    Wiggins is not eligible for the draft until 2014.

    He is still in high school.

    wiggins should just come out and say, I will not play for any other team besides the toronto raptors. So then toronto can just trade whoever in order to get the first overall pick. Is that allowed to be done? can you refuse to play for any other team and not workout for them? I know kobe declared he only wanted to play for the lakers.
    Try staring at this picture for more than a minute without getting a headache

    Well the franchise did that to Vancouver when he got drafted so why not? Oh wait because Wiggins isn't a douche bag.

    Lots of teams would take Gasols talents over Bargnani.
    Why wouldn't salaries have to match? Do they have a trade exception?

    Me too. 3-way deal for the win!

    I would hate that. That shows such a lack of professionalism. The rumour that Bargs did the same thing is something I have always held against him.

    The way i see it, the only risk we are taking is losing Calderon for nothing. If things don't work out this year and we still don't get the third pick, we can always trade Barg's after the season and of course NOT sign BC.

    id really like to keep calderon if we were to get gasol.

    i would def do a bargs & fields for gasol and just keep pietrus..

    lowry/calderon
    derozan/ross/anderson
    pietrus/kleiza
    gasol/ed davis
    jonas/amir

    this would be nice.. we get rid of fields bad contract, and part ways with bargs. jonas gets a great mentor and calderon & gasol have great chemistry together.


    i do worry about gasol being 32 and haveing issues with both knees though.

    "The Los Angeles Lakers recently rejected a Timberwolves trade offer for forward Pao Gasol that would revolve around Minnesota center Nikola Pekovic and forward Derrick Williams, according to an ESPN.com report citing sources with knowledge of the Lakers' thinking.

    The report claimed that the Lakers also turned down an offer from the Toronto Raptors.

    Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn was unavailable for comment Thursday morning, Dec. 6.
    If that's true, then Colangelo is clearly willing to let go of Bargnani.

    but in an earlier post it was stated that Colangelo has shown an unwillingness to let go of Bargnani. it's possible that he wasn't even on the table yet. the Lakers are unlikely to make a trade until they have a chance to see their whole team, I don't think the discussions have reached a serious point yet

    Depends how you look at it. If the Raptors have already made an offer, that shows Colangelo is willing to part with him. IF the Raptors actually didn't make the offer, that shows Colangelo isn't willing.

Right now we have the second worst record in the league and a pretty good chance at Wiggins lol Plus, that really could be the ideal scenario especially if BC doesn't get resigned this year.

    Although i'm not sure if Wiggins is actually eligible for the draft. If someone can confirm this. Either way though we could likely have a top three pick and that in itself is worth it right now. I just don't see how this team can change things around with this roster. For whatever reason it is clearly not working the way it should.
    Aren't they saying this years draft is horrible. Also Wiggins ain't even in college he's not eligible for the draft until 2014.

    i could be missing something, i didn't read as closely as i might have, but aren't we assuming that the offer included Bargnani? as far as i could tell the link didn't actually state that.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Its pure speculation. He may just be testing the waters as any GM would do. He would inquire what the Lakers can offer him for his baby.

    But there is no way that somebody can say that he is clearly willing to part ways with his former no.1 pick.

    Maybe it's the other way around, Lakers calling BC about Bargs...offering a second rounder and their scrubs for him(no Gasol). Then completely shut it down when BC responded **** you Kupchak.

    I assumed that the trade included Bargnani since that's the only trade possibility out there. There's no big man we can offer back for Gasol expect for Bargnani and Jonas. I doubt Colangelo would trade Jonas.
