Bynum and Gasol make a combined $33.6M next year. On the other hand, Dwight makes around $18M. If we take Dwight and Ryan Anderson who could realistically command at the most $10M, we'd save around $5M of cap space.

Why the Magic do it:
1. Bynum is a young center you has finally managed to stay healthy.
2. Gasol is a versatile, quality bigman.
3. NBA analysts have been adamant that the Lakers advantage has been their twin towers, with the current 3 point shooting team the Magic have, the bigs would complement the outside game.

Why the Lakers do it:
1. We need a centerpiece bigman who is athletic and will play defense night in night out. The athleticism of Dwight makes defending P&R attacks less troublesome for the Lakers. Not to mention, Dwight plays out of the double team better than Bynum.
2. Getting a knockdown 3pt shooter in Ryan anderson would stretch the floor, finally opening up the post game.
3. Some might say that we would miss the post game of the Bynum and Gasol but Dwight would pick up the post possessions of Bynum AND at the stage of Kobe's career, and his play this season, we has been doing a lot of damage at the high post, elbows and baseline. IMHO, no need to have Gasol cloging up the works.
4. Ryan Anderson would also give Kobe a legit pick and pop guy with 3 point range.
5. Ryan Anderson has also shown that he can rebound the basketball.

Team after:

C Dwight Howard
PF Ryan Anderson
SF Metta World Peace
SG Kobe Bryant
PG Steve Blake
6 Ramon Sessions
7 Jordan Hill
8 Devin Ebanks
9 Josh McRoberts
10 Andrew Goudelock
11 Darius Morris
12 Christian Eyenga
13 Rookie/FA
14 Rookie/FA
15 Rookie/FA

- The starting line-up would have proper spacing. Dwight and Kobe at the post, Ryan Anderson, Metta and Blake spoting up for 3s.
- Ramon who has been a back-up for most of his career with success, can work to organize the second team.
- The bench is still qustionable offensively so hopefully we can get 1 more scorer (why not bring Shannon Brown back?)

The Magic haven't been terrible this year, Dwight has just been mailing in games since he doesn't want to stay with the Magic. Add Kobe to the Magic and they'd be a heck of a team.

This trade won't work out unless your David Stern.
Bynum + Gasol 33 Million.
Howard + Anderson 19 Million.

Unless Orlando has a huge wallet and wants to pay, then it happens, but I give this trade a 0%.

Analysts have been saying that we lose games because Kobe goes HERO mode in the fourth. What they don't say is that the lack of shooters on the floor make denying the post feed VERY EASY. Usually resulting to Kobe having to make something happen with less than 8 seconds to go on the clock.

Ryan Anderson is a RFA, he would reallictically command AT THE MOST $10M, lets say he gets $8m, Dwight at $18 + $8 to 10M for Ryan, + the Lamar trade exemption, it works cap wise.

The Orlando Magic have until Wednesday at 11:59 PM to extend the contract of fourth-year power forward Ryan Anderson--the NBA's deadline for members of the 2008 draft class--but Otis Smith said he has no plans to do so. "We still have the right of first refusal because he'd be a restricted free agent," the Magic's President of Basketball Operations told Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. "It could backfire, and we could have to pay more. But that's the risk we've chosen to take."

A report Friday indicated Anderson was among the "most likely" 2008 draftees to earn a contract extension prior to Wednesday's deadline.

Anderson is enjoying the most successful season of his career, ranking second on the team in scoring (16.4 points per game) and in rebounding (6.8 rebounds per game) through Tuesday's matchup against the Indiana Pacers. It's likely the 23-year-old will receive an offer sheet well into eight figures.

Smith told Robbins the uncertainty surrounding Dwight Howard's future with the franchise contributed to his decision not to extend Anderson's contract. This course of action "helps maintain some flexibility," as Robbins writes.

In the last three offseasons, two Magic players have hit restricted free agency: Marcin Gortat in 2009 and J.J. Redick in 2010. Orlando matched the offer on both occasions, though it did wind up trading Gortat less than six months after doing so.

That's why we need to do more pick and rolls.....Gasol is already good at it...Bynum is decent as well.....Defending the post is easy when there are no screens being set for one another, which is what the Lakers do quite often.....Kobe and Sessions are very good at pick and roll offense...they both have the ability to find the open man, and attack the basket.....When we do it consistently, it usually works..
