I'd do it.
This is pure fantasy, but I would do it in a hot second if it allowed us to get rid of Diop's contract.
2) Charlotte point guard D.J. Augustin ($3.2 million) and center DeSagana Diop ($6.9 million) for Odom, Devin Ebanks ($788,872) and a 2014 first-round draft pick.
Augustin, 23, is a quick point guard who can score and pass but doesn't do quite enough to break Charlotte's bank for an extension in what will be a contract year.
The Bobcats get out of paying Diop $14.3 million over the next two seasons, fully immerse themselves in "Khloe & Lamar" fever and hope the Lakers crater in a few years with that draft pick.
Diop has averaged only 2.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in his career, becoming a pricey backup to Andrew Bynum.
I'd do it.

It's an upgrade, but where would we play him? I would think we would need to trade Diaw (totally do-able) to make space. Draft Brandon Knight? Not bad then.
I'd be all in. No doubt. Really don't see why LA would though.

Im game for that, We get a needed center and oust Diop's contract. LA gets a needed PG (Fisher can't do it anymore). Im game for this.
Get at me on twitter @dcarnys
Only if we have a veteran PG lined up or we get Kyrie because the only other good PG (Knight) will be gone by #9.
