they may or may not make playoffs with what they have now, and will in either case be out at first round.

They dont need a player to secure the playoffs and maybe a 4th to 6th seed and chances to get to second round?

I just like the youth they have now. I think they would be better off finding a new starting 2 then Pau Gasol. If Gasol was younger then I think it would definitely be good for them. But this is just my opinion :p

I don't know what everyone is complaining about. The Rockets deal would be great for the Lakers. You get a 23-24 ppg scorer (44% field) in Kevin Martin and Scola who can easily put up 17 and 8 for a 32 year old Gasol who is averaging 16 ppg. I'm not sure what there is to think about.

The Houston deal is better than just getting Monta Ellis. Personally i don't see how Monta is any better than Kevin Martin.

Not a chance Ellis replacing Gasol will result in more wins. The offense will suffer even more. Ellis isn't exactly a guy who takes many high percentage shots.

This trade would put the nail in the coffin for the Lakers offense (and interior D too for that matter).

The Warriors save a ton of money with that deal by the way, and they get multiple first rounders. Still a bad deal for them. They do however get rid of Biedrins and Lee's big contracts. So that's why I doubt the Lakers do it, they wouldn't take on that kind of salary.

I'm one of the few who simply opposes trading Gasol in the first place. The Lakers are still a very dangerous postseason team, capable of beating anyone in the West. So what if their regular season record suffers. They have the intangibles much like the Celtics.

Trading means meddling with chemistry even more. Right now, that would prove costly. Gasol is still a valuable player.

But as a Spurs fan, I guess it would be very beneficial. I'd rather deal with just Bynum than both those seven footers down low.

The Rockets interest & purpose of trying to acquire Gasol was to pair him with Nene in hopes that core would help them move into the top 1/2 of the West to go along with their depth.

There's no way the Lakers and Rockets can make a trade without a 3rd team being involved. The Rockets would be stupid to trade Lowry for Gasol and that's the only thing they have outside of SG Martin with any value.

Ric Bucher reported this morning in the Bay Area that it could be for Steph Curry, Biedrins, Wright and David Lee

for Artest, Gasol and Draft picks...

Warriors want some salary dumps

Here it is in the trade machine...Lakers + 12 wins according to Hollinger.

There is no way the Lakers get all of that for Gasol. The guy is a great player, but have you seen his contract? That's the main reason he won't get a superstar in return. Nobody wants to pay Pau Gasol $19 million in a few years. Well, maybe Houston...

For real...he is never right. I wonder if he used the trade machine to come up with this.

Yep. The Black Mamba got paid...

If LA & GS were to trade, it could easily be Curry, Lee & Kwame's expiring for Gasol although I don't see LA wanting Lee's contract. No way LA would take Biedrins in place of Kwame. The 2013-14 luxury tax would suffocate them.

Lakers front office just shot it down in a press release. "Nothing is happening".

Adrian Wojnarowski: Lakers front office telling people that "nothing is happening" with Pau Gasol, league sources say. For now, anyway. Twitter

Hahaha. Unless Kyle Lowry is involved then no dice. :p

Gasol is better than any player being returned from the Rockets in that deal...

no Lowry, NO DICE......

EDIT: someone beat me to it...lol...NO DICE!
Obviously Gasol is the best player in the deal. What, did you think they were going to get players at multiple positions that were better than Gasol? That's not exactly how value works, chief.

That deal provides the Lakers with new starters at three positions. If you have actually watched Rockets games (my guess is that you haven't), you'd know that Goran Dragic is a damn good point guard who could start on half the teams in the league and who thrived as a starter when Lowry has missed games. Also, they'd be getting Scola back, in addition to two young, talented offensive SFs in Budinger and Morris, as well as a huge expiring contract in Thabeet.


The Rockets interest & purpose of trying to acquire Gasol was to pair him with Nene in hopes that core would help them move into the top 1/2 of the West to go along with their depth.

For what reason would the Rockets acquire Gasol now?

They wont be any better of a team now or moving forward.
And you would also be wrong. The current Rockets team doesn't work because they don't have enough two-way players on the floor. Guys like Martin and Scola are talented offensively, horrible defensively while Parsons and Dalembert are the exact opposite.

Gasol helps them improve not only offensively at the 4, but defensively as well. It also gives them a player to take over in big games, which they seriously lack. Also, it just flat out improves the overall talent of the roster, which should be Morey's goal at this point.

The deal would make sense for both teams. The Lakers get younger and deeper, while shedding some cap, while the Rockets get more talented overall.

You know what, I would take this deal. Get rid of an absolute negative in Artest, Lee should be able to replace Gasol with Curry picking up the PG play tremendously, and a new starting SF in Wright. Biedrins as a backup big until he expires isn't too bad either.

Curry could be the Lakers future franchise player as well along with Bynum. I really like the trade. Gives the Lakers youth and athleticism, and I think it would make them the 2nd best team out west. Lee is worse than Gasol defensively (and offensively too of course) but defense is a team game and Curry is a huge upgrade at PG both ways that could make up for that. It's not like Lee is some slouch either.

I would genuinely be happy.

EDIT: And in the offseason, amnesty Biedrins. Sure you still pay his salary, but it doesn't count against the cap and therefore saves the team a bunch of luxury tax money. Walton's deal also expires after next season.

Plus I would estatic to get rid of MWP and his terrible contract.
