Marion, Artest, Odom. It's enough to make someone's head spin.
Points in favor of Odom:
- More like to be resigned affordably next summer.
- Better passer.
- More traditional mold for Jason Thompson to emulate.
Points in favor of Marion:
- Much better defender.
- Much better shooter.
- Better player, period.
- Better fit for minutes at three.
In no other reasonable trade could the Kings pull players of this caliber. They have flaws -- every NBA player not named LeBron has them -- but these are good, good players.
I suspect you'll have thoughts.
