Ryan Anderson isn't just some role player. He is awesome. I would much rather have Anderson than Smith and there is a HUGE market for him. He is the most consistent 3 point shooter in the league who will get you 8-10 rebounds a game and provide valuable floor spacing for Horford to beast down low.
Way to be an ******* though...
i have a feeling Morey will be all over this.
BEAST MODE: ON
Anderson doesn't help LA in the same way as he helps ATL. We have offense, we need defense. There are a myriad of trades I would like the Lakers to trade Gasol for. J. Smith is just 1 of them.
However, you being an ATL fan who wants draft picks, which player is more valuable to have: A player on a 4 year 36 million dollar contract or a player with 1-year left who will probably have to be signed to a max deal wherever he ends up signing?
Anderson is a very valuable commodity and if ATL decided to trade him, they would get a nice haul.
Yeah, I think Morey will definitely try and get in on this. Don't know how exactly, but he'll likely try
There is no point in going back and forth about this. I just know Ferry has said he is looking to add a star player. Trading for Anderson doesn't do that, and actually hurts our huge cap room this summer.
I should have specified. most consistent shooting big.Curry says hi
Houston seems like a good fit. Taking pressure of Harden to score, and Lin loves to throw badly timed alley oops that Smith can actually catch. PLus, Smith likes to run and jack up 3s... that's half of the playbook in Houston.
I bet They'd wanna keep Parsons, though.
god these laker fans sound pathetic!!!! there is no way the hawks bite on the 32 year old 38 million dollar chemistry killing ailing big man that is pau gasol for the spry 27 year old in his prime about to beast on a .500 team and push for a 2nd round playoff team with legs in the future....LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Houston make sense but hawks wont take asik (poison pill)
Memphis could shock the world and go Z-bo for Smith and keep Gay
reason being Z-Bo is now 31
Josh Smith is 27
it works for both teams

^ Z-Bo is in the same boat as a Gasol trade. It is guys that are on more than 1 year deals, over 30 and are not star players.
with rockets sending first to Grizzlies
and raptors first to hawks

^ Why do we need 4 years of Conley?
Since everyone seems to be helping them out and not the Hawks, can someone see any of these traded to Hawks (don't care how many teams needed):
