[QUOTE]In Response to Anyone see this happening? : Not going to happen. LA players have high salaries and why would Orlando want older players, and Bynum (knee injuries). Now, I would not be suprised to see Orlando and Oklahoma do a trade. Westbrook, Hardin, Perkins, and 1st round pick for Dwight and Arenas. Orlando gets younger players with high upside, a big man, and 1st round pick. Works well for both teams. Laker nation would hate this!!!

OKC is 9 million under last years cap
Perk, Nate, Harden, Westbrook, rotal Ivey, BJ Mullens (or Cole Aldridge) make 24-25 million.
So they can take back about 40 million in salary.
Howard and Gil Arenas make 36 million next year. Orlando could even rid themselves of QRich or Duhon in the deal. save themselves 25-30 million alone in 2012-13.
But... OKC wouldn't want anything to do with Arenas.
If you could swap him for Jameer Nelson, even if it means taking back Turkoglu, They might find that fair.
A Howard-Ibaka-Durant-Thabo-Nelson starting 5 with Nazr-Collison-Hedo-Q-Rich and Maynor off the bench is a solid team.
