ok lets break down this carmelo anthony to the lakers situation. we all know the lakers are very very low key and smart with their trades.
getting rid of sasha (5.5mill opened up and they qualified for a $5 million free exception on any trade difference. This means that the Lakers can play this "get out of jail card" on a trade to make the numbers work)
adding joe smith, another big man to make the case that andrew bynum is now trade able.
