Now I know that no one wants fish but if you look at the deal the Hornets save money, primarily in the last year, and Ariza's deal ends the same year Kobe and Pau's does. The Hornets get two young players, save cash, get a 1st round pick out of the lakers, and Stern gets to mend fences with the whole CP3 fiasco. If they're lucky Fish and/or Luke will retire or be bought out at the end of the year, saving them even more money. Meanwhile the lakers take on minimal salary, get younger, faster, add scoring, defense, and get to keep Pau. Thoughts?
