Default I'd take Kirelinko before Marion

They both make 13 million, Don't have a problem with Odom but AK47 would bring a whole new demension to our halfcourt D. Think about it when Bynum comes back him and AK47 in the paint would almost be impossible to score on. I like Odom and all the things he does but lets face it playoff time turns into alot of halfcourt sets. Imagine this 5 on the court at one time Bryant, Fisher,Ariza,Kirelinkoand Bynum. That is a halfcourt D that would be tough to score pts against!

I actually would agree with ryansrams.

AK would be a very good third option but I fear that a lot of the time in Utah he dissappears the same way Odom does.

If AK could average 16 ppg and still maintain the same defensive intensity I would definitely want him. However only in the same case as trading odom, only if we have a PF would I pull this trigger.

we have good team chemistry right now...no need to mess that up, especially when we're #1 in the west.

Lakerfreak's last point is very important. We have lots of
SFs...Tough to ask AK to play PF. I do like AK's game...but
we have to have a starting PF in place to make that trade.

That was with Bynum I the number 10 seed is only 4or 5 games behind the Lakers, not alot of room to play with.
