Here is a paragraph from the article that I saw from Hoopshype.com...
"Whether he meant to or not, Carlisle opened the door for speculation that the Mavs could be open to dealing Odom for a player of relevance. It would require packaging him with say, Shawn Marion ($8.6 million next season), for a high-dollar player another team wants to get out from under the contract, for example Pau Gasol in Los Angeles or Amare Stoudemire in New York."
So this article is saying that Odom is obviously available, and the Mavs might be looking to trade Shawn Marion as well.
If you trade both odom (8 mil) and marion (8 mil)...the salaries match with Amare.
Would you guys make this trade?
And would the Mavs take this? My guess is only if they can not get Nash or D Will they might pull the trigger on something like this. Dirk spaces the floor while Amare drives down low.
We can have a more defensive lineup with a better bench with Odom coming off of it. And Melo can play the 4.
