Pacers get- Gasol, Ebanks, Blake, Mavs 1st

Lakers get- Granger, West, Collison

With this trade the Lakers get everything they need and a really good starting 5. Granger and Collison are both in their 20s and Granger can take over when Kobe is done. West is a pretty good replacement for Gasol.

Pacers have 2 beasts down low, George Hill can now be the starting PG and Paul George can now play SF and be the star player.

Lakers lineup-

Bynum
West
Granger
Kobe
Collison

Pacers lineup-

Hibbert
Gasol
George
Jones
Hill

What do you think?

I think switching Collison for Hill would make it a lot closer

Ya probably. Im just thinking that Hill didn't really get his shot yet and they gave up that 1st round pick last year for him. I guess either one could make it a good deal though.

True, but I feel Pacers are giving up a decent prize, and you would probably value Collison over Hill.

I dont think the Pacers would do that deal at all.

You're giving up 3 good starters for Pau Gasol.

Lakers dont have any other players/assets to even that deal out, so its completely lopsided in improving the Lakers.

I really don't get why the Pacers would do this deal, they give up 3 starters for an aging Pau.
