Default Re: Team News: Kupchak might be Lakers' true superhero

The credit you need to give Kupchak is for being a part of devising these complex trades. A 4 team trade is not something easy to get done. You have to get approval from every team and every team has to get what they want. In this particular deal, every team got what they wanted. Even Orlando. Now I know you guys are going to say that Orlando got screwed. But they got what they wanted. Cap relief, picks and a brand new start. They get their own lottery pick plus all the other draft picks from the trade. They didnt want Bynum long term bc he was viewed as a risk and they didnt want Brook Lopez for a max deal.
