Default LO or Hedo

Now that VC is headed to the Magic for big bucks..Could this spell Hedo Turkoglu could be available and if so would we take him over LO. Your thoughts please...

I would love to have Hedo and Ariza rather then LO and Ariza...

Hedo would be looking for about 10-12 mil

Do it Mitch...

We're not under the salary cap. We can't just sign Hedo to a 10-12 million dollar contract.

Give me Lamar every day of the week.

Everybody knows that Jerry Buss will pay LT so, yes we can sign Hedo and let LO go. If you remember in an interview during the Finals with Kobe he said great things about Hedo that made me feel that he wants this guy on the squad. Plus, didn't Kobe say he wouldn't opt out this year.

Lakers got 3mil from NY for 29th pick plus Kobe saved Jerry money by not opt out...Some fans thinks the extra money is to resign LO,Ariza and
SB but I think it also could be for Ariza, Hedo and SB...

I love Hedo but I think LO creates more of a matchup problem for the opposition. Prefer LO but as a "consolation prize" I'll take Hedo.

Lamar because he's a better defender/rebounder, and is a pretty decent scorer as well.

There's a little matter of the CBA involved here. We cannot just sign Hedo, we are over the cap, actually we are WAY OVER the cap...lol

the only way we could sign him as a free agent is if we were roughly 12 million under the cap and since our Lakers are around 15 million over there's no way that's happening.

now we could get hedo by a sign and trade but if the magic were willing to take on another 12 mill in salary why wouldn't they just sign him and keep him? what do the Lakers have that they would want for that kind of money?

why mess with something that not broken. even if there was no CBA and we could sign him why? someone saying the payroll will be around 100 million.... with 30 million in taxes... you are talking about 8 more million this year alone give or take.

Hell No, and this is commin from someone who repeatedly posted that Hedo was a superstar last season. I really support that cat. But I would much rather have Lo.

If we are in some fantasy world,sure, both and lets see, have D-ron and birdman too. And Elgin Baylor so he can get a ring too...

A vote for Lamar is a freeking vote for CANDY. You don't vote for candy YOU MAKE EVERY CHILD IN THE WORLD CRY!

The Lakers would not be better off with Hedo. Lamar Odom is more versatile and plays better defense. And how you fund this player, I do not know with the rules of the collective bargaining agreement.
