Lamar Odom Most Likely To Be Dealt

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Although the Lakers did not make any major moves on draft day, Mike Bresnahan believes forward Lamar Odom will most likely be dealt.

Rumors about Odom getting shipped from the Lakers started at the beginning of the off-season, and the most well-known offer involved Odom going to Orlando. Many people want the Lakers acquire Dwight Howard from the Magic, and give up Odom and several other players as part of the deal.

The most recent trade possibility had the Lakers shipping Odom to Philadelphia with Luke Walton, and in return getting athletic forward Andre Iguodala. Then of course there are the rumors that have Odom being dealt to the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love.

Despite his vital role in the Lakers’ previous two championship teams and his stellar play as a role player, it seems as though the front office has decided to part ways with the 6-10 forward. Although the Lakers may get another star player if they deal Odom, his versatile skill-set is irreplaceable.

Odom can play any position on the court and if he is dealt to another team, the Lakers’ already lack-luster bench would become weaker. Lamar Odom has spent seven seasons with the Lakers, and in the 2010-11 season he won Sixth Man of the Year for his 14.4 ppg and 8.7 rpg.

With that being said, should Lamar Odom be traded or should the front office stick with the reigning Sixth Man? What’s your take Lakers Nation?

    NOT LAMAR LAKERS,WALTON SHOULD NOT BE TRADED HE SHOULD BE FIRED WHO WANTS SOMEONE THAT CANNOT PLAY BASKETBALL LIKE LUKE WHO

    With a new coach in Mike Brown and a new offensive scheme in place, Odom’s value as a Laker will only increase. I would not trade him, unless I acquire a top-notch point guard in return. Odom for Kevin Love is a bad trade. Dallas won this year mainly because of their bench. When the Lakers won two in a row, they had a stellar bench that was able to perform in crunch time. Trading Lamar would only serve to deplete this non-existent bench even further. Keep Odom for Pete’s sake.

    Amazing. We rid ourselves of a player every team wants. While signing players noone wants.

    It ain’t broke, what in the heck do you want to fix? This team have won the NBA title 2 years in a row. We wanted to three-peat. That did not happen. We should have kept the bench we had, our current bench did not get us to the NBA finals, where as the other bench got us a NBA championship.

    Don’t fix nothing that ain’t broke.

    We don’t need Howard, we have Bynum. We will be back on top this season, this team will not have the same problems as this season. Getting new teammates each year make it difficult for the team to gel and get comfortable with each other, this is called chemistry.

    Getting some other players might not fit the new system or even get along with current team members.

    It ain’t broke.

    The only acceptable trade that would take any of our core, needs to involve a superstar of Dwight Howard caliber. Iguodala? Really? I’d much rather keep the Lakers as is. Superstar point guard or Dwight Howard. That’s the only acceptable trade involving key players especially.
    I like Bynum, but c’mon, Dwight Howard, what is there to think about Jim Buss? Make it happen?

  • Dusty Rhodes

    If anybody is going to get traded, it should be “metta would peace” ron artest, luke walton, pau gasol or bynum. you don’t get rid of lamar odom. Gasol and artest did nothing in the dallas series. If they want to make a trade, make one that brings back trevor ariza.Ship “metta world peace” to new orleans.

  • Dasbigboy

    The only trade Odom should be in, is for a top point guard. That’s the Lakers true need. But Bynum might be better trade bait and Odom has proved his worth.

  • Alvin0029

    Trade somebody like Luke Walton or anyone else but not Lamar Odom

    Why would D Lakers wanna trade the NBA’s best Sixth Man, a player who contributes immensely on both ends of the court, a player whose versatility was instrumental in the Lakers’ and Team USA’s triumph’s in 2010. If Lakers wanna involve anyone in a deal, it should b the likes of Artest,Walton,Barnes,Brown,Blake and Fischer. Lamar Odom is a valuable member of the team

  • Westcoast0202

    Lamar needs to stay…Package Artest with a few more of those bench bums..Odom is a key player..if its not for Howaed then forget it

  • http://yahoo Coach Smith

    The “Lakers” should differently keep their core group together; K. Bryant, L. Odom, P. Gasol and A. Bynum. They are still three of the most athletic big(s) in the NBA. Keeping them together, keeps you in the playoff. Their are two positions of the first six they need to address; Point Guard and Small Forward. Let’s take the small forward position first. Artest can be replaced by Matt Barnes or make a trade sending Ron Artest packing, finding someone who can help spray the floor. The player that comes to mind is Prince from Detroit. Who’s younger, faster, more athletic ,still can defend, and is a better 3 point shooter. Plus he’s taller. So, we have M. Barnes and T. Prince at the three, not bad at all. At point we need a player(s)like Devin Harris, C. Paul or D. Williams would be very nice but at what cost. I would even negotiate with the Suns for Steve Nash, sending Brown (free agent any way). Steve Nash and Steve Blake wouldn’t be a bad choice. Both are good outside shooters and can defend at the point. The Lakers drafted a younger point guard who can learn from those two. They also need to address the bench players and salaries. Luke Walton, D. Fisher (front Office), Joe Smith, T. Ratcliff must go. The younger players must step up, if not move them to. Either way the bench must get younger and faster.
