Pau has been playing really well lately. Don't want Bargs
At this point, a package surrounding Bargs/Lowry is the best possible deal we can get. There should be no hesitation. The Lakers should also try really hard to also grab Amir Johnson in the deal to help improve our defense up front.
Bargs is a great fit with Nash and Howard. He's only there to score and hit open shots, in which there will be many opportunities for him. Lowry will help solve our bench issues and provide the scoring we oh so desperately need.
He's also another chip to help keep Howard stay.
I do not see how this trade, in any way, could possibly worsen this team.

i don't see it happening....they gave up too much for lowry...i think bargs is going to be part of a package
Honestly though, what is Bargs' value right now?
He's often injured, inefficient offensively, averages under 5 rpg in his career, doesn't play defense, and his contract sucks.
If Toronto can't trade him by the deadline, they might as well use their amnesty on him.
How exactly would Gasol fit in Toronto... Not to mention Kyle Lowry is a huge part of their team.
Here's the issue I have with Lowry. He doesn't even start for them and his contract is up after next year. He's an UFA. Dude is moody and has left for not being able to start in the past. At least this is what Grizz fans have told me.
Makes sense for the Raps imo, I mean they have to deal Bargs, and the only way to do that is getting rid of Calderon or Lowry in the process.
Doesn't make sense at all for the Lakers. They're basically trading Pau for Lowry. Bargs is a burden
I would just rather not trade Pau for that deal. Gasol's contract is going to be extremely valuable. Next year he's a 19 mill expiring, and the dude can still play when not running around in D'antoni's crap system
We need to blow up our roster, trade every person in the orginization, even the Air Canada Center for Kevin Durrant... We'll let him play 1vs5 on a blacktop court in the ghettos of Toronto if we have to, just get us Kevin Durrant!
We are Anonymous,
We are Legion,
We do not forgive,
We do not forget,
Gasol has a big contract left, so its not the best decision to acquire him in Toronto's POV.
A three team trade would be nice Gasol and Jamison to Wolves; Lowry, Bargnani and Pekovic to Lakers; Williams,Barea and 1st rd pick from Min; future 2nd rd pick from LA to Raptors..
people always think that every team wants pau gasol...I don't get it!
