Also, the Lakers reportedly are trying to find a way to land Paul Pierce. Not sure yet, what they are willing to give up. But again, it won't be an easy deal to make. The Celtics love him, obviously

They'd have to give up Gasol or Bynum for BOS to even consider it. Maybe something like Pierce and Garnett for Byum and TPE.

Well the problem that faces the Celts if they want to deal Pierce, which I don't think will happen, is that he's not gonna get them a stud of a young player. A contender won't offer them much, and you know Pierce will be pissed if he goes to a struggling franchise.

Boston shouldn't trade him anyways.

Not sure how that would work, Boston would have to send more, but it surely wouldn't be Rondo.

Maybe Bradley, Pierce, and O'neal for Bynum

I feel like that would be good for both sides. I think Bradley would be a nice fit with the Lakers, and than the Celtics could build around Rondo/Bynum (which would be fun to watch), actually pierce and bryant would be sick as well

It's a weird deal for both sides, I put Rondo into that mix and Barnes who makes nothing (and is an expiring) + 1 or 2 of the Lakers 2012 draft picks (both first rounders). Boston gets the 2nd best big in the league who is still 24, 2 first rounders next year, Barnes' expiring, probably Ebanks in there too.

I dunno, I think Pierce for Bynum is not enough, considering Bynum is 10 years younger than Pierce (really 10 years younger than him), and probably the 2nd best Center in the league with great potential still. And i'm sure you think Pierce + Rondo is way too much.

Bynum for Rondo doesn't work by the numbers so someone else would have to be involved. But also Bynum + Barnes + 2 first rounders for Rondo + Pierce doesn't work either. LA would need to add more players

Basically it won't get done

Denver-boy
01-22-2012, 06:58 PM
I think Lakers should be more interested in Howard, than worrying about adding pierce...unless boston wants scraps I dont think Lakers will get him.

Rondo is not gonna be included, haha get over yourselfs laker fans.

If anything big happens, I see Paul Pierce & JO for Pau Gasol, and Ebanks. thats about it if lakers miss out on Howard sweepstakes. cuz the only way he comes if Bynum&Gasol for Howard. thats the ONLY way he lands in LA. Either way, Gasol or Bynum if leaving if you want any allstars, no ifs, thats all anyone would want from LA.

This trade would work. Wonder if there is anyway the Celtics would include Ray Allen.

I would also consider Pau Gasol for Rondo and Ray allen if there is any truth to these rumors.

I just dont see any deal with the Celtics for Pau or Drew without Rondo.

The celtics did try and trade Rondo not to long ago so I dont think he is
untouchable.

Also I dont think the Lakers consider this trade scenario until they find out what is going on with Dwight and Dwill. I take Dwill over Rondo if I had the choice though.

My reasonable trade that I posted since December is Scola and Lowry for Gasol. I would prefer that over all other pg trades for the Lakers. ( Even over DWill. )

Pierce is definitely still a capable player. Hell he's an allstar if he's on a motivated team with serious championship aspirations. If LA could find a way to get Rondo AND Pierce for Gasol and maybe picks, you have to pull the trigger. Gasol might not have much use to an aging Boston team, but if he is dealt for valuable prospects which a few teams might be willing, then it definitely needs to be done.

LA fixes their major issue of perimeter defense against quick guards with Rondo and Pierce replaces the offense they lose without Gasol. True, they don't have that twin tower advantage anymore, but as it stands, they aren't a legit contender. With a Rondo-Kobe-Pierce-Bynum core, they probably are assuming Bynum can stay healthy. It's a gamble you have to take if you're LA. Then you hope McRoberts and Murphy can handle spot minutes at PF or else maybe Kenyon Martin comes in at around March and saves the day.

Either way, it makes LA a complete team and VERY dangerous come playoff time.

Wow. Way to show your basketball IQ. Ok I'll humor you. It's a just a bit easier to score on a team which is horrible defensively than your average team. They're giving up almost 100 points a night. There are currently only 5 teams that even average 100. Therefore a player, in theory, would be more likely to have a high scoring game against them. Though not necessarily having a great individual scoring season overall.

In conclusion there is a reason the Wizards, the team Pierce played well against, are currently called chicken soup.

Well it is if you think about the way Gasol has played this year. Which is like garbage. Pierce is still good and can help a lot. Rondo is the PG they desperately need. And Artest is, well Artest. It won't happen, but it'd help LA if it did.

Pierce was 10-15 for 34 points, and added 10 assists and 8 rebounds.

Two games prior, against the Wizards, it took Kevin Durant 24 shots to drop 33 points.

Remind me how that makes Pierce washed up?

You're just hating. Pierce is coming off the most efficient season of his career last year. The only reason he got off to a slow start this year is because he hurt his heel half way through training camp, stalling his conditioning.

You have absolutely no evidence to support your claim that Pierce is 'old and washed up'.

Pierce is having a career low in scoring, shooting the second worse fg% of his career, is having trouble finishing at the rim, and came in to camp flabby, out of shape, and gimpy. He's also 34 (a Paul Pierce 34, not to be confused with a Kobe 34). Now you can say the season is still young and he may eventually magicly get in shape which may be true but I wouldn't risk a good player on it.

Anything else?

Corey
01-23-2012, 12:59 AM
Have you ever heard the term 'sample size'?

As I JUST said, he's coming off the most efficient season of his career, and his slow start can be credited to his injured heel and lack of conditioning due to his injured heel.

Using the first 15 games of a post-lockout season is enough evidence to say someone is washed up?

I guess Brandon Jennings is a better player than Dwyane Wade as well, right? According to your 15 game sample size logic, that is..

Gasol is well known to lack the resolve, focus, work ethic and aggression to be a team's no. 1 option. He's even lost his spot as no. 2 on the lakers. He had a spotty track record with both Memphis, barely a playoff team with him as no. 1, as well as with the Lakers, where he now languishes with a hobbled Bynum surpassing him as Kobe's top lackey.

Add to that an enormous contract, as well as the embarrassment of Odom's post Lakers effort, and the incentive to trade for Gasol is near absent.

I would not be surprised if Gasol continues to disappoint with 13-15 pts a game for the remainder of his so-called peak years and then disappeared as an odd footnote in the Lakers' legacy as a player who barely scratched the surface of his potential.

Separate transactions.

Say if LA made a deal with Orlando. They could do Bynum for Dwight, Duhon, and Q. The TPE would be for q and Duhon. Bynum and picks, cash for Dwight would be a separate trade. 2 different transactions like when you split a bill on two credit cards

Would probably need a 3rd team in there because i don't think the lakers really have anyone the celtics wants outside of bynum or gasol

there is about ZERO chance that this happens.

that being said, IF a trade were to somehow miraculously happen between these two teams (assuming a third teamisnt involved, if it is then that could change things drastically), bynum would have to be going back to boston. boston is trying to rebuild. tying up a near 20 million in salary for a 32 year old mentally mushy pf/c for a few years doesnt make any sense. bynum would make a lot more sense.

Bynum isn't coming to Boston unless Rondo's involved in a deal, and I dont see it happening.

They aren't trading Bynum for Pierce :laugh2:

Yes they can, I remember doing one where ESPN trade machine gave me options of using it. Unless ESPN trade machine doesn't have the CBA thing fully correct in their system.
That's not how it works.

You can't trade the rights to a TPE.

They can acquire a player for just a pick as long as the player's salary is within the range of the TPE (in this case, 9 million)

Gasol, Bynum, Artest and Walton for Rondo, Pierce, O'neal and Garnett.

What in the word are you smoking..?

I still think this deal will not happen because getting rid of Pierce's contract is unnecessary. The Celtics already have everyone outside of Bass, Pierce and Rondo coming off the books and that should give them more than enough cap room to be relevant in free agent discussions next off-season. With the season lost and trade value for any one of their Big Three low anyway, the best scenario might be just to let them off the books.

Gasol. Involve a 3rd team that has something the C's want. Gasol goes to third team, Pierce to Lakers, pieces from 3rd team to Celtics.

His USG% is in the low 20s. If he can coexist with KG+Allen the first year he can do it with Kobe.

People said the samething a month back or so about the CP3 to L.A deal happening and I said one thing. Get a 3rd team involved and who knows what can happen and they did and if not for Stern that deal would have been done.

If a 3rd team gets involved who knows what will happen but if we are talking getting this done straight up there is no way it happens.

I don't understand why the Lakers would pursue Pierce. I was under the assumption that they were looking to make a move to acquire Dwight Howard and in a subsequent trade get a PG. I couldn't imagine Pierce in a Lakers Jersey. I always hoped that he would retire a Celtic.

Lakers get Pierce,Garnett,Allen and Oneal for Bynum,Gasol,MWP and Ebanks

Lakers restructure Pierce and Bryants Contract with two more years and to be extemely back heavy. Like starts at five million and ends up at the 25-30 million on last two years.

Then the lakers sign Dwill and Dwight. resign Garnett and Allen to MlE or Min.

Deron/Blake
Kobe/Allen
Pierce/Barnes
Garnett/Mcbob/Murphy
Howard/Oneal

Then celtics flip Gasol,Stesima,Bradley and Ebanks and a Pick to Houston for Kmart,Twill,Hill,Flynn and Scola

Rondo//Flynn
Kmart/Twill
Green/MWP/
Scola/Bass
Bynum/Hill

The only player on the Celtics worth trading for would be Rondo. How could the Lakers acquire any big named player without including Gasol or Bynum.
Of the former "Big 3", Pierce I would imagine is going to be the hardest to get.

I know man, but I was saying what if, No way that team could lose..Howard covering garnetts age and garnett pumping everyone up. Ray being a sixth man. pierce and Kobe hit clutch shots and deron feeding all of them ,deron would avg 15 dishes a night.


Do you really think it will happen?:D

Would be good for both teams celtics get way younger and lakers are put in win now and the next few years mode with a couple of younger pieces to transition to in Dwight and Williams.

Wow. Way to show your basketball IQ. Ok I'll humor you. It's a just a bit easier to score on a team which is horrible defensively than your average team. They're giving up almost 100 points a night. There are currently only 5 teams that even average 100. Therefore a player, in theory, would be more likely to have a high scoring game against them. Though not necessarily having a great individual scoring season overall.

In conclusion there is a reason the Wizards, the team Pierce played well against, are currently called chicken soup.

Your welcome!


Believe I said "basketball IQ" and my logic is sound because I don't think Paul Pierce made history against the Wiz. He just had a "good game" which you chose to use as some sort of proof that he still has game.

You're welcome.


Pierce is having a career low in scoring, shooting the second worse fg% of his career, is having trouble finishing at the rim, and came in to camp flabby, out of shape, and gimpy. He's also 34 (a Paul Pierce 34, not to be confused with a Kobe 34). Now you can say the season is still young and he may eventually magicly get in shape which may be true but I wouldn't risk a good player on it.

Anything else?
You were saying?

:facepalm::facepalm: does anyone know how a TPE works???

You can't trade a TPE, a TPE is created when a team sheds salary in a trade and they can take on salary in a future trade. You CAN'T just send it to another team.

3 way deal!!

- Rockets acquire PF P.Gasol & SF M.World Peace
- Lakers acquire SF P.Pierce & PF L.Scola
- Celtics acquire C H.Thabeet, SG K.Martin, & Rockets 2012 1st rd pick.

Then in some crazy way.. the rockets can flip the contract of Metta world Peace in a 3-way deal w/the Nets & knicks!

- Knicks acquire PG D.Williams & SF M.World Peace
- Nets acquire SF Melo & PG J.Flynn
- Rockets acquire C J.Petro & 2012 1st rd pick(v/Nets).

Lakers need to call Houston and work this out

Pau Gasol and their best 2012 #1 draft pick for Kyle Lowry, Luis Scola, and Terrence Williams

Lakers get quick PG, solid PF to play with Bynum, and a better SF who can split time with Barnes.

Rockets get solid big and a draft pick to help rebuild.

Best 2012 draft scenario for Rockets - 3 picks
They get Terrence Jones SF Kentucky, Kendal Marshall PG UNC, and John Henson PF UNC.

2012-13 Rockets
Starting 5 - Marshall, K. Martin, T. Jones, Henson, and Gasol

* Could work out favorably for both teams.
