    Default Tor-lal

    Heard a rumor that Calderon will be traded for Duhon + Johnson-Odom.

    I personally think this is a bad trade, we should wait until the deadline so that Calderon can be packaged along with one of Amir and Davis for a star-caliber 3 (someone in the mold of Gay, Granger, or Luol Deng).

    If we persist on trading Calderon, I say pull this trigger instead.

    Toronto send Calderon + Amir + 2012 2nd rounder
    LAL send Ron Artest + Johnson Odom + Duhon (waived)

    We get a backup PG or a third stringer PG in Odom while Ron Artest can possibly solve our current solution at the 3 spot, he plays tough defense and can score the basket until Landry Fields prove that he can start for this team. Duhon will be waived so he can sign with a contender.

    The rumour was squashed really quickly. LA fans are trying to get rid of either Blake or Duhon or both since they suck. LA desperately needs a bench, and so someone thought Calderon to help backup Nash. Unfortunately, LA doesn't have the pieces to land Jose due to his $10M contract (plus his 10% trade kicker).

    Artest isn't really a BC type of player so I don't see it working.
