The Lakers Need A Big

So where will the Lakers turn to now that they have pulled the deals they offered to Lamar Odom off the table? TheLakers could do a sign-and-trade for Odom, or trade another player to get a quality player. The Lakers probably will look for a big man, someone who can play backup power forward and center. Players such as Chris Wilcox, Joe Smith and Drew Gooden fit that mold and are still available, but probably will get the mid-level exception or a portion of it. Stromile Swift,Sean May, Jarron Collins, Sheldon Williams, Mikki Moore, Ike Diogu, Tim Thomas, Juwan Howard and former Laker Chris Mihm could be possibilities for the Lakers.
