Woj (and apparently SI before him) says there's the possibility of a trade between LA and Philly:

LA sends Odom and Walton to Philly for Iguodala. Thoughts?

i really don't see why Philly would do this.

They have Brand and Young. Odom would probably be a 6th man again. But he's 30... and who knows how we will do on a team that isn't playing for a title. Philly needs a C more than anything.

Walton is garbage.

LA easily wins this trade if it happens.

Philly wants to do this because they feel Odom can play C like he did in the world championship. So this also frees up their cap a bit and allows Turner to start.

So with all that together, it's pretty good for the Sixers, but this would be amazing for the Lakers. They need a PG and suddenly their team is really sexy again.

Wow, this trade is incredibly good for the Los Angeles Lakers. I couldn't even imagine how deadly of a team Kobe Bryant, Andre Igoudala, and Pau Gasol all starting would be. They need a decent PG and they will be STACKED. I have no clue why 76ers are going after to the most confusing players for Iggy, this trade makes no sense to me in Philadelphia's perspective.

in the world championship... where Odom CAN play C. He won't survive as a C in the NBA.

this is pretty bad for Philly.

How do you go from getting ellis for Iggy, to Odom for Iggy.

I really doubt it'll happen, but it would be great if it did. LA also offered Odom to Minny for the number 2 pick straight up, but they just wanted Bynum or Gasol for it, so now those talks are dead. Oh well. The only trade I could come up with for Minny would be Odom + Gasol for Love/no. 2 pick (a.k.a. Williams)/Ridnour. Lakers get three point shooting All-Star/younger/PG, Minny gets rid of superfluous PG since Rubio will be there this season/a pair of All-Stars (well, one All-Star and one near-All-Star).
