Default CBSsportsline throws out Kirilinko - Odom swap

Most interesting among the rumors heard Wednesday while chasing down the Kidd particulars was the one that involves the Lakers perhaps having one more move up their sleeve. It seems that despite his steady play, L.A. might have a desire for a more conventional small forward, dangling Lamar Odom in the process. Although Odom is having a terrific impact playing alongside Gasol, a source told CBSSports.com that another move could be in the works. Completely throwing it out there, but it would be interesting if the Jazz would set aside the stigma of dealing with a conference rival if it meant trading Andrei Kirilenko and saving on paying a couple of extra years of his large salary.

haha yeah sure they are... two teams in a heated battle in the same conference, as they are headed down the home stretch are not even gonna think along those lines little lone pick up the phones...

add that ak's contract is huge compared to odoms and that wouldn't serve the lakers well in the long run...

Normally I'd agree with you 100%, but with all the crazy deals going down, I only agree with you 98%

Im sure after man handling Pau from the Grizz the Western Conference wont be dealing with the Lakers anytime soon, especially a heated playoff contestant and a rival. For that fact, I dont know if alot of Eastern Conference teams would wanna trade with us either....

I agree that we as Laker fans need to calm down and quit throwing out trade scenarios (especially those involving LO) , .... But it's really hard to ignore and not respond to trade rumors that are being reported or talked about on sports news networks. (such as this rumor).

wow i really hope this doesnt happen. having lived in utah the past 3 years i've watched a.k. a lot and the only thing he would bring us on a nightly basis is probably more effort. but lately lamar has stepped up and is playing a lot better as a 3rd option. i say we just let this season play out and build our chemistry and see what happens.

The Laker gunship is wounded. We are playing very well. Once we get Ariza and Bynum back, we will be niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice with all of our weapons.

If it aint broke, don't freakin' fix it!
