Lakers get: Wallace, Scola, Felton
Portland gets: Martin, Artest, Barnes, Dragic
Rockets get: Gasol, Matthews

Would it make sense for all involved though? I know it's not the sexy big name trade everyone else is talking about, but it gets us a PG upgrade, a SF upgrade, and a solid PF to replace Pau. We lose size and skill at PF, but gain speed and a couple more players that can create their own shot at SF and PG.
I know Houston would like to have Gasol, but I don't know if Portland gets enough in return. I don't know that Martin is something they'd want it all centered around, but they get depth at SF, albeit a downgrade, and they get scoring with Martin and some defense from Artest (whatever defense he still plays).
I don't know. What do you guys think? My gut tells me Portland wouldn't want to do it.
