i agree smith is off the market for now and plus we don't need another PF we need PG and SF help.
i just hope j.hill stays he plays so hard and gets so many offensive rebounds its unreal i know his shot isn't there but did they sit rodman b/c he no longer has range of course not he was out there setting screans and then running to the rim to get the rebound. who does mike think is going to rebound all these brick 3's lol d12 can't do it alone
You guys may think i'm crazy, but I have always liked Chris Duhon and he excels in D'Antoni's offense. I think he is the answer in terms of a backup PG once Nash comes back.
i agree duhon is better defensive player and has better chemistry with d12 but duhon is not a better offensive player

even though duhon is better defender he still can't guard any of the elite pg's in the league really noone can until they allow you to put a hand on them like used to
this would allow a smooth transition between nash and calderon as both are very similar
i'm not saying we should take this raptor deal if this is indeed what the offer was but just saying it gives us an upgrade at 2 positions PG and SF. our bench needs help desperately like what 20 pts a game almost last in league
better option would allow nash and pau to both return healthy and they both dominate but we'll see
I like this trade.. It gives the lakers a solid 3rd option behind kobe and Dwight and a solid big man off the bench to come in for dwight. :clap:
whoops.. I meant this one..
I would rather have Pau + Duhon than Bargnani and Calderon if thats the comparison you're making. :)

Man I can't believe we are actually turning down the raptors.... that trade would make us instant contenders. Bargnani and Calderon would absolutely thrive here.... then throw in Kleiza... oh my.
3 way trade.
MIN - Gasol/Ebanks
NOR - Pekovic/Barea
LAL - Anderson/Williams/Ridnour
Gives MIN the Spanish connection of Rubio/Gasol
Gives NOR a solid C to match with Davis and another SG behind Gordon
Gives LAL a stretch 4, a D'Antoni type PG and a future star
NO is in love with D Anderson, so get that out your mind, ain't happenin.
i dont like the deal from the raps, outside of calderon, i dont want bargs, offensively hes great for us, outside of that, he's a liability, why have bargs if we have jamison, same player and jamison plays harder.
I'd love to get AK-47 from them but hes playing the 3 and SF isn't Der Will's natural position, PF is and he gets no time there cuz of Love which is why they want to move him so badly.
Assumadly they'd want to give us pekovic as well since gasol would start, who i like, he's a jump shooting big but he's slow footed so he wont work.
So, I really want Derrick Williams out of this, he would thrive with Nash.
i'd love howard or roy from them but with budinger out until at least march, forget it and roy is hurt.
maybe we can nab Berea from the wolves, they have shved now, even tho hes backing up at sg,
Malcolm lee has fallen out of the rotation with Berea shooting well, so theres a possibility there.
Ok, i figured out something nice, check it :), needs on all side covered.
It says failed but i can't add Teteovic to move to the wolves for bench depth at C/PF which they need.
Gasol to Wolves
Brooks, Berea, Williams, pick to Lakers
Pekovic to the Nets
gives us lots of depth off bench, shooters, a ball handler and youth.
nets have issues at back up C/pf, Pek instantly solves that
wolves want gasol
So raptors offer is bargnani,calderon and Kleiza
Wolves offer D.Williams and ???
Lowry with another filler would be interesting. He had 34 points and 11 assists. Bargs looks horrible. 3/14 shooting? Slumping this season.
to me the best trade option is bargs kleiza and calderon deal. any one disagree with me? or agree?
watch mitch turn it into anderson, calderon and kleiza.. :D
If the T-wolves aren't offering Love then no.
The Raptors need to give up Barg and Derozan.
I like wolves deal better .
We get a back up pg ( either ridnour or barea).
a promising talent that ftis dantonis idea of a PF in derricj williams.
BUT; we would NEED to involve a third team in order to unload Pekovic on them ( we have no use for him with dwight here) and get a good SF too.
I want nothing to do with Raptors.
We ALREADY HAVE problems in DeFENSE.
JOses D is just a bit better than nash......wich is not much preciselly.
And bargs direly has NO D.
You are complainging about Paus D and being Soft?
Bargs plays 0 Defense and grabs ONE THIRD of the rebounds Pau can.
