As a Laker fan I am interested to see what Scola can get for them. Maybe they can be flipped in a trade along with Lowry for Pau

I wouldn't want his contract on my team. Can't they just amnesty him if they don't want him?

You don't amnesty a player who has value.

Thats why I'm interested to see what players/picks would be given up to acquire Scola. Maybe a couple could be useful to the Lakers and they wouldn't have to take on Scola's contract

They wont ever admit to tanking, but I really hope this is a precursor to doing just that. Blow it up Les

Amare for Scola?

Hopefully he is traded but he will be missed. One of the hardest workers in the league.

You don't amnesty a player who has value.

Tell that to the Raptors who are amnesting a top 15 or top 20 pg.

I was already thinking the same thing. Amare and Douglas for Scola and Martin sort of package.

Houston gets an All Star level Talent in the frontcourt which they've been craving. And the Knicks get players better suited to play with Carmelo. Scola a smarter player than Amare and Martin a great 3pt shooter from the corner.

I would love to see this trade go down. Hopefully, Scola and Martin could come off the bench. Imagine.

Vet Pg/Lin
Shumpert/Martin/ Jr Smith
Fields/ JR Smith/ Novak
Carmelo/ Scola/ Novak
Chandler/ Jeffries/

I think they could compete.

True, but Scola is also owed over thirty million dollars. I should have said, a player with value and a large multi-year deal.

Calderon is in the final year of a deal and the Raps want to clear up as much cap space as they can to make a run at Nash. Rockets could amnesty him but you dont do that without first looking to trade, and there is no FA I know of for them to target.

As to Knicks fans saying "Amar'e for Scola/Martin", no thanks. If you think Scola's contract is bad, Amar'e is 10 times worse.

No thanks. We're trying to get younger and cheaper, and as we all know, Boozer has a terrible contract.

lowry + if whatever scola might get traded for is useful to the lakers

for gasol

Scola is a player who will transcend age pretty well because he was never fast and has always had like a 6" vertical. His game comes from his cardio, wit, and tenacity.

I would definently do Scola and Martin for Amar'e and whoever any day however.

I wouldn't even trade Lowry for Gasol straight up so ....

They are trying to rebuild. Why keep veterans like Scola when the team is rebuilding.

But Amare is a better player and bigger name.

Yuck. Scola is undersized, old, and bad contract. :puke:

Yeah old undersized and still scored 5,597 points and had almost 3,000 rebounds amongst other statistics, in 5 years. I know, statistics shmatistics. But you don't put up those types of numbers when you are undersized and old!

K-Mart or Lowry/ Scola for Gasol and Blake not saying i want this but Lakers want Gasol out so bad might do it.

In fantasyland where Dwight Howard stays in Orlando, he'd be a great fit at PF for the Magic. I'd S&T Anderson and something else for him...

Scola's contract is not that bad. If I was Philly I dangle Brand's expiring contract + cash straight up for Scola.

But this all hinges on how realistic Scola's final year is of becoming guaranteed. If he has 2 years $20M it's not that bad. But if that final year gets guaranteed through performance incentives, then 3 years $32M is pretty bad.
