Lakers want to trade him, they tried two times, one at draft day one on the Paul fiasco.


Magic is demmanding both pau and Bynum but would be in their best interest to make it a three way where they get youngsters or picks and pau goes to other team.


There have been week rumours bout Warriors, Bulls, Raptrs, Wolves having expressed some interest.

Boston could be interested in sending one of the expirings too.

So.Who do you think making a play for him?

Pau has been quietly good this year as always. Yeah his ppg are down, but that's mostly to do with Bynum getting 5+ more shots per game. Pau can easily average 20 and 10 with most other teams. Consider that he's averaging 16.2 and 9.4 rpg and we still don't know what the hell we're doing with Brown's offense, I'd say he's been pretty good. He and his brother are the two best passing big men in the NBA.

Now... to the question lol. If LA gets a pg without giving up one of their big 3... I think he stays. LA can use it's TPE or 2 first rounders to get someone of pretty decent value if they had to.

However if they struggle, I can see him moving. Too early to say what teams though. I'm sure the Knicks or Bulls would do a Boozer or STAT for Gasol deal in a heartbeat. Obviously LA wouldn't though.

Gasol won't be coming over to Toronto. The Raps have a plethora of bigs (Amir, Davis, Magloire, Gray, Bargs, & Valanciunas coming over next season) and simply don't have any room for Gasol even if a package of Amir/Davis+ is going to LA.

Gasol still has high value, one of very few players that can play PF and Center effectively.

A team that comes to mind is the Warriors. I think Monta would probably have to go in that case, but a front line of Lee + Gasol is nice. All of a sudden they become a better rebounding team, and Gasol is an underrated shot blocker, so he can get around 2 blocks per game. Offense seems like it'd be more balanced and could really open up amazing things for Steph. Imagine Steph going P&R with either Lee or Gasol anytime he wants? They'd also have a deeper rotation with their bigs now, particularly because Biedrins seems always injured too. Warriors don't have any picks either right? LA has 2, but the two players' contracts wouldn't match anyways. Gasol makes like 4-5 mill more than Monta.

i wonder if denver would sacrifice some depth to have a a line up like this

Lawson,rudy, Gallo, Nene, Gasol.

they coudl use some of these dudes ( not all of them) afflalo, Miller, harrington, martin, and sign and trade Jr and Chandler in a three way with orlando and l.A

I wouldn't think Denver would change anything though because Al is playing pretty well right now too. But a Nene + Pau front line would be ridiculous.

I dunno Pau is making 7 mill more than Ellis actually, so it'd have to be Monta + Wright/Udoh + another player. In all likelihood a 3rd team would need to come into the picture.

Pau + Blake + Matt Barnes for Lee + Monta works, but I doubt either team does that

Yeah that would be a disaster. It's tough to trade with the Warriors because I don't think they have any first round picks this year do they? I could be wrong.

Pau + Blake + Barnes + 1st rounder for Monta and Lee works, but again, I don't think either team would do that. Don't know if Gstate would give up those two, and I don't think LA would want Lee's contract back. Probably impossible unless a 3rd team was involved.

Boozer for Pau adds nothing for the Lakers, but makes them worse.

This trade works:

Knicks get Pau Gasol + Steve Blake
Lakers get Monta + Lee
Warriors get Amare + Matt Barnes + Ebanks + Morris + Mavs 1st rounder + Lakers 1st rounder + Knicks pick


Lol terrible idea I know, just playing around with the trade machine

But I was just thinking... the Knicks get rid of Amare who is still a good player and would probably be very good with Curry in the P&R game. They get Gasol's lighter contract back in terms of years. Warriors get Amare, Barnes (who's also an expiring) young players and picks (which they lack right now). Lakers get Monta + David Lee, which I'd expect Lee to get flipped for Howard in a deal lol. Knicks also get Blake who would be their backup to Baron. Warriors actually cap space too.

Look how easy it is being a GM

Haha probably not. But I'd say the Warriors need to do something. Lee is on the books for 4 more years after this one, plus I mean they just aren't going to compete with these guys. Also they have 1 draft pick for next year, and it's a 2nd rounder. Why not get Amare + young players + multiple picks (Lakers have 2 first rounders they can give up, Knicks can give up future considerations). They also save money with this deal (in terms of cap space for the year after) Lee + Ellis make around 24 mill next year, Amare makes under 20 and the players I mentioned to be fillers are all expiring deals. The only two teams with a worse record then them are the Kings + Hornets who are probably worse than the Wizards

Bynum, Pau, Eubanks, 2 1st Round picks for Howard, Anderson, and Hedo.

Doubt that happens though. Lakers won't give up both plus their two first rounders unless a 3rd team is involved and they get a really good pg or good pf back. Bynum + Pau is arguably the best frontline in basketball, the Laker frontline is not their weakness at this point. And why would they give up their 2 first rounders in this scenario? No offer has come close to that, and the Lakers would be dumb to go all in for Howard. This draft is pretty solid, best in a long time IMO, and those 2 picks regardless of being late 1st rounders are more equivalent to the talent pool of the players that went 10-20 last year, if not better. Last years draft was pretty awful, but this year when you take into consideration all the players that didn't go in the draft last year due to the lockout, those players will be solid, way better than the 20-30 picks of this past year.

Boozer is garbage and overrated, sorry Bulls fans. His best years (when he actually gave full effort) was his last yr in Cleveland and his first 2-3 yrs in Utah. Then injuries, laziness and big fat contract got in the way of him becoming possibly one of the best power forwards in the game. That's when he started to just settle for jumpshot after jumpshot.

Oh and btw, Gasol has always dominated Booz in the playoffs.

With Bogut out the Bucks may want to consider this trade

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=6o4gd7e

This trade gives us the needed PG, PF, and a great bench player.
This trade gives the Bucks a Center/PF, two good future NBA stars, and flexibility to sign a FA 2012-2013

Millsap and Harris would be nice if Harris wasn't so terrible right now. Although Millsap is absolutely beasting. Although Harris is still far better than any Lakers PG, I would seriously consider it if theres no better deal for the Lakers. Maybe ask for CJ Miles, Hayward, or Burks.

i dont think anyone will offer what he's worth to the Lakers.

he's a 31 year old PF who's played a lot of games over the past four years, who appears to be on the decline. his statistics are down across the board, as is he efficiency. I think he's worth more to the Lakers than what anyone will give. over summer, you could claim the post season was a fluke. but his numbers from this year seem to be supporting the notion of decline.

although, he looked 2010 finals fantastic against the clippers. maybe he can raise his trade value.

they wouldnt have made that trade then either. no way sixers would have dealt jrue for anyone, theyve been very high on him since they drafted him which is why the drafted him.
