Hey, we have seen teams work miracles as far as money is concerned, The Lakers are a really good option, depending on who is left on the team in 2012, and who can they give up to make the money work. CP3 maybe a long shot, but D-12 is in the rear view. I named CP3, for the fact I don't see him in a Hornets uniform that long. They can throw Odom in there for cap relief with some 1st round picks if they were that serious to get CP3, but I see D-12 either going to New Jersey with D-Will, or go help the Lakers rebuild their franchise in Kobe's last days.
If he stays in Orlando, Stan Van Gundy will not be the coach.
Artest, Odom, Kobe, Pau, Blake, Walton, Ebanks & Character (if I recall)....
if I remember: Brown & Fisher is off the books in 2012
2011 Expires: Barnes, Smith, Ratliff
not to mention no Phil Jack after 2011
