Ariza-Odom contracts

Ariza was young and he did a good job throughout the year. He deserve a long contract 5 years for $40M, which come out $8M/year. We signed Luke and Sasha $5M/year already and Ariza deserve much more then that.....Odom on the other hand will be 30 year old and I think we can pay him as his market value which should be around 4 years for $32M. I dont think any other team is welling to pay him more then that.

With Kobe, Lamar, and Ariza all becoming free agents, it makes it easier to balance the three salaries out to keep the same team together. Fisher already showed us the way by taking some of his salaries in future years, so they could keep the luxury tax down at the present.

it is better to keep Ariza, forget about Odem and Walton.

if Kobe wants to be the team leader, he should restructure his contract to help sign the free agents.
