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.
