The Lakers are committed to moving Pau Gasol — the fall guy for their second-round ouster against the Thunder and previous playoff failures — even if they have to take back less talent.

Damn. Are they THAT desperate to get rid of him? If I am the Lakers and I wanted to trade Gasol, I would want some good talent back in return.

lol the guy is still the 2nd to 4th best PF in the league, with a skill set that cant really be matched in the NBA right now. Ridiculous the heat that he catches.

The Knicks would be easily better with Gasol imo, and his style of play.

I doubt they wanna trade for a player with a huge contract. I think they want to trade for some young players and maybe a draft pick.

it will be hilarious if Amare somehow comes back fully healthy and starts beasting next year if he's on the Lakers. just the Knicks luck

I am sure they wont just give him away but they have to cut salary in the deal so lakers will trade for younger cheaper talent

Straight up? No. The Wolves were rumored at the deadline to want Gasol. The price is going down so the Wolves can make and offer.. Itll take more than Beasley to get Gasol..

Lakers just think his worth is through the roof but with his contract and age he isnt worth what they think.

Do you guys think its possible to somehow land Lowry, Beasley & Derrick Williams without giving up Artest?

Gasol's contract isn't as bad as people think. He's better than Boozer and Amare, more durable and can play the center spot. Problem with us (Lakers) is our lack of depth (worst bench in the NBA) and any sort of athleticism. Least athletic starting lineup ever. A 34 year old Kobe is probably our best athlete lol.

All that being said, we better get a nice package for him.

On the contrary, many players shoot up the draft board because of awesome physical evaluations and end up doing great.

Chris Johnson moved up solely due to his 40 time, Vernon Davis only got picked that high because of his combine showing, and even Darrius Heywood-Bey has turned into a good WR after everyone thought he was overpicked because of his combine results...

I'm betting Houston would want to give up Scola's contract though.

Gasol proved he is still nearly unbeatable in the post problem is we have Bynum and need more,we should've taken that Houston deal when we had the chance I doubt we can get that now,but we'll wait an see.

Gonna let people in on a secret. Bynum + Gasol has never really worked. We won our titles with Gasol + Odom out there. I mean it has worked this year, but the problem with our team still remains depth, lack of 3 point shooting, and point guard play. Need to give up one imo to get deeper.

Exactly what I said throw in scola and we have a deal.
We can flip martin and maybe the draft pick for more bench players or keep both trade for Beasley and sign odom

Sessions
Martin
Beasley
Odom
Hill

Not a bad bench.

I agree not to mention slower add artest in to that mix and we only have 2 guys with atleast average speed in sessions and Kobe so that means little to no transition offense or defense.

Zach Randolph and OJ Mayo

Lakers replace Pau with ZBO and improve their bench play the Mayo, Griz get Pau back and to play next to Marc

Conley, T Allen, Gay, Pau, Marc

This is news? Hasn't Gasol been on the trading block all year.
The fall guy should have been Mike Brown. The roster LA has is a championship roster.
Gasol is one of the reasons that team won as many games as they did.
If Kobe wasn't such a chucker and Brown knew how to run an offence... SMH!

those guys will get you back crappy players and crappy contacts while gasol will get us at least talent and cap relief.
