I don't think we should trade LO, he's just too damn versatile.

We should just "make" Luke become a coach.

What do you folks think? (sorry if this is in the wrong area)

In most trade ideas on this forum, most do have LO in the deal. It's nothing against him. But, he's easily the most tradable player. He might return a better player in return unlike everybody else because of his contract. If the Iggy rumors were true, I say the Lakers take it and try to get Lou Williams from them as well.

I agree, we do take LO for granted. He is awesome and as a backup behind Bynum and Gasol, he is perfect. Especially considering Bynums injury history.

The thing is, he is almost too good to be playing the backup-role, especially when there are other needs that REALLY needs to be adressed, such as the PG position.

Besides the obvious blockbuster trades where we send anyone not named Kobe to Orlando or New Orleans for an elite piece, putting Odom in a trade could really improve the team.

You could perhaps send him to Phoenix for Lopez, Brooks and a future 1st round pick or to Houston for Lowry, Hill and Thabeet. He could provide pieces that could balance the team a bit.
