I think Anderson might be the best guy the Lakers could get to play in D'Antoni's system. The question is would New Orleans do this? Anderson doesn't start for them and I think Gasol fits better there because he is good scorer in the post. I think every team needs that if they are going to contend. Is Pau valuable enough to include Rivers in the trade? I looked at their roster on the ESPN trade machine and Rivers would have to be included because of salary.
If New Orleans is really committed to Eric Gordon this may help him suck it up and get back on the court. If Gordon ever plays again he and Gasol are good combo. They could probably attract someone to come play with them with all the cap space New Orleans would have in the off-season. If it doesn't work out Gasol is great trade chip for them at the next trade deadline. Is this a good trade?
