I wonder if we have a chance of trading for Artest and Bibby. But for Sac to do a trade with us they must likely want Odom. A deal that comes to mind would be Odom VRad for Artest and Bibby. Bibby is a solid scoring PG and Artest can score and Play good Defense and with those two no doubling Kobe. And if we can sign Magloire. Our starting line up could be.
PF Magloire or what FA we can get.
C Bynum Milm
PF Turiaf Cook
PG Farmar Williams Sasha
On the plus side if things go wrong Brown and Artest are in their last year so that means around 16 or 17 off the books leaving I think us offering around 10 mil if KG is a FA. But I doubt anything would go wrong, maybe we can offer Brown Cook for a better Big like Camby or some thing.
