^^ This is still the kicker for me. The Lakers have been trying to get that for a while. Again, if there's an incredible trade out there for him, cool. But I doubt it. We'll see.

For me too..... but at what point does it become addition by subtraction? We will HAVE to take over 20 million in value back.... so we are either going to get another underperforming highly paid vet that may fit our system better or a number of players that will be better than 2/3 of our current bench..... either way it would seem a step in the right direction.

Shop him to Minn, its confirmed now Love is having surgery on his hand out 8-10 weeks. They're in a better position then we are for playoffs and I can see Pau being much better fit in Minn as there's currently no Post play guy and no Pek is not a post player he is a PnR player.

Lighten up guys..... long time poster with some info.... he never said HE believed it..... just putting it out there.

Man what a cranky bunch when the team isn't winning.... :man10:

I'd say that if the team WASN'T engaged in trying to trade Gasol I'd be more worried. They may have different motivations than we have however.

If Mitch has sth up his sleeve, the trade will hapen in an unexpected moment and we'll get a player we were totally not expecting. That's the Kupchaky (fun word, isn't it?) way of handling things.

I think he's going to be gone at some point. NBA executives love expiring contracts; so, the chances of him going by Feb is going to be incumbent on the fact on whether or not we have a chance at making the playoffs.

As each loss mounts up, the chances decrease, obviously. I don't think we're making the playoffs this year. So, I think we'll hold off until the summer to move his contract. It will hold more value to teams since they can rent Pau for a year and we can get the most bang for our buck.

As bad as Pau has been though is that still really enough for him? Is Derrick Williams and other role players going to save our season? I don't see it, and like others have said, why do that when Pau's value as an expiring this summer will be huge and this season is already pretty much over for us? I'd rather get the best deal we can later than take crap now.

Here's one that makes sense...

Derrick Williams, JJ Barea, Courtney Lee, Jared Sullinger, Brandon Roy to LAKERS

Pau Gasol, Devin Ebanks, Chris Wilcox to TIMBERWOLVES

Nikola Pekovic, Chris Duhon to CELTICS

The Lakers turn Pau, Duhon and Ebanks into four younger rotation players that also provide speed and athleticism. They take Brandon Roy for cap purposes, but his deal is only 2 years and he's likely retiring again anyways.

The T-Wolves don't have a lot of need for Barea when Rubio is back - Ricky and Ridnour are both ahead of him in the depth chart. In essence, they deal Pekovic and Williams to upgrade by getting their man Gasol. They're also freed from the failed Brandon Roy experiment.

The Celtics deal Courtney Lee (who isn't getting a lot of burn with Rondo, Terry and Bradley on the team) and Jared Sullinger to upgrade at the C spot with Pekovic and move KG to PF. Taking Chris Duhon's two year deal is the price of the upgrade.

Weez, I don't believe one deal will save the season. This team is in need of an overhaul ... I don't see a tweak here or there saving the season. The Lakers should try to make as many moves as they see fit to get the type of players needed to run MDA's offense. The Lakers are sooooo long in the tooth that even if got some good pieces in a Gasol trade, the rest of the team is still old and lacking athleticism. I am hopeful the Lakers could get it together but the realist in me just sees a team that is lacking in so many areas and would eventually get worked over by a young athletic team like OKC even if they made the playoffs.
