HOOPSWORLD: Lakers looking to deal?

The question has come up a million times and was discussed at some length by a Lakers source today. Are the Lakers, who have been struggling of late, looking to make a move?

It seems they are, as our source told us today that there are a couple is issues going on behind the scenes that could lead to a major roster move. Of course, there has been plenty of talk about the team moving Lamar Odom, and it makes a degree of sense to link the Lakers with the Charlotte Bobcats in this area. The Bobcats are shopping basically everyone, and Gerald Wallace could solve some problems that are currently facing the Lakers.

Let's be clear - trading Odom would have nothing to do with Lamar himself wanting to leave. In fact, he told HOOPSWORLD over the weekend that he would stay in LA for less money just to continue as a Laker. That feature is coming soon, so watch for it.

No, this is about what Phil Jackson sees his team needing to gear up for what many believe will be another showdown with the Boston Celtics . . .and Paul Pierce. Gerald Wallace is a piece who would not only help contain Pierce, but also keep him busy on the defensive end.

The other issue facing the team right now, as you can probably guess, is that a couple of the guys who signed huge contracts over the summer are trying to do too much. Andrew Bynum and Sasha Vujacic feel like they need to score a lot of points to justify their deals, but the team doesn't necessarily need that from them. Points are good, but defense and, in the case of Vujacic, facilitating the offense more is what's called for.

There is also the Farmar issue, which is looking like a long-term problem for LA. While Jackson talks about this kind of injury often being a 2-3 games out kind of thing, Farmar is telling people he won't rush back. The meniscus is an injury that can damage a player long-term if they come back too soon. Farmar told reporters recently that he understands this is a business, and he doesn't want to risk his long term employment picture by coming back too quickly this season.

It sounds like the Lakers may be in the market for a point guard, as well.

I don't really consider Hoopsworld to be a very accurate source, but I've gotten to the point where I'd love to see Lamar go out in exchange for Gerald Wallace or Mike Miller, so I hope there's something to this.

He's a much better fit than Odom. At least he tries on defense and never gives up on a play. Great shooter as well.

It would be virtually impossible to get him without a third team though.

Jordan being out for a while, I'd imagine, will spur the FO to be more aggressive about making the type of trade that many have been calling for (better fit SF, better defensive PG). Not to say Mitch is an idiot for not being eager to do this before, just saying despite a new/different reason, we the fans may get what we (some of us) have been wanting!

Let's see... if only there was a tough defensive minded SF that can hit a 3, and quick PG that can bring this team some decent D on the same team... I'd take Nocioni and Hinrich if Hinrich wasn't injured and the Bulls would do it. Too bad Hinrich isn't projected to return for another month. There goes the reason Mitch might be on board.

You have got to be kidding me. Gasol is the problem?!?!?!? The guy has been our most consistent player all year! Diaw is lazy as hell and PIerce would destroy him. Plus, Boris isn't really a SF anyway.

Your post makes zero sense.

I think our Record says we are 23-5 and on top of the west by 5 games. Gasol's worth isn't determined by what we got him for. That is like saying Lebron is worth what the Cavs paid for him in his rookie deal.

Trade Gasol, Id like to trade you to another forum

Trade Pau??!?!?! You're not serious are you? I think Pau has a great chance at being an MVP candidate, although I don't think he'd be chosen, he certainly has been consistent since the season has started and is doing a stellar job at getting his team involved.

hahahhaha, you must not no much about basketball. Try actually watching the game instead of looking at boxscores and looking at the guy with the ball, look at the guys working around it. Then you will see what you are saying is complete bull.

Has to be a troll.

One thing that is freaking me out about the Laker sites is that they all want so bad to be fair that they are more than willing to chase away the hard core Laker fans in order to allow the "other team" fans an equal voice.

I really hate that, I think it sucks.

With us heading into an era of Celtics vs Lakers, the stuff we have seen over the last few years is going to seem like nothing. Sorry but competing with fans of the Spurs is nowhere near as bad as dealing with fans of the Celtics.

It's going to lead to a LOT MORE trolling. I honestly don't think we should tolerate it much.

yeah, but we know nobody that knows the sport would even talk of a Pau trade unless you were getting, well, just a few people come to mind. But again; Lakers will not be fielding calls for one of our 2 real stars...

not happening....

I dunno.. I'm not all that opposed to dealing Gasol.. There's a few scenarios I think we could make our team stronger by dealing Gasol..

Bdiddy is sending mixed signals about wanting out.. Add in the fact that 1 of Camby/Randolph/Kaman is going to be sent out..

What about Gasol + Luke for Bdiddy & Kaman.. They would have to find a third team to take Gasol & send them a solid PG since they're already solid up front.. I'm sure there's plenty of teams that would take a shot at Pau tho.

Portland - LMA + Outlaw + Blake for Gasol + Powell + a 2nd..

With Boozer all but saying he's opting out & going to MIA.. Boozer + Brevin Knight + Korver for Gasol + Luke would probably appeal to Utah.. Don't think Boozer would be going anywhere once he comes here & wins a ring..

The Hinrich injury really messed up our best option imo.. I wouldn't involve Gasol because we don't really get the star power back, but even with the injury I still wouldn't be opposed to Hinrich + Gooden + Nocioni for LO + Luke + Vlade.. That's pretty lopsided in our favor so if they wanted Luke replaced with Sasha I'd still do it.. Considering Hinrich can guard SG's..

Hinrich is the perfect triangle PG.. As starters it's close but LO>Gooden.. But I think Gooden would probably give us more than LO has been giving us off the bench because he wouldn't let it effect him as much mentally.. & then Nocioni.. He's basically Vlade's shooting + solid D..
