View Full Version : Rumour: Gasol to Chicago for Boozer/Korver

When the three-team trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers fell through there were plenty of hard feelings on the LA side of the equation. Lamar Odom was so upset that he requested – and received – a trade. Pau Gasol was equally upset, but was more grateful the deal fell through than anything else. Still, rumors of Gasol being dealt have been persistent, whether it was the Kevin Love deal the Lakers reportedly tried to consummate last summer or the Chris Paul deal. That is no doubt why there is not a Spanish-language outlet reporting that the Lakers are talking to the Chicago Bulls about a Carlos Boozer/Gasol swap.

The rumored deal would also involve Kyle Korver heading to LA along with Boozer.

I rather keep pau then trade him for boozer and his bad defense. No need for korver, the lakers have kapono to make 3's.

Regret? Hardly.

I say this as someone who readily dislikes Boozer. With that said, that cap space would be wasted otherwise and he's still capable of being a very good scoring option and rebounder.

Bulls obviously rape in this deal, though. I'd also point out that this "rumor" probably came from that Spanish source a couple days ago that many debunked as garbage so take this for what it's worth.

However, I'll play along because I can think of two reasons as to why it might make sense for LA.

One, and the main reason, is that I've been hearing that Jim Buss is a far cheaper owner than his father. Could be same reason Odom was given away for saving cap and I don't think it's a secret they look to further cut salary. In this scenario, they save money since Boozer's deal is a good 5mil less per year than Gasol's AND they wouldn't have to pick up Korver's option. Or they do since their depth at the wings is kinda bad... Either way, it's a cost cutting move.

Two, Boozer is also a best bud of Howard's and this could be LA's way of trying to sell Howard their way...

Either way, for the Bulls it's a no brainer. Gasol is only one year older, far less injuries, much better, and a much better fit alongside Rose in terms of spreading the floor.

Horrible trade for Lakers.

Pau>Boozer/Korverby far Gasol is better than them both combined, and deng combined. Gasol is a hall of famer in my opinion. he shows up and the lakers win 2 of 3 straight finals. the lakers showing him 0 appreciation for what he's done there is horrible. he should never have been considered in a trade

This would be one of the worst trades in recent memory if it happened...
Boozer plays 0 defense. He cant dunk, so he gets alot of shots blocked or misses easy shots since he tries to lay em up every which way. The high arch on his jumper makes the chance of him knocking down the shot even less...put up a hand and he misses....

I can't possibly believe this rumour. Why would the Lakers take on even more salary, and give up Pau? How would they benefit when they're not gaining any cap relief or upgrading? Don't get me wrong, Boozer is a good player, but Pau is a level above him...even if he's ageing. Plus Boozer is nearing 30 himself, and if LA are going to make changes, they need to inject their team with some youth.

The bulls have to beat the heat to go to the finals because the heat are in the same conference as they are. Is it a given they will face each other? no, but it is very likely considering they are the 2 best teams in the conference. Therefore, how a Bulls team with gasol matches up to the heat is very relevant to the discussion.

How this has anything to do with any of the other teams in the league, is beyond me. Stop being so bitter everytime someone mentions the heat and go watch golf or some **** like that.

In his prime, no, but he outplayed Gasol when they matched up last year, and did a very good job on him defensively. You add the fact that Gasol is another year older and looked bad in the playoffs, my money is on bosh.

The only thing i don't know about, is how having a player like noah (who isnt a guarantee to get injured again like Bynum) helps take the pressure off him as far as rebounding and defending the big man througout the season.

And im not completely sold on all this RIP hamilton stuff like everyone else, though it is a very good pickup.

You realize that head to head statistics are one of the worst ways to determine who the better player is correct? Especially when its alot closer than you make it out to be.

The finals indicate that Jason Terry is better than LeBron James. By your logic that is aslo true?

Good point, but that's more of an aberration IMO, every player has terrible games and he kept settling for long jumper after long jumper, and the heat saw him struggling and were still forcing the ball to him for whatever reason.

He's made up for it since then and has had the better of boozer in almost every game since then, including the playoffs.

Maybe this could be part of a bigger deal or the 1st part of a couple deals. Say Orlando wants both Bynum and Gasol, but Lakers think they'll be to depleted in inside if they give up both. So they look for a Gasol replacement and pick up assets orlando wants in the process. Maybe it could look something like this.

Chicago sends out Boozer, Korver, 1st round pick 12, Charlotte pick, Taj Gibson
Chicago receives Pau

Lakers Send out Bynum, Gasol, Dallas pick, and their own pick in 2012
Lakers receive Boozer, Howard and Korver

Orlando Sends out Howard
Orlando Receives Bynum, Gibson, Charlotte pick, Chicago Lakers and Dallas 2012 pick

I think that trade helps Bulls and Lakers this year and is a pretty good return for Orlando.

Pau gasol is nowhere near a hof.

considering how Lebron shutdown Rose last year, and how BOSH(of all people) owned Gasol the two times they played last year, I doubt it.

He didn't shut down Rose, let's not make stuff up. He played him well a few possessions as the Heat were changing up defenders on Rose.

I can say the same thing about Shawn Marion shutting down Lebron last year which means it will happen again this year and Jason Terry outplaying Lebron averaging more ppg in the finals than him.

As a Bulls fan I wish we had never signed the loser, and, as a Bulls fan, I hope he proves me to be the ignorant @$$ and wrong about him. That said, Boozer will get injured this year if not suck it up in the playoffs as a second option.

We'd be lucky for Boozer just to make it to the playoffs healthy, let alone for him not to suck in them...

I don't see how he can be Rose's wingman to win a championship. He's just not good enough.

It's easy to guard a teams only option especially 6 inches taller when they are burnt out in the last 5 mins of a game. If what you are saying is FACT i am happy to say the NBA will never have to worry about LeBron leading a team to a championship because he has played horrible in crunch time in finals.

Jazz fan here: When Boozer was with us, we loved his energy, shooting touch and physical rebounding. The things that lead him out of grace with the fans were:
1) Injury prone
2) Big head heart on money rather than team
3) Always dominated by taller defenders

You can't dismiss that he gets 20-10 per night and sometimes gets a tripple double, IF he's on the floot, IF he's the same size as the defender and IF he's getting paid..... I agree with the Laker fans that are saying No to this trade....

I could see a potential three team deal going down with Howard and Boozer to the lakers, Gasol to the Bulls, and Bynum + a guy like Asik and picks to the Magic.

Doubtful, but the potential is there
Magic would have to get Deng as well

Yeah, hard to see Chicago parting with both Asik & Booz for just Gasol. Asik is too young and has too much potential. You tell Chicago give me Booz or Asik for Gasol and I guarantee you you'd get Booz. Hard to see the Bulls parting with anyone but Booz, Korver, and then picks of course for anything short of a star-caliber player in their prime at this point (especially since we're better at SG than before).

The lakers know they have no shot this year. They are trading for one of Dwight's best buddies, Boozer. They are getting Korver so they can not pick up his option and save some cash. Bulls will be getting Mr. Cash Money Pau Gasol, elevating them to championship status. Yeah babyyyyy

So you have nothing to contribute at the topic at hand, as usual and you lie in the bushes and wait till someone makes a remark that in your mind discredits the heat?

Good job patrolling that one and adding how great the heat are in this Pau Gasol thread.

This is the main forum, 30 teams are talked about here. Get it?

Tssskk..didn't you know? Any time the Bulls get mentioned as potential champions, its an insult to Heat fans?

What is wrong with the way they have handled thing lately? As far as I have seen, they had a trade for the best point guard in the game which was vetoed. Then, the prima donna that thinks he is above getting traded, gets his feelings hurt, and demands a trade. They have been doing everything in their power to try and improve the team for the future. The Lakers don't get sentimental, and keep players past their prime. And they don't beg players to stay when they act out of line. Especially role players.

Teams like Cleveland and Toronto were having a hard time using up their TPE...

Lakers gave up Odom to dump salary, plain and simple.

How is it a salary dump when Odom's contract still counts against their cap? They would not have given him up for nothing if he didn't act like he was above getting traded. He demanded to be traded. It was not a salary dump. The Lakers are not penny pinchers

Are the Lakers trying to lose on purpose so they can get a good draft pick in the elite 2012 draft class, get a star rookie and pair him with Kobe to make a run for a title in the 2012-13 season?

Sure thing boss. Maybe in the regular season, but not in a 7 game series. They had there chance last year and blew it, losing 4 in a row. They are just not going to take 4 games off miami in a 7 game series. I guarantee it.

Pretty sure this is only a rumor that was debunked quite a while ago. It's not the Bulls need Pau anyway. I think they're good as is, and I think you'll see that tomorrow afternoon at 5PM.

If you're going to guarantee something, make sure you can back it up.

Not like that 1 Heat fan who says he'll quit PSD only to stay only because he thinks the refs beat the Heat.

What about this. If they lose, you quit PSD.

Tanking for a season is not part of what the lakers want to do. It does sound interesting. Kobe isnt getting any younger and the lakers would never want to tank, his knees will fail him eventually..

If they do get Gasol though, it should be reallly interesting should Miami and Chicago meet again. One of the main reasons that Chicago lost last year, was because Bosh Owned Boozer down low. I think in General, that Bosh is a better PF than boozer though, so I think the same would happen again if they were to meet again. If Gasol is there however, the PF battle becomes a wash... I say it definitely goes to 7 if Gasol becomes a Bull
