http://www.hoopsworld.com/sixers-consider-pau-gasol-for-iguodala


Just like last offseason, forward Andre Iguodala is connected to more trade rumors than any of his teammates. The 28-year-old forward has been mentioned in a possible deal involving the Los Angeles Lakers and center/forward Pau Gasol, something the Sixers front office will neither confirm nor deny.

via John N. Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer

dont see much point for the sixers, unless they decide to amnesty brand

if they acquire pau, they must pay him 22 million i believe, due to a clause in his contract, that bumps his salary up if traded

philly isnt going anywhere, i agree with trading iggy, but not unless its bringing you back a draft pick, or a young player to add to their core of young and holiday

it doesnt make sense for them to get older and add a pau gasol, he isnt enough to get them into the ECF, or make them contenders

i say they shld skip iggy out to a team that will net them a young player, draft pick, or a scorer to help their offense like rudy gay

for the lakers, i do this, only if you kniw you can sign a starting quality big, because as is, the lakers front court depth is horrid

I would consider it if we had a plan to get Harrison Barnes and a good solid center. But we don't. So no thanks.

Like i said in the other thread......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umDr0mPuyQc


this move ensures another run to mediocrity for Philly. We don't need a 32 year old Pau. A 26 year old Pau? Absolutely. But history has shown that the Sixers should steer clear of 30+ year old PF's.

Or do I really need to bring up Chris Webber and Elton Brand again?

It would be a great pickup for the lakeshow, but awful for my sixers.

i wanted this trade after the 2011 playoffs. i doubt phili takes up a washed up Gasol, and his bloated contract. although if they did, i'm sure he'd have a revival in phili, where they might use him correctly.

While I agree with you, Webber and Brand had knee surgeries before coming here I think? So not the best comparison.

We won't be contenders, and won't be in better shape for the future. Iggy needs to be traded for youth.

They did, but they were both 30 as well, Pau will be 32.

I would rather keep Pau than have a Pau for Iggy swap. Just Iggy is not worth it. He is about to hit 30, lose his athleticism, and just become a mediocre player.

Iggy for Amare

that's even worse lol.

I don't think any team is looking to acquire Amare after his last year. I know he had a lot of issues (can't be easy playing after your brother dies midseason) but the fire hydrant incident, his surprisingly fast decline, and absurd contract, are huge red flags for any team.

Shame because he was being talked about as an MVP candidate before they got Carmelo.

Now look where they're at.

Trading for Pau Gasol is a complete conflict of interests for us. We are an extremely young team and need another 2-3 years to grow into a contender(hopefully we get there). By the time our core is truly ready to compete, Pau either won't be very good anymore or just flat out won't be here. We'd be much better served to package Iggy in a deal to get a young veteran big man(such as Al Jefferson) or a higher draft pick to get someone like Andre Drummond.

Trading for Pau seems to be a 'win now' move for a team that isn't ready to win yet.

Start Ron there ala Anthony Mason. He has the size and strength. Hell he has the shooting, athleticism, and speed at PF. He can easily be the spread 4 next to Bynum and open the court up while also getting to play in his comfort zone moreso.

Another crazy twist would be to steal from Phil and start Iggy with Kobe and Ron on the perimeter, telling Sessions to kick rocks. Not like his shot is any worse with the lights on bright, and to be blunt the 90 year old love child of Fish and Smush could still D up better than Ramon

They could also just run Kobe and Iggy as starters, and then take an in shape Ron like at the end of last season when he was a double digit guy and give him the green light and 30 minutes still at SF with Iggy shifting down to SG while Kobe rests.

I like the idea of Iggy for Pau for LA. I sorta like it for Phili. I love it for Iggy, Kobe, Ron, and Brown. I hate OT for Pau though as he is so sensitive and those fans and media will chew his soft *** up if he plays like he did the past two postseasons for them

GoneGuru
06-25-2012, 09:21 AM
Sixers need the size, because they have the perimeter guys to make up for the loss of iggy.

lakers are ******** tho, gasol is still good for 17 and 10, while iguodala is versatile, the only reason the lakers are any good is because of all their skilled big men. remember where kobe was before the advent of bynum and the arrival of gasol.... im waiting.

also you can pay elton brand 18 mill a year to be undersized and get out produced by lavoy allen yet you wont pay for a guy who can play center somewhat effectively for you?

what?

06-25-2012, 11:18 AM
It doesnt make sense for Sixers, but not because of Pau being "washed up" wich is far from true, he ha sbeen misused in favour of Jim buss pet.

It doesnt make sense for sixers because getting Pau would be a WIN now move, and if you are bout WIN NOW trading your best player makes NO sense, to win now you try to get igoudala AND pau togheter offering say, Lou Will , your pick this year and another pick other year and Brand for example.

06-25-2012, 11:21 AM
This would be a great trade for the lakers, but not for the sixers. Not worth it to get Gasol given their current situation.

The Ooh Child
06-25-2012, 11:54 AM
I really like Gasol, but it doesn't make sense for us. We need a big man, and Pau could give a few great years, but we aren't contenders with him. Trading Iggy for young talent takes us in the direction of trying to build a contender. Bringing in Gasol would pretty much just keep us where we are for another couple of years.

Juice4o2
06-25-2012, 12:28 PM
As a Sixer fan I would love to see Pau in our uniform. Everyone says we won't be contenders and we would be getting to old and Gasol is washed up. First off you have to try and win now because every season that goes by and if we are still mediocre, then fans will start asking for Collins head and trading some of the younger talent. I think Gasol is a better talent then Iggy is and I would be willing to part for Gasol. Everyone want's to trade Iggy for draft picks and younger talent, but if that happens then it would be even harder for us to make the playoffs. Iggy gives us that since of veteranship and if you trade him and amnesty Brand we have a bunch of 3 year players, 2 year players and rookies on this team. Might as well kiss the playoffs good bye.

I wouldn't mind the trade for draft picks only if we decide to attack the free agency for veteran talent. If Philly were to trade for Gasol then I would love to see them grab a Center in Zeller or grabbing a scoring guard and going after someone like Hibbert or another Center in free agency.

Yikes, Iggy for Amare? That could be a great move for both teams if Amare didn't have that cronic back problem...

I think the Pau for Iggy deal is about as close as Philly can get for equal value? Iggy could be the athletic wing player and lock down defender Kobe needs to extend his career a year or 2 longer and Gasol could be the number 1 option scorer Philly needs.

I'm sure both Philly and LA could do better with trading opportunities because I don't think Philly wins a title in the next few years so they can continue getting younger. Maybe, try to get rid of Brand's contract and start building up the talent on the bench. LA needs Iggy or someone who has some athleticism besides Kobe. The Lakers can't go into rebuilding (especially because of that local TV deal they signed) until Kobe is ready to leave the team.

At this point, hell any point, a team with Gasol as there best player will just be spinning it's wheels. A 32 year old Gasol making that money? Now even amnesty Brand and you are locked up.

If the Sixers are to trade Iggy, they should infuse the team with a young, athletic big man, and some backup guard help in case Lou walks, as well as try and nab a future pick.

Why the hell would the Lakers give up 2 first round picks when they're giving up the best player of this trade (Pau Gasol)

And the only reason the Lakers are getting rid of Gasol is because of his salary. We're trying to cut back payroll and prevent that repeat tax in 2013-2014 from kicking our *****. And you want us to take on the bad contract?

Lol that was a joke bro .. I gavethe lakers the best deal.. They can care less about salary .. If they could trade for dwight with just bynums contract on take on more money just to improve ..you think tey would care about salary ?

Its not your money bro .. Why get so offended .. These guys would pay x amount if they can improve there present and future and this obvs helps l.a 's future.. Tax and cap means nothing to owners in big markets

06-30-2012, 04:15 AM
for the people who think that iggy for pau would benefit the lakers and not the sixers...and compare them to brand and webber...stop it

Comparing Gasol's stats to players on our team last year...and keep in mind, Gasol is not the focal point of this team...Kobe, and Bynum were on this squad with him which should take away from his numbers...

Gasol would have been:

Leading scorer by 2.8 points

Leading rebounder by 3.1 rebounds

2nd in blocks behind Brand...which Gasol wasnt as much as a deep in the paint defender as Bynum was...so his role would be changed a bit.

Him and Thaddeus Young would have been the only players 50% + from the field.

Not to mention, even tough he is 32...he doesnt have the same health problems...AT ALL...that brand and webber gave us.


All of these stats come with kobe and bynum on his team...which sixers dont have value of either player which means gasol could mean so much more to our team.

To dismiss Pau Gasol would be completely foolish for the sixers

Seoulbeatz u have posted a lot...which makes me believe u care a lot about this team...but numbers dont lie...hes 32 but tell that to kevin garnett that stayed one of the best playoff players in the game at 36.

I trade Iggy for Pau and Thad for a cheaper 3 point threat that plays the 3....no questions asked we become more of a contender there than we are now.

YouAreSoWrong
06-30-2012, 04:16 AM
with that said...because lakers have bynum...a dominant big man...giving that lockdown defender and high energy well rounded offensive player to compliment kobe is a great deal for them...my point is that it makes sense from both ends

Point 1- Iggy plays the 3
