Kobe + filler to Suns
Marion, Barbosa, + filler + pick to LA.
Both teams win.
I'll do this deal in a heartbeat if I were the Suns. Kobe would love to play with Amare and Nash for the next 3+ years. LA would get a solid core of players with Odom, Marion, Bynum, and Barbosa.
I would refrain from that deal,Odom and Marion duplicate positions,Marion is NOT a SG and Marion gets too much money and provides too much on offense and defense to come of the bench
Adding Barbosa @ PG makes LA look like idiots for wasting 2 first rounders on PG's of the future
Phoenix is very cheap and would hate to add Kobe's 4 remaining years left on his deal when Marion's huge deal is up at the end of next season and they could resign him for a little cheaper
