    Default Orlando/Raps/Lakers

    To Orlando:

    TPE and second rounder
    or
    Evans and TPE

    To Toronto :

    Bynum
    Pietrus
    Hollins
    Sessions


    To Los Angeles :

    Calderon
    Barnes
    Gortat


    To Minnesota:

    Belinelli
    Dorsey


    To make any of this work I word give up Miami's 1st rounder, any second rounders, TPE
    Orlando wants to shed some of it's salary so TPE might work instead of Banks and they have a glut at SF (Reddick and Richarson)


    Minnesota needs shooters and probably would take more cap relief.

    I would also sign Rasho to the league minimum. You gotta love that guy

    Raps Line up:

    Bynum/ Rasho/ Alibi
    Andrea/ Amir/ Ed Davis
    Klieza/ Pietrus / Weems
    Barbosa/ DeMar/ Weems
    Jack/ Sessions


    I think this would be a playoff team!

    WHy on earth woul Orlando give up so much in a simple salary dump? If they were only interested in clearing salary, they wouldn't have signed Duhon and Richardson and then matched Redick's offer. I couldn't make it past that part.

    I read that Otis Thorpe wanted to dump some of their salary because they are way over the luxury tax threshold. He signed Duhon, and Richardson because it makes their team better, and they really like Reddick. He wants to shed some of the players that are redundant.

    Well, since Otis Smith is their GM, what Otis Thorpe wants, doesn't really matter. And I don't think simply giving away very good players is exactly what he was talking about. I think he might be open to trading Gortat for a smaller salaried player, but he's not giving away both Gortat and Pietrus, two rotation players, for nothing.

    This trade doesn't make sense if you're the Lakers & Magic, the Lakers have Blake & fisher, and the Magic are giving us Gortat & Pietrus for a trade exception and REGGIE EVANS?! Come on, you know this trade makes no sense.
    Left hand, right hand, it doesn't matter. I'm amphibious.
