    Yeah, I'd be down for any of those. Jesus... Nash is cashing in on our expense. Two more years at 9 mill per?

    -Dwight + someone for Marc and Conley (and possibly 1 other piece: tony allen?)

    -Pau and blake for Ben Gordon, Sessions, filler

    -Blake and ebanks (do we have a pick?) for Lowry

    It's time to shake things up. Nash and Pau need to be dealt.

    Trades
    LAL gets: Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green
    BOS gets: Pau Gasol, Darius Morris, Antawn Jamison
    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=b79ecmw

    LAL gets: DeMar DeRozan, Jose Calderon
    TOR gets: Steve Nash, Earl Clark, Devin Ebanks, Steve Blake
    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=b8pw9yl

    LAL gets: Anthony Morrow, Anthony Tolliver
    ATL gets: Jordan Hill, Jodie Meeks
    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=a5n6zqj

    This would give us a lineup of:

    Rondo/Calderon
    Kobe/Morrow
    DeRozan/World Peace
    Green/Tolliver
    Dwight/Sacre

    Boston always seems to be looking to deal Rondo and they would get Gasol, a young PG in Morris, and Jamison to fill Green's role. Toronto finally gets Nash and gets rid of Calderon... basically a switch of 2 young athletic forwards in DeRozan and Clark plus they get Ebanks and a back up to Lowry in Blake. Atlanta gets Jordan Hill to replace Josh Smith if he leaves this offseason and a shooter in Meeks to replace Morrow. I think these trades work for all teams involved and this would convince Dwight to stay and get to play with Rondo. Then all we would need is for Jerry Buss to take back the team from Jimmy Boy and to fire D'Antoni and everything would be perfect...

    The answer to our problems is a huge swallowing of pride for the FO.

    Sack D'Antoni and pay him out ( ouch !!)
    Trade Nash for Calderon straight up.
    Hire Brian Shaw and play the triangle.

    Those that prosper.

    Bryant - half court offense
    Gasol - play the post
    Howard - weak side D but with Gasol and Calderon feeding him would get all those easy shots he needs.
    Meeks - 3 point oops a plenty.
    Clark - good inside out player.
    Jamison - good inside out player.
    Artest - half court game.
    Duhon/Blake - half court game.
    Hill - weak side D and O.

    Nash on the other hand could re-invigorate Bargnani.

    If you could go Nash/Ebanks/Duhon for Calderon/Kleiza AND sack MD for BS we would be back in it IMO. Kleiza is a big mongrel unit who can play inside out and is a stretch 4 of some note.

    SHAW could run a pseudo triangle on the fly which Howard would be able to pick up quick playing weak side. More players would be able to handle the half court offense and the team D offset.

    Make trade now or wait until 2014?

    IMO the only move we can make right now is to trade Pau. If we do that we are almost certainly going to take back salaries that extend beyond 2014 thus ruining are chances to be a major player in free agency that year. I think we should trade Pau now and worry about rebuilding later. Kobe is a once a generation player and he deserves better than this shitshow for the last years of his career.

    Honestly, it's too late to make a difference for this season. Unless your getting young assets back with decent contracts, and a pick what's the point?

    The Lakers were smart enough to trade away TWO first round draft picks to the Suns for a 38 year-old Steve Nash. I am sure there are some playoff-contention teams that would be willing to let go of a first round pick or two for a 32 year-old center that is an all-star 2-time champion...OR a 33 year-old defensive stopper have a solid season.

    C'mon...as bad as people want to poo-poo the players, I am sure there are plenty of teams that would love to have our problem children. From Kobe and Dwight down to Antawn and Meeks. As long as d'Antoni is the coach, these players are being wasted on a system that doesn't work. Trade away if you can get get the Lakers draft options rebuilt, otherwise FLUSH d'ANTONI and ride out the players' contracts with a coach the lets the players play.
