I would be fine with pau being traded. But before i'd pull that trade, i'd try moving him to the bench. Sorry pau, but you're not the same player anymore. Would rather have him as the backup center in his natural positions, than starting pf. Thought this should be done since the first game the big 4 played together against sacramento in the preseason. Reason why he keeps getting burned and blown by is because they're putting a slow CENTER in pick and rolls. He's not a power forward, and can't play it anymore. He used to be able to handle it, but he just can't anymore. ESPECIALLY not at his age. I would rather have jamison start in his place. It would definitely spread the floor and give dwight room to wreak havok in the low post surrounded by 3pt shooters in the lineup. Creating an environment similar to orlando. And off the bench, pau wont be put in as many pick n rolls as the back up center, because he'll be guarding centers as slow as he is. He'll still be playing 30 mins a night, much like crawford, or terry.
starters: Nash, kobe, metta, jamison, dwight (still a helluva starting lineup)
Bench: Blake, meeks, ebanks, hill, pau
Only problems I can see this causing is defense. But I would think that jamison would be better dealing with quick guards getting switched in pick n rolls than gasol, who has been horrible in this aspect since 2011.So it might not affect it as much as people think. But if that too doesn't work. Might as well trade gasol. Smith may not be the better player, but he definitely is the better player for what we NEED. Athleticism, youth, speed, and defense.
