Look at salaries exploding right now, his deal is cheap in the context of a rising cap.


Oh I know. The deal makes a lot of sense even with Walton's contract going till 2012/13 and the 7.5% TK.

Its just Luke Walton. He's a boring player to watch. But I'm not complaining as I'd do the deal 10 times out of 10.
Luke Walton isn't really that boring to watch...you just haven't seen him play since 2006, play by play guys rave about his excellent passing and shooting touch...


I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M TRYING TO SELL SOMEONE ON LUKE ***** WALTON.


He can pass, but career FG% of 44 and 3pt % of 34?

Meh.

You don't have to sell me on Walton. I'd do the deal with Sasha and Walton.

No doubt Kleiza is signing here to replace Turk. I would trade Turk too, but I'm not crazy about the proposed deal. Also, it doesn't make much sense for him to go to the Lakers.

We shed a little over $25m in salary commitments, and get rid of a deal that could become utterly unmovable if Turk repeats his performance of a year ago (or keeps aging, as players are wont to do).


works in the trade checker, even with the kickers (Luke has one as well apparently)

interesting thought, given the interest Toronto had in Ebanks at the draft...

Because both Sasha and Luke are bigger scrubs?

Bah. This trade would nothing to do with basketball but with getting rid of long-term bad contracts. Even if the Lakers signed and traded Morrison @ $10 m for 1 year for Hedo that would still be beneficial. Addition by subtracting bad contracts & disinterested players.

The trade would have to involve Jose. I know BC would jump on any decent offer for Turks fat contract, but LA also has interest in Calderon. But what can we get in return? Bynum? He'll be making 13M 15M and 16M for the next 3 years..

Hedo Turkoglu
$9,800,000
$10,600,000
$11,400,000
$12,200,000

Jose Calderon
$9,000,000
$9,780,993
$10,561,985


I think we can get bynum here.

Our team would actually improve.
trade the picks we or TPE from Miami to Hornets for Collsion and wow.

We lose Bosh Jose Turk
Add Bynum Beasley Collison


Bynum/ Ed Davis
Bargnani/ Amir
Beasley/ Weems
Derozan/ Belinelli
Collison/ Jack

This right here is a 40+ win team.

No way the Lakers even think about trading Bynum unless they feel his knees are shot and will be out of the league before Turk's deal ends.

Why is anyone concerned about the talent ( or lack thereof ) coming back in a deal for Turk ?

You do it for financial flexibility. Removing a bloated contract, and replacing with two smaller one's, one of which is an expiring, is all the positive return we should be looking for.

Pushing for anything else is the kind of greed that would prevent you from being able to move a contract like Turk's.

You're not getting Collison unless you take a contract like Okafor's...

And 40 wins cements this team for more mediocrity.

Signs that your team is royally screwed: it takes two lopsided fantasy trades to make you a 40 win team.
