, which will allow the Lakers to pursue the best center in the league.

Sure, why not? At this point you could tell me the Lakers are trading for Marvin the Martian with Fruity Pebbles and two Laker Girls and I’d believe you. The strangest year in the NBA rolls on.

i could see pau going to houston for the same things and sending scola and bynum for dh and then the tpe for hedo, lakers would be set up good, houston would get what they want, only the league owned team on the outside looking in - i don't understand why the league owned team gm even cares?

Lakers TPE is not enough to acquire Hedo.

Wait, so the Mavs would buy out Odom this year or next year?

Change the thread title unless this is true. Geesh people! I read ESPN too and then I come here and think something's happened when it hasn't moved from the rumor I just read there :mad:

The only reason i would have pulled out of that trade is to use the amnesty on artest, trade lamar and if needed a draft pick to the 76ers for andre iguodala. After we do that i would trade for dwight, if that happened heres our rotation.

PG BLAKE, GOUDELOCK, AND MORRIS ANY OF THEM CAN START
SG KOBE AND MOVE DFISH TO BACKUP
SF ANDRE, BARNES, CAPONO
PF PAU, BYNUM OR DEREK CHARACTER DEPENDING ON TRADE FOR HOWARD
C DWIGHT AND ANYBODY THAT CAN PLAY BACKUP
IMO

P.S. SINCE WE PULLED OUT OF CP3 TRADE I SAY WE MAKE A LEGITIMENT ATTEMPT TP GET MONTA ELLIS OR STEPHEN CURRY BOTH ARE GOOD
Billups is available.

Even if the Lakers get dwight, they would still have to make moves to compete with Dallas and Miami. They are giving up too much size to get Dwight.

VOICE of reason through this all

RT @johnhollinger Any exception created by dealing Odom isn't big enough to take in Turkoglu. I'm not seeing LA's endgame here, nor why Dallas would help.

RT @MisterRudolph I can say that LAL trading Odom to Dallas takes them out of any Dwight trade conversation. OKC is now the favorite in the West.

LA will miss Odom when he's gone.

nope, more candies now for the children of LA. That fool is a pig when it comes to candy

Sources close to the situation tell ESPN that Clippers have emerged as "early frontrunner" to acquire CP3 now that Lakers out of running

Last step Mark, use that Amnesty on Haywood next offseason. That puts you in the drivers seat. Then just find a decent defensive center who doesn't command huge money

Wow how did he basically get Odom for nothing?

I don't get this at all. If they were gonna just trade Lamar Odom for cap space why send him to one of your competitors? Send him to Cleveland or Indiana or something.

You think Odom would want to go there?

After this season, he has a 2.4 mil buyout. If Dallas were to do this, along with Amnesty Haywood, they would have somewhere in the 20 mil range in cap space

He got Odom by letting Tyson Chandler leave for a ton of money instead just a bunch of money.

VIA ******,

This move was not necessarily for Howard, but rather to shed salary.

Don't get this for dallas though... Dirk + Odom upfront is weak on D. Odom won't be happy with paying 15-18 mins per game

Exactly.

I think Odom was probably upset that his name was in the rumor mill so much, and maybe he himself wanted out but it wasn't made public. Lakers shed some cash off their payroll instead of taking back long-term commitments.

Lol why would Odom be playing 15-18 mins only?
