    noo but he wasn't practicing and cooperating with the team these players are getting paid millions to play ball even if they upset about getting traded they have to cooperate with there team and not decide to not go to practice.

    The $8.9M trade exception from the Odom-to-Mavs trade + $5.5M trade exception from the Vujacic-to-Nets trade last year will absorb Hedo Turkoglu's bad contract from the Magic.

    Andrew Bynum + 1st round pick (from Lakers via Dallas) swap for Dwight Howard.

    Waive Luke Walton under amnesty clause and pursue Chauncey Billups.

    Thank you Mitch Kupchak for this early Christmas gift.

    The Lakers will be getting a beast veteran PG who can play and has championship type mentality after beating the Lakers in '04 .

    By waiving Luke Walton that would free up some space and have some money to also pursue Samuel Dalembert or Nene as a PF or back-up Center .

    By the way this is looking the Lakers roster could be like this -

    Starters:

    Chauncey Billups

    Kobe Bryant

    Metta World Peace

    Pau Gasol (if not traded with Bynum)

    Howard

    Bench:

    Steve Blake/Derek Fisher

    Jason Kapono

    Hedo

    Nene/Samuel Dalembert

    Chris Daniels/Howard/Nene/Samuel Dalembert

    Smart looking Jim Buss .

    It's good for getting Dwight Howard, but if Dwight doesn't end up signing with L.A, then that will turn out to be an extremely stupid move. We will have to wait and see if this trade was worth the risk.

    Stupid trade for mavs. They take a guy with a hefty contract and are basically giving LA D12
