A Lakers Trade Scenario

The Los Angeles Lakers are on top of the Western Conference, sporting a 42-10 record, and...

they have a gaping hole in the middle.

The Lakers find themselves in almost the same situation last year when Andrew Bynum went down with a season ending injury. They need some help in the center position and they could use a trade to get them what they need.

I played around with ESPN's Trade Machine and tried to find a suitable trade that can help the Lakers. Here's what I tried:

Los Angeles Lakers get:
  1. Eddy Curry
  2. David Lee
  3. Jerome James
New York Knicks get:
  1. Lamar Odom
  2. Chris Mihm
It's essentially a David Lee for Lamar Odom trade, with Eddy Curry thrown in to balance the salaries. Lakers get a good number of bigs, with contracts that expire 1-2 years from now.
What do you think?
