^could even throw in ebanks but he would have to agree as he has veto power to that and calderon would be a seamless transition between nash in theory and kleiza would give our bench some help right now we have no player behind mwp didn't watch the game tonight but ebanks has been on bench as of late
Im not a fan of getting calderon and bargnani for pau
In this scenario the lakers get defense and a back up SF with 3 pt range and save 2m4 team trade:
Lakers IN: Josh Smith, Mike Dunleavy. (17m)
Bucks IN: Pau Gasol, Anthony Morrow, Devin Ebanks, Atlanta 1st. (24.2m)
Hornets IN: Luc Mbah a Moute, Larry Sanders. (6.8m)
Atlanta IN: Monta Ellis, Ryan Anderson. (19.9m
I think Atlanta would jump at the chance to get Anderson and Ellis.
The Hornets get a young center in Larry Sanders who is destroying the glass to team up with Davis and Luc who is a SOLID player on a great contract.
And the bucks get Pau, outside shooting and a 1st rd. pick. It also enable Jennings to be the go to scorer who has a great inside presence with Pau
Its a win for everyone

I really don't want Josh Smith. Looking beyond this season, he becomes a huge question mark. How much do you pay Smith? He isn't worth a max, or even close to it imo. Once his athleticism goes he'll be a Boozer/Amare-like bad contract
13 mil vs 19 mil this trade failed not sure what that trade would include
dwill has potential but this doesn't look like a good trade for us and we would have to probally cut djo to clear a spot and not sure how we get rid of blake's contract as well
bullinger is hurt i believe not sure as well as roy and rubio and the other half of their team
but why would hornets want to get rid of ryan anderson? their number 1 pick is really a PF not C so not sure why they got anderson in the first place. but now that he's there i don't see them trading him.
not sure when ebanks trade veto thing ends maybe dec 15 not sure on that
j.smith isn't a great shooter in fact probally worse than pau but he is younger, more athletic.
but with jamison and j.hill well at least jamison i don't think we really need a PF what we really need help at is PG and SF
in mike's system he likes to have the lane clear for pick and roll and then shooters around the 3.
I dunno. The problem with Smith is that offensively he's a worse fit than Pau as of now. Teams are going to give Josh Smith wide open jump shots all night. The dude is one of the worst jump shooters in the NBA. He's good defensively, but offensively, if it isn't in the paint it's a problem for him.
Just to add again, I don't think Smith is coming here. Seems like Ferry wants his contract to come off the books so we can try and team up Dwight with Josh... long shot, but hey might as well
Well I know if I was the GM of the Hawks, I would not think twice about this.

I know they are highlights but we could really use some of this.

if thunder go small and put durant at 4, lebron 4, melo 4 we could even use someone like an ebanks on durant and will be playing the 4 position
j.hill could give enough space potentially he has been working on a 20 ft jumper and if he follows his shot could be helpful. he could also be setting screans on the perimeter as well. playing more of a dennis rodman role defense /rebounding
bargs is just to get salaries to match PG would be upgrade and backup SF would be upgrade and really don't loose too much at PF with jamison and j.hill playing well. if bargs does improve that's a bonus
