Polladaday: Lakers Trade?

After the Lakers’ loss last night, tons of speculation is flying around regarding who’s on their way out of L.A. Which guy should the front office be looking to move ASAP?

Who should the Lakers be looking to trade?

    They should go after Dwight Howard and Andre Iguodala, get rid of Bynum, Gasol, and Artest.

  • vic21

    Bynum of course, unproductive, big ego, thinks he’s wilt chamberlain when really he’s sam bowie 2.0, I would trade him for Greg Oden

  • http://bulls.com airs

    bynum. has there ever been a player as highly touted that has played so scarcely?
    i mean, ppl kept saying he’s the key to the lakers winning the championship when he missed so many games.

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com Seth

    If they’re gonna chase Dwight, they might as well trade Bynum, and they could probably settle for 50 cents on the dollar too. The guy is always hurt.

  • add

    yo if the lakers wanna give up bynum i’d be fine with givin up dre, no offense to dre

  • http://www.bulls.com Rigo Gonzalez

    Bynum for sure.

  • kos87

    As many as possible of the mentioned players!

  • Lawrence

    They should make a trade that includes bynum, barnes and blake..

  • Double J

    It all really depends on what we get in return. If we chase down Howard then Bynum should be our key asset for the Magic. I honestly believe we should keep Lamar tho, picking up D12 and putting him down at the 4 is perfect if we can trade Pau for an Iguodala like player or solid point guard.

  • tom

    bynum and/or artest is the only logic move. as long as they have kobe huge contract they are not flexible enough (for cp3) on free agents

  • tom

    why should orlando take bynum?

  • http:jayemmbee23.tumblr.com Clutch Performer

    anyone not named kobe
    bynum gasol to orlando for d12
    artest,brown/odom for igoudala
    and get rid of fish for young blood

  • http://bulls.com airs

    orl should take bynum cuz they’re most likely gonna lose dwight to free agency.
    so instead of having a gaping hole at the 5 spot why not do a sign and trade and get bynum in return.

  • Lawrence

    why are people so interested to have iguodala?iguodala is only a flashy high flyer!to acquire Howard is the best move for the lakers…

  • Ronan

    Is Bynum going to Miami? He Lebronishly took off his jersey yesterday..

  • Kas

    I think we need an athletic point guard. Sure the bigs sucked this playoffs, but they are capable of dominating. Fisher is a great veteran presence but not a starting Pg for a championship team.

  • corey

    Andrew is weak now

  • Price

    Get rubio. Since fish is gone and Phil’s not there they can maybe run their offense a little bit. I dunno maybe Bynum for Rubio and Anthony Randolph then move Randolph and barnes for Oden. They could start Pau Lamar Ebanks Kobe Rubio. Artest and Oden off the bench for defense or maybe I play 2k11 too much.

  • giogolo

    ^yes you play too much.

  • Yesse

    I would say Gasol, but i definetly want Bynum out of the team because of they way he took the loss.

  • AD

    why would dwight sign wit da lakers they have no pg….. Dwight is teaming up wit da nets

  • Red Star

    Stll in shock the Lakers are gone!! This sucks!! Only keep Kobe and trade all the others away!! This really hurts, I can’t imagine what Kobe is going through right now but my heart goes out to him! Laker 4 Life!! Kobe!!

  • rainman10

    Dwight Howard isn’t going to LA.
    The Magic are going to trade and get Chris Paul. It was close to happening before, and it will happen soon.

  • floe

    trade kobe while he’s still worth something. he’s past his prime.

  • robb

    Bynum take your classless sh*t someplace else!

  • KSupreme

    Put Bynum, Pau, Artest, Blake, Odom on the chopping block for Dwight, DWill or Chris Paul, everyone will walk away with something

  • http://slamonline.com Tae

    Why tha hell is everyone saying get andre? He is not all that and Howard? No. I would take Gasol and Bynum over Howard anyday. All tha starters should stay, and clean out tha bench. Odom can stay too but its crazy how people are writing off Gasol, Odom and Bynum

  • ionmic

    Lakers should consider having a chat to memphis about some guy called Rudy Gay if they could get Dwight,Rudy Gay and CP3 over the next couple of seasons they would be set.


    Bynum. I’ve said it countless times that he is the most overrated player n the L. And last nights debacle should b further proof for Doc Buss that its time 2 get rid of him

  • http://www.englishman.com Englishman

    Maybe only kobe is safe if they can get the right peices in return,get rid of bynum or bynum and pau for D12 move LO to the starting 4, try get igoudala or who ever said rudy gay good shout because the lakers have no athletecism out on the wing and kobe aint getting any younger. Love D-Fish but he should come off the bench or join the coaching staff soon if they could get jameer nelson or another solid atrting PG they would be ncie but what happened this year was alot of teams improved through free agency/trades or just with their group of guys and the Lakers thought they could coast and get by. They are too big a ball club and have too huge a market not to have a team that will always be there though so I guess theyll make the relevant changes!

  • Red Star

    @Tae, your right!!!

  • Hanoon

    does the lakers want a bargnani :D ??

  • Jer Boi

    just trade Kobe

  • WallandRondo

    trade Kobe

  • http://slamonline.com Tae

    @Red Star, thank u. I knew i wasnt tha only one

  • Henry

    As much as Bynum’s play has impressed me down the stretch of the season, you’d have to be out of your mind not to trade him for Howard in a heartbeat.

    Pau is in a slump- I’ll admit I’ve never been his biggest supporter, but he will bounce back. Trade for Dwight and, if possible, J.J Reddick- as these playoffs have shown, 3-point shooting is a major weakness for the Lakers at this point.

    As long as Kobe’s on the roster, the Lakers are going to run the triangle. An offensive-minded point guard is not only unnecessary, but counterproductive. Given his past with the team, Fisher deserves to stay until he retires (which, hopefully, is soon).

  • martin

    people keep saying trade bynum for howard but you should also look at that trade from magic’s point of view

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    If the Magic ‘know’ Dwight is going to walk – dropping out of the first round can do that to a man…. then they will settle for anything/anyone in return (for as close to value as they can get).

  • Lakers Suck

    All of them espacily Kobe! that old rat!

  • Roc

    I feel the Lakers should go for a Bynum for Howard trade with the Mgic. I love Bynum’s game, but when I watch him I just can’t shake the feeling that he could go down w/ injury at any moment. Plus there is no way Howard is re-upping w/ the Magic, so they need to get something back for him instead of losing him to free agency a year from now.

  • OvaChicken

    Who cares :-)

  • gani

    Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum for Dwight Howard and Hedo Turkoglu. The Lakers have to “do a favor” to the Magic and take on Hedo’s contract just to get enough leverage to get Dwight. Just my two cents.

  • Morgan

    Why did the lakers ever get rid of DJ Mbenga?!..joking aside, the Lakers don’t “need” any of the superstars that people above dream of – nor do they need to offload any of their current players.. New young PG for Fisher to mentor in his final years; Brain Shaw/Rick Adeleman as coach; constant reminders all season of how this playoffs ended; and then we are back here next year with the chance of a different outcome

  • http://slamonline.com Yknot

    The younger more athletic debate could’ve been fixed by keeping Ariza. Lol.

  • Kourtney

    Ron Artest…..HE SUCKS! all he does is cheap shot people and get ejected. He’s a joke.

  • http://http//portlandfan1203.blogspot.com Karley

    trade Kobe.. he aint nothing. send him to Europe
