    Default Does Donnie value Odom more or Bynum?

    Since it seems like the Milkman is trying to take every asset the Lakers have if he had to compromise on a trade would he do it with Odom as the main piece or Bynum?

    Odom guarantees the Pacers to be in the hunt for the playoffs.

    Bynum potentially guarantees a contender in the future for the Pacers.

    In my opinion, Bynum. I always wanted Bynum. Not so much Odom. If we could get Bynum and Crittenton and would be extremely happy.

    I think the Lakers will add Farmar they can do it with Crittenton but i don't think they will wait for 30 days to do hold back their plan.

    I'm just waiting til the 11th when rumors will really start flying around.

    I have to assume (and hope) it's, no Bynum, no trade. I think they
    want Odom because he either helps them win games next year and
    stay at least mediocre as the youngsters gain experience and/or can
    be moved for other assets (guard talent and/or draft picks) either
    immediately or after next season.

    I understand holding out awhile for Bynum and Odom. But I'd do it
    for Bynum, Brown, Crittenden and filler. Wether Bird/Walsh will
    eventually give in and compromise, who knows.

    As an aside, I'm not sure who well LO would play in O'B's system as
    he seems at his best when he's handling the ball quite a bit in the
    'point forward' role.

    I sure hope he doesn't, but I wouldn't be surprised.

    But as I've said, it doesn't matter. This deal is dead.

    No one knows.

    My personal opinion is if he thinks Bynum can blossom into something special he'd value him over Odom.

    The deal's not dead.

    It's on hold as long as the Lakers are still in the KG sweepstakes.

    If another WC team (like Phoenix, Golden State or Dallas) land KG, then expect the Lakers to make a trade involving Bynum to land a marquee player in an attempt to compete/appease Kobe.

    Maybe that'll be a deal with the Pacers for JO, maybe not. Regardless, expect a lot more league player movement once the Wolves decide what to do with KG.

    I'm not sure it's just Walsh/Bird giving in. I'm pretty sure the Lakers are wanting to hold onto Bynum as well! The fact that he's been working out and trying to improve during the offseason is only more reason for the Lakers to want to hold on to him

    That sure sounds like it's dead to me. Perhaps some time in the future it will be resurrected in another form, but that's completely up to LA. In the mean time, we would be best served finding something else to obsess about. Like Stanko!

    Blanket is right, the Lakers are more focused on their primary target and thats KG.

    hopefully Donnie just accepts a Bynum/Farmar/Kwame/Future pick deal. he gets 3 young players that will fit the Pacers rebuilding plans not to mention a future pick!

    If you want my best guess, I'm starting to believe that neither KG or JO will be traded AT ALL.

    Edit: OK, the truth is I've thought that for a while now.

    We don't need Odom....He's no better than Danny, Bynum is unproven....the Lakers don''t have enough to trade for JO...

    Walsh values Bynum then Odom every other Lakers assets is farther down the line. He probably also favors Crittenden over Farmar , Javaris is bigger and a better defender a greater upside. Even with Bynum, Crittenden and Brown another 3.5 mil in contracts must be added by the Lakers (Cook) +a #1 as far as I'm concerned. Not a Cook fan but makes more sense than a resigned and waived McKie.

    Waiting 30 days is no problem to get Crittenden not Farmar.

    Kegboy, Kwame is a expiring contract which a team like the Pacers would value.

    Farmar might turn out to be just a role-player but a good 1 but the top prize is Bynum.

    Right! Because the KG situation will take most of the summer. And it would have to be Crittenden not Farmar because Critt could also play the two.

    Right now I think any trade with LA for JO has to include, Bynum, Crittenden, and a future #1. Whether it includes Brown and/or Odom remains to be seen.

    LA is our trade partner of choice only because of Bynum and his potential. Otherwise the NJ trade is much better.

    If that's the case dropping JO's $20M would be of more value than Kwame's $9M.

    If we just went by monetary value then we would just sign 14 players to the minimum.
