Trade 1
Bynum is having issues in LA with Phil Jackson over playing time. I wonder if LA would be willing to move Bynum.
Andrew Bynum has repeatedly showed strong displeasure at Phil Jackson in the media for his lack of playing time since coming back from injury.

“I haven’t talked to him,” Bynum said. “I want to be a Laker. This is where I got drafted. I stopped working out with other teams because I wanted to be a Laker. I knew Phil was going to be here. All he’s going to control for me is the amount of minutes I play. When I go out on the court, that’s me.”

Bynum already secured his wish when he signed a four-year contract extension last year worth $58 million.

For those that understand the triangle offense, would Murphy fit well in there? Bynum did sign a 4 year $58 million extension in the summer, which averages to about $14.5 million/season, which isnt cheap. But nevertheless, he is really young and has shown a lot of potential. I wonder how Hibbert and Bynum would play beside one another. This would give us some good low post scoring.

I was thinking of a Murphy (+filler) for Bynum trade

Trade 2
http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...tradeId=p92bsy It says that the trade if off by $25,000 but that would be fixed after swapping the picks
Ford + #13 pick for Cardinal + #6 pick

This would help us get Evans and Cardinal expires in the 2010 summer which give us relief, because Ford will pick up his player option to extend his contract till 2011.


This could leave us with a potential future of:
Evans
Rush
Granger
Bynum
Hibbert
