if denver could get under the cap i would like this deal because kwame comes off the books next year. but with martin, melo, ai, and nene, they'll never be far enough under the cap for it to matter so they wind up trading a chance to win now with the (undeserving imo) dpoy as their starting center in order to start kwame (a mediocre starter at best) or harrison (a good backup at best) for one year.
it's great for la because it puts them in position to win immediately.
tougher to say for indi. they don't seem to be making progress as things are, so i guess a shakeup couldn't hurt. bynum makes them younger. odom is a slightly cheaper replacement for jermaine. they still really need guards, but i guess this is a start.
I think the Lakers went to Denver to trade Camby for Kwame earlier this summer. Didn't fly. I think Denver wanted either Farmar and a pick or atleast the pick. But no way they'd do it straight up. They're not that hard up for cap relief.
They'd be seriously idiotic to essentially give Camby up for nothing
well the numbers match up...but i just dont see this trade happening...it looks like that Lakers benefit from this trade but after this trade theyre not going to have any big men left, theyre going to cripple their bench. Indy is not too keen on trading away Williams or Granger, thats their future, theyre really high on those 2 players. Last, I dont see why Denver would trade Camby for Brown and Harrison, it doesnt make sense...this is clearly a one-sided trade, benefits the Lakers and only Lakers
