Look at the remaining top 4 teams. San Antonio moved Duncan to C. Boston moved Garnett to C.

I know but I’m just saying if Pau found other avenues to contribute even if his offense is going south (he used to do that from 08-10) then we’d still be playing.

In his 1st year as the #2 option he nearly put up 20 & 10. He's only gonna get better. He's a little immature so what? He's 24 years old he'll mature as he ages no doubt in my mind. There's absolutely no reason to trade him and if we did it wouldn't be garbage deals like the ones above.

As much as I love his potential, I don't know if I want to continue with Bynum.. Between the injuries & attitude I think we'll be better off trading him. The problem is, the only 1 for 1 swap that made sense is with a guy coming off back surgery.. I don't want to gamble on either one of these guys.
You can get alot of star players for Bynum in my opinion.. I know they say you don't trade big for small, but when you do, you can usually get alot in return. Deron is the 2nd most likely target for in a 1 for 1 swap with not much else included from either team.
I think our best bet is getting a package of a young star & a few good role players. I would also consider sending out both bigs if the right deal comes along. I think alot of teams with good PG's would consider it
I'll start with the most unrealistic, Bynum + filler for Love + Pek
Bynum + Pau + filler for Hortford + Smith + Teague
Bynum for Lawson + Chandler + McGee
Bynum for Hibbert + George + Hill.. or Bynum + Gasol for Hibbert + West + George + Collison
Bynum + Pau + Blake for Noah + Gibson + Deng + Watson
Bynum + Pau for Marc + Zbo + Rudy
I only focused on deals where we get back a replacement Center.. If we can somehow get a C for Gasol (maybe Pek thrown in Beasleys place in MIN deal), We could expand it to a good enough amount of offers that I think we can find one that works.
What is your take on this? Do we need one of the 2 dominant Centers, or would we be better off getting multiple pieces for Bynum? Also, what kind of deals would you take for him?
