Here's my trade idea...I'm hesitant to trade Pau, but this might help us improve our scoring, PG situation, shooting, and not hurt our defense too much.
Lakers Send out:
Pau Gasol, Matt Barnes, Devin Ebanks, Darius Morris, Trade Exception + picks
Steve Nash, Louis Scola, Chase Budinger, Jordan Hill, Trevor Ariza
PHX Sends out:
Kevin Martin, Devin Ebanks, Darius Morris + Picks
Kevin Martin, Louis Scola, Chase Budinger, Jordan Hill
Pau Gasol, Matt Barnes
Then Lakers absorb Ariza with the trade exception, maybe send a second round pick to the Hornets to sweeten the deal.
New Laker Rotation:
Lakers Gain: A really good point guard, a shooter, an athlete on the wing, a solid stretch 4, and a backup center.
Lakers Lose: An All-star PF, Bynum insurance, young projects, and Matt Barnes.
I am still unsure if I make this trade, because you never want to give up the best player in the trade. But bringing in Nash, a shooter, Scola as a poor man's Pau, and getting Ariza back to help us defend the perimeter is tempting.
