Bynum Out, Miller In?

The breaking news is that Andrew Bynum is going to be out 8-12 weeks.  Suddenly there is speculation about the possibility of L.A. possiblt adding another big via trade.  Obviously Miller isn't at the same level as Bynum, but he might work as a stop-gap for L.A.

Miller for Odom straight-up works under the cap, and Odom would come off the books at the end of this season.

There are problems with this scenario.  The most obvious of which:

  • We'd still have K-9, Moore, etc
  • This would exacerbate the logjam in the wings (Garcia, Salmons, etc)
  • It would hinder L.A.'s short term cap flexibility (since Miller is on the books for a year longer than Odom), so they may not go for it

But there are advantages as well:

  • Becomes much easier for us to part with Salmons via trade
  • Hawes in the starting line-up
  • L.A. is able to start an above-average center (as much as we've loathed Miller lately, he's still better than Chris Mihm)
  • Increases our cap flexibility sooner

So the question becomes:
