Lakers get:

Andre Iguodala
Lou Williams

Sixers get:

Lamar Odom
Shannon Brown (Sign and Trade)
~$5.2 mil Trade Exception

All things even, I don't know if the Sixers do this. But, they've been looking to get rid of Iggy and this saves them a ton of money and they get talent in return. They were rumored to be open to getting Luke Walton in return, so this looks a lot better in comparison to that.

If anything, I just thought I get this forum section started again, hah.

Before posting a trade rumor or idea...
Please be aware that they are different from each other (rumors and ideas).

When you post a trade idea OR rumor, be sure to note that at the beginning of the title. For example...

Idea: Bynum, Artest for Melo

Rumor: Ratliff for Tierre Brown

It's important for us to specify. I'd appreciate it if this was done. It would be more descriptive and wouldn't give our members heart attacks. :)

Thank you.

Nice to get the possible-trades-forum started again.

Iggy and Lou Williams for Odom and Brown, would be a dream scenario.

A wing combination of Kobe and Iggy with Artest and Barnes as backups would be awesome.

Dont think it will happen though. Philly is thin at the 3, and loaded at the 4, and dont need to trade one undersized sg for another.

Not necessarily. They have Evan Turner and will probably re-sign Thaddeus Young to play the 3. They may look to use their amnesty on Brand despite him being a productive player because of his contract, and Vucevic and Speights can play C.

Shannon Brown is used to playing lesser minutes, so I think he'll be better for them. The 23 minutes a game would actually be an improvement for him.

I guess, they could chose to do that. But it would be a total rebuilding scenario for Philly as they lose 3 of their four best players.
If they do the trade, and cut Brand, they will have about 20-30 million in cap space and no real pieces to build around - not that they have any right now either.

The Lakers' salary would run wild, though. In a bad way.

The Lakers should be able to do it though. The new tax rates don't go into effect for another 2 seasons and the new Lakers' TV deal makes ownership a lot richer.
