    There are pros and cons but at the end of the day AB needs to be moved.

    Real gm reported the same thing but said that BC has shown no willingness to give up AB. He needs to swallow his pride admit he's not the drafting god and trade one of his picks for once.

    I am really not a fan of Pau, but it would be good for JV, and with his expiring contract in a few years, and I think good for the future.

    Bargnani, just such a disappointment.

    Default RealGM: Rival Execs: Raptors Most Likely To Acquire Pau Gasol If Lakers Make Trade

    So I came across this on realgm, got really happy. Then I read the last line of the article and almost broke my TV

    He fits more with the D'Antoni system. The Mike D'Antoni hates post up player and Gasol is probably one of the best post-up PF in the NBA right now. Bargnani loves to shoot long-range 3s and 2s rather than post-up which is what D'Antoni wants and fits his seven seconds or less offensive system. Gasol has shown that he is uncomfortable and unwilling to conform to the new offensive system, so the Lakers feels like he should go. Not only are the Lakers doing this for Bargnani but they are doing this for Calderon. The Lakers are in desperate need of a PG right now especially since Kobe can't be playing the main distributor on the team for long. Nash might be coming back but you never know how injuries will affect his performance, so having Calderon will help distribute the ball. Also, the Lakers bench is horrible. Calderon will help give some spark off the bench. We can shoot the ball and help set up their bench players for easy shots. The only downside to having Calderon as a back up is the lack of defense in the PG position. Both Nash and Calderon are notorious for their bad defense, so that hurts them especially in the Western Conference playoffs against athletic and explosive point guards like Parker, Westbrook, Conley, Paul, and Lawson.

    If this is true and we do trade Bargnani and Calderon for Gasol, it probably won't happen for another 3-5 weeks.

    http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap...nt_Trade_Gasol

    Nash was promised that Lakers won't trade Gasol so they have to try to convince Nash to reconsider when he comes but that would be a long time. Nash won't be back until two weeks if not next week. If the Lakers did promise Nash that they won't trade Gasol, it will take 2-3 weeks or so for them to change is mind. So don't expect to see any trade go down for another 5 weeks or so...

    kobe gets what kobe wants. if kobe thinks he doesn't want to be bffs with pau no more then nash can remember he is already signed for 3 years. is he going to demand a trade away from his kids?

    This is such a random trade though. As much as it would be an upgrade, Gasol is not what we need. It's too late to make the playoffs this year. And we better be getting a ball handler back, because by the looks of things John Lucas III is not equipped to ride shotgun this year.

    i think pau would be exactly what we need this year. that and getting rid of amir. i would send amir out for anything another team would give for him, addition by subtraction. pau is a winner and a perrenial all star, a real banger down low. great in practice for ed/bigV and great for everyone in the locker room. guy has been in playoff game 7s and come out a winner. if that kind of player doesn't demand respect in the locker room then our kids can't be taught.

    a bargs for pau trade is best for both players. bargs can go somewhere where he will excel and pau will be put back on the low block where he excels at. the rest of this year might be salvaged and definitly next year, even if we lose our pick, we will be better and finally the next year he is 20 million trade chip or right off the payroll.

    But at least we will sell tickets, build a "winning culture" and have a mentor for 2 of our young bigs. Im sure Gasol can teach Davis and Valnciunas a lot.

    Lol if we get gasol I bet Nash will wish he chose the raptors instead. But seriously BC needs to put on HIS big boy pants and do this trade.

    It's okay. If we keep losing and attendance goes down a bit (since we suck atm), I'm pretty sure the pressure will have BC starting to poop his big boy pants and do the trade. I hope...

    Whatever. I'll wait for a better report to come out before I jump to any conclusions. But, fwiw, I hate the idea.

    I'm wondering if there's any credence to "tendinitis". Sounds like Lakers are preventing further injuries, etc.

    if AB isn't involved, i don't care to do this trade because anyone else we trade would probably delay our future progress.
