NBA AM: Will Lakers Target Iguodala Again?
By Alex Kennedy
NBA Writer

Andre Iguodala was nearly traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Los Angeles Lakers last June. In the hours leading up to the 2011 NBA Draft, the two teams were discussing a potential deal that would’ve sent Iguodala to Los Angeles in exchange for several pieces including Lamar Odom and a draft pick.

The Lakers were ready to pull the trigger on the deal and the Sixers strongly considered it. However, Philadelphia ultimately turned down the trade because they believed that Odom would be unhappy and unmotivated after being dealt from Los Angeles.


After watching Odom struggle with the Dallas Mavericks and get dismissed from the team in April, there’s no question that Philadelphia made the right decision. Their read on Odom was entirely accurate – he had the worst year of his career, averaging 6.6 points and 4.1 rebounds – and now they find themselves one game away from the Eastern Conference Finals.

However, if the Sixers are eliminated by the Boston Celtics in Game 7, the general consensus around the league is that they’ll try to trade Iguodala this summer. Even with Philadelphia’s recent success, league sources insist that Iguodala is a player who could be moved this offseason if the right offer comes along.

The Lakers, who are looking to shake their roster up this offseason, are expected to once again emerge as a potential suitor for Iguodala. The 28-year-old would be an excellent fit for Los Angeles and solve their problem at small forward. Sources close to the situation say that Kobe Bryant would welcome the move since he has wanted the Lakers to acquire an athletic, versatile small forward for several years.

After missing on Iguodala last summer, the Lakers may be able to land him this offseason if they’re willing to part with the right pieces. With that said, Los Angeles will have competition for the small forward. Many teams are expected to express interest if Iguodala becomes available. This season, he averaged 12.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.5 a.ssists in 62 games with the Sixers.

Many players will be mentioned as possible targets for the Lakers this summer, but Iguodala is a realistic option given that these teams have flirted with this possibility in the no-so-distant past.

atleast somebody knew that odom didn't want to play in their city. this is a bad move for LA. he is just making way too much money. although pau is making more, he's getting paid much closer to his value than iggy is. and who's taking artest in this scenario? wouldn't make any sense to have them both on the roster. i'd rather go after someone like ariza in a sign and trade using our lamar odom trade exception without giving up pau and try to trade artest somehow.

would be a good look for them, especially since he prefers being a distributor and letting kobe chuck.

Iggy would not help the Lakers if the Lakers are aiming to win championships. He's not a champ and somewhat of a let-down player in crunch time. He is definitely not the answer.

Gasol for Iggy makes a lot of sense for both teams..

A few more players would probably have to be involved tho. Leaves the Lakers with no PF.

how are you going to put "lakers targeting iggy... again" in the thread title when the title of the article is "WILL the lakers target iggy"?
if you read the parts of the article i bolded it said:
"The Lakers, who are looking to shake their roster up this offseason, are expected to once again emerge as a potential suitor for Iguodala."

the title of the article is a little more in it's tone after you read the article.

but i understand that there might be some confusion based on the title. so to clear things up and to appease you guys i added an edit at the top of my post and asked the mods to change the thread title.
