    I like this approach better than taking Gasol directly. Would try to get Shved from minn instead of Barea, and would want to be sure we could sign Pav.

    Ok, Kahn is a crazy GM, but he's not LOONEY LIKE BABCOCK. Stop this speculation and proposals.

    by the sounds of it , theyre more likely to move K-love, so i doubt Williams is available.

    Yes, I read that. Love really does not like being in Minnesota.

    I'd absolutely love if something like this happened:

    It is Khan so anything is possible.

    Twolves are the whitetest team in the modern NBA history (probably)

    This could almost work. Don't think we could get Derrick Williams - but could probably get Buddinger or Cunningham instead. Also, could we play Pek on Jonas together...or is the goal to be able to deal Jonas
    I think this version would be more realistic:
    Lakers Get: Calderon, Bargnani, Amir
    Twolves get: Pau Gasol and Blakeb
    Raptors Get: Buddinger, Ridnour, Pekovic

    I had roughly the same idea:

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=cxnpdec

    Lakers get: Calderon / Bargnani / Fields (or Kleiza) & Williams [essentially a whole high-end bench]

    Wolves get: Gasol [whom they want] & Johnson-Odom [filler]

    Raptors get: Roy / Pekovic / Blake & Duhon and maybe some draft picks

    Raptors get a lot less in terms of talent but clear loads of salary/cap space (something like $8 million in yr 1, $3 million in yr 2 and $20 million in yr 3), get Pekovic (who would be a highly desirable commodity) and change the culture of the team (no Bargs).

    Getting Roy, Blake and Duhon kind of sucks but that is the price of dumping a guy like Bargnani.

    Edit to add: if the Raps really want their draft pick back (this year) they could then look at trading with OKC.

    Thunder get: Pekovic and Duhon

    Raps get: Perkins, Maynor and 1st back

    Not a great trade for the Raps but they do complete the reset and endure several years of suffering while stockpiling talent. OKC does this because Pekovic is better than Perkins and they save quite a bit on salary and cap.
