These guys are all checked out and it starts with the coaching. If/when Nash and Gasol return we're going to start seeing things pick up. Will it be enough? I have no idea. My head tells me no, but my heart says this team has something if they can just get off the ground.

It's easy to get frustrated and get down, that's what our damn team is doing. It's more difficult to take this blow on the chin and get up and say "it's alright, we're not there yet, we have a lot of work to do".

I think this team could really use a tweak and that tweak would be trading Gasol's albatross attitude for a young, hungry guy, but who knows if that's available or feasable? We SHOULD be able to win with Gasol I know that.




if we trade gasol, and i agree with magic, that it'll just blow the team up, and relinquish any confidence at a chance of winning the title.

I don't agree with that. It depends on who you bring in. Say we found a way to trade Gasol for Kevin Love. Would that rob this team of it's Championship aspirations?

J Hill, Morris for Dorrell Wright
Sign West
Sign Martin
Waive Clark

Howard (36)/Pau (12)/Sacre
Pau (20)/ Jamison (24)/ Martin (4)
MWP (32)/Wright (16)/Ebanks
Kobe (32)/ Meeks (16)
Nash (30)/ West (18)/Blake/Duhon

Pau gets a quarter of a game to run the ball through him in the post. We get a shooter at the 3. Much better defenders (martin and west) who bring the edge we're missing. West can guard Westbrook, CP3, Lawson, etc. IMO much more balanced.

then go for Korver or Morrow. But we need a shooter at SF and Pau needs to get the backup C mins. Hill just moans on the bench when he doesn't play.

1. Korver is hurt I'm pretty sure, Morrow has been awful.
2. I don't know if I've ever seen Hill moaning about not playing.

you're an astute watcher of laker games and you never noticed the difference in his body language when he plays vs doesn't play?

I've seen him sit at the end of the bench and not react to change in the game, get up for huddles, or even really look interested in whats around.

Not saying it's the best trade, but we need a shooter and it gives us more mins for Pau at C.

No I haven't. And even if he's not jumping up and down on the bench, when he's in the game he's working harder than anyone on the court so I don't see any problem at all.

If we're trading Hill, we're going to look for something very, very nice back. He's young and he's on an incredibly favorable contract. If we traded him for just another "shooter" we'd be making a terrible mistake. We need that depth, but if we attach Jordan to a contract we don't like, we can get back something nicer than Wright or Morrow. Those two haven't done anything great all season long.

Do we see any action, or at least have any juicy rumors with today being Dec 15th?

Rumors probably, I doubt we see any action.

If the FO is determined to wait until Nash/Gasol return then why jump now? It's not like we've lost 4 in a row (is it 5 now)? Ugh. :man10:

If we LOSE tonight then maybe we see some action, but I'm thinking we're sitting on our wallets until everyone is back and they PROVE they can't mesh.

Bell not ready for buyout
4:00
PM ET
Raja Bell | Jazz
RECOMMEND0COMMENTS0EMAIL

The Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls remain interested in adding Raja Bell to their rosters, but nothing is imminent, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

"The Lakers have pushed back their pursuit of exiled Utah Jazz shooting guard Raja Bell, understanding there's a short-term priority to investigate clearing a roster spot to add a point guard," he wrote. "The Chicago Bulls have shown a willingness to sign Bell to a non-guaranteed deal, but that hasn't inspired Bell to agree to a buyout with the Jazz, sources said."

Bell and the Jazz have been working to some extent on a buyout for months, but nothing has come of it. It likely will take the right opportunity and money to convince Bell to relent and leave money on the table with the Jazz.

- Tom Carpent


Why the hell are we still going after Bell? :man3:

Because we're probably considering using him as a backup SF since ours doesn't play or deserve to play :man10:

Raja Bell is a career 40% 3 pt shooter. We still need more shooters for Antoni's system to work.

bell is one greedy mofo though, he wants out but still haven't come to agreement, compare this to fisher...he gave up a portion of last year salary and this year guranteed contract just so he could go where he wants.

We need another floor spacing SF and another PG and then I think we'll be okay. The PG wouldn't be necessary if our guard rotation was healthy obviously but Duhon+Morris won't cut it anymore
