odom = wally ... same length of contract about the same value, wally shoots 3s and lamar is a playmaker
bynum + 19 = west + green + 5 ... we get two prospects in our hurting backcourt instead of one for our not all that impressive frontcourt.
ratliff = mckie ... ratliff is bigger but mckie will be paid for by the lakers
what we decide is just to fix our backcourt instead of the frontcourt.
if we get bynum our backcourt is going to be hurting. if we get green and west our front court is going to be lacking. pick your poison. either way we get $$$ room and players that could help and/or hopefully develop into better players. this way we actually get people who can shoot too.
