If we can't get a starting SF return for Gasol, I'd be down for Barea/Williams/Kirilenko or something like that.
They pull that off and they've got a pretty exciting team still. What with Shved coming out and maybe Budinger coming back. Sure they lose Kirilenko, but he's honestly the only worthwhile piece in the trade.
i was only half-joking. the lakers wouldn't go for him because his contract extends into 2014, though, and i don't really blame them.
and really, i think ak/williams/jjb is, sadly, a lot more than the lakers will end up getting for pau. ak himself was probably a better player than pau this year. actually, scratch probably. he was way better, imo.
I don't think THAT package is available, but I think Pau is worth more because of a) his size b) his contract and c) his contract.
Obviously AK was better this season, but Pau has missed already 2/3s of what we've played and he's likely to miss the rest of the season as well.
I think there's packages out there we could get that'd send back 2-3 really solid athletes with one of those guys have some really solid potential.
