i assume none of them will be playing tonight right? so the lakers are going to be much more undermanned now.

so a win tonight per say?

Damn, i like this trade for the Lakers. Just goes to show how undermanned the Magic are up front.

I don't think anyone's ever gameplanned for Maurice Evans or Brian Cook. But I guess it gives a little more advantage to the Pacers simply due to bench depth.

Missed in this is that Bo Outlaw was released to make room on the Magic.

I always like Bo as a defender and rebounder.....does he have ANY game left?

Cook and Evans aren't much. It says they were looking for a big man and Cook fills that...which IMO thats a joke.

Good trade for L.A. Cook is weak despite his shooting ability. Just taking minutes from Bynum anyway. Ariza is a big potential guy but his defensive upside is what is most enticing. They don't lose much even if Ariza never pans out.

I think Orlando got the better end of that deal.
Evans is a SG/SF, which they desperately need (they start Keith Bogans for crying out loud)
Cook is another SF/PF who can shoot the ball and feed off Dwight Howard.

Ariza seems to me like a Bowen-super-lite. He's a good defender, but nothing more. Can't shoot, can't handle, can't bang. The Lakers can make good on him cause he doesn't need Kobe's ball, and can help on D.

Good trade both ways. Orlando gets the edge, IMO.

You may be right. All I keep thinking is how much I'd love to have somebody considered "superlite" in lots of things but specializing in defense. We are so hurting for defensive minded guys.
