Default trade thought

I didn't see a trade thread, so sorry for making a new one (if there already was one).

I was just thinking the other day... granted, we should see how this season goes, but I think the team could be improved by a decent amount by trading bynum for an athletic wingman that can defend, create his own shot, etc... basically take some "creation" pressure off kobe, take some defensive pressure off of him, move Odom back to the 4 spot (more athletic than gasol, so better able to guard the new generation PF) while still keeping a post presence.

This is what I posted in a sixers forum:

"I was thinking about the Lakers the other day, and how they will

Not worrying about salaries, how does this trade sit with you?

Sixers get: Bynum, first round pick from Lakers

lakers get: Iggy, 1st and 2nd round picks from sixers

My thinking was this: your team has a glut of swingmen (granted, not as good as Iggy, but a glut nonetheless, and they are all young) and very few post players. the general thinking is that post players are the most valuable commodity in the league... so trade an up-and-coming star in the post for an up-and-coming star on the wings. Iggy isn't a good go-to player... imagine a front court of bynum and dalembert harrassing defenses, with louis williams, andre miller, thaddeus young, rodney stuckey/carney (whichever you have, I can never remember) on the wings. That is a solid team, IMO

Lakers still have their post presence with Gasol, but with Iggy they get better overall team defense, and a much more athletic lineup with Odom at the 4 (better able to guard the marions and amares and dirks than gasol or bynum) and Iggy at the 3.

I like it for both teams... what do you think? Only reason I have the sixers giving up two draft picks is for the aforementioned "fact" that post players are more valuable than swingmen"

what do you think? I'm not giving up on bynum at all.. just saying it may be a good move to enhance the team a little

How do you make the trade dollars work (CBA)? (sorry, I always have to think about whether the trade is realistic to some degree)

Personally, I would never trade a big with that kind of potential for a small... sorry.

NO, NO, NO ........... Sorry, but the Lakers will not give up Bynum. And, truthfully, I and a lot of people would be really p'd if they did!! .... BUT that's something I seriously doubt the Laker fans will have to think or worry about for a long time. Bynum is going to be a Laker for a long, long time!!!!

huh? bynum for iggy? errr no. this would probably go over better in the 76ers forum...

we need interior defense not more perimeter guys... pau is not a true big man, he's tall but not a true center like bynum...he's a forward

yeah,
I agree Andre Igoudala will be a great player(If he isn’t already)
But we have a stud in Bynum. It is just very hard to find a good big man these days. Especially, one who can rebound, shot block, play defense, and is athletic and could even pass.
You just cant give that up. IMO, you shouldn’t trade for big for small unless you are getting a Jordan/Kobe kinda guy.

I have no interest in moving Bynum for a small. I'd be hesitant to trade Bynum period except for a LBJ and we all know that isn't going to happen lol

Yea because the last thing the we need is some talent that won't get use to the triangle offense (ala Caron Butler), or needs hell of a time to assimilate into it.

If you haven't caught on already (with the departure of Shaq and scrub Kwame as the starter C), we need a player who can rack up the boards, stop players from driving inside the paint like its a stroll in the park, who can score at will in the post, and block shots.

That man is Bynum.

yeshoward is a beast on the boards, and is very good

but when you watch him play, his scoring ability, meaning his moves are subpar

whereas with bynum, i noticed that even though eveyone says he gets all his points from passes and put backs, he has a very UNDERRATED postgame, and it is developing exponentialy..

Well I think that Bynum will be a better offensive player. The defense is going to be the same between but Bynum has more moves on the floor (hook shots...etc) and I would think he's a better passer anyways which fits our system more.
