I'd really like to get Lamar Odom so here's one more deal that's a little confusing, but I'll try to simlify it.

Pacers get:
PF Lamar Odom (LAL)

Cavaliers get:
PF Troy Murphy (IND)
SG Sasha Vujacic (LAL)

Kings get:
C Zyndrunas Ilgauskas (CLE)
PF Leon Powe (CLE)

Lakers get:
SF Kevin Martin (SAC)
SG Delonte West (LAL)

Cavaliers get Troy and also get Vujacic who takes the backup SG place of West.

Kings get expiring contracts. They can keep Ilgauskas for the season as another starting center or buy him out. Powe is another option for them at PF as a backup.

Lakers are getting a lot for Odom. Martin is usually a SG, but with Kobe playing a ton of minutes starting, he can be a SF sixth man. He's taking the place of Odom. West can pick up time behind Kobe.

Again, it's not something I'd count on, but it's a pretty good deal. Everyone gets value.

Kings get boned. If they ever move Martin, they'll be expecting a lottery pick to be included in there somewhere, or a player of equal caliber at another position, not a bunch of expiring contracts.
