Why trade for someone who can become an unrestricted free agent this summer? That's just silly. Amare isn't getting traded anywhere despite all the rumors that will come up the next couple weeks.

And he's going to get much less than the max this summer when he opts out.

Teams that are asking about him want him to sign a long term contract if they trade for him, thats what im reading in all of the rumors

Good luck with getting Amare to sign an extension, when he can just opt out and choose his destination this summer.

Amare won't sign a thing.

I really dont think he cares where he plays, it seems to me whoever gives him what he wants is where he will sign.

Chris Bosh for Andrew Bynum

Who knows what the hell Amare is thinking. He recently stated that he wouldn't mind playing for the lowly Nets.
A lot of Kings fans are calling for a Kevin Martin trade. I'm inclined to let it play out, unless something special came along.

The market for Martin -- rumored to be Houston, Phoenix, Dallas, Cleveland -- likely doesn't present great value. A Houston package with Landry might be enticing, but I don't know if that's asking too much or not enough.

I'm not sure what Martin is worth in a trade.

I wouldn't do that trade.

As far as Kevin Martin goes, I'd deal him just to get rid of his contract. People often confuse ability with opportunity. Martin's had the opportunity to be a #1 guy, and has put up numbers as a result. But in terms of being a contributor to a good team, he's not a #1 or #2 option. And it's just not going to work in the backcourt with Evans. I've been saying this since he got drafted.

Wow. Seriously? I love Bosh's game but I just dont see how you trade Bynum. Can the Warriors give you the #1 pick in the draft for Bynum if we get it????? Centers with his talent and youth are just impossible to find anymore.

so is Bosh defensive presence in the middle and his ability to finish. I think Lakers miss that part of the game. someone who can finish strong. Gasol? nope. Bynum? nope. Bryant? hardly. with the addition of Bosh will stregthen the team to another level. Bynum has already proven he cannot co-exist in the middle with Gasol. Are you going to keep Bynum for another 3 years while you can get Bosh now? i say if this trade opens i hope the lakers jump on it!

Wow. Again we differ. I would make that deal in a heartbeat. I just dont want to go another 10 years of undersized, and non talented centers. Bynum is still only 22 years old!

Bynum C
Randolph PF
Ellis SG
Curry PG

That would be an amazing and young group to build around. Just add another talented wing player and you have playoff contender year in and year out. Not that it will ever happen.

Bynum is slightly above average. He still looks lost to many games, and doesnt rebound like a 7 footer should. The sky is ceiling on this kid, but will he be motivated to reach for it...is another question.

I don't know if I would trade a #1 pick, but I would love to have Bynum on the team. He doesn't even need to be a dominant scoring center like Shaq was, but we would have that big inside presence that we'd been lacking for years.
I see why you guys keep coming up with Bynum trade scenarios, but he's not going anywhere. At 21, he knows how to be the big man on the floor. He just doesn't know how to share the paint with 1, sometimes 2, other 7 footers. On most other teams, he would be playing every game at the level he does when we see him light it up, occasionally.



Dr. Buss knows this and, IMO, he's going to be a Laker for a very long time.
