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.
plus it gives us a 20 million dollar trade chip next year
we keep him for two years...by then Ed Davis will be primed to start
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.
So I came across this on realgm, got really happy. Then I read the last line of the article and almost broke my TV
i like gasol but why would the lakers even want bargs?

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