We all know what Kobe wants. He wants 2 more championships to surpass his idol MJ, and enter the conversation as the greatest to ever play. While Laker fans might already think this, some doubters don't think he in the conversation yet
First trade we make
Earl Clark, Jordan Hill, Steve Blake, Cash
Lakers land a youthful stretch four. Isn't the best defender but he can really shoot. Is not a 1 option but he could fit well if all he was ask was to shoot and space the floor for Dwight. Our coach loves italians, and Bargnani can run in the system. Toronto lands a nice piece in Jordan Hill for their front court, and sheds Bargnani contract which will allow them to potentially add an impact FA this summer. Ed Davis will become the starting 4 with Jonas as the center moving forward. The star on the team is Lowry, and Blake would make a decent back up for the Raptors who won't complain about being in Canada. Calderon should be leaving in the offseason. Earl Clark is decent prospect who would be another young piece on a young team.
Darius Morris and Pau Gasol
Greg Smith, Royce White, Chandler Parsons, Jeremy Lin
Since the Harden trade Lin has not had a role on the Rockets. Some say he is an odd fit in Houston. One thing is for certain, Lin thrived in our coaches system. Chandler Parsons is a solid all around player at the 3 who would be the hardest player to pry away. However I think the Rockets gamble on adding one the best post scorers in the NBA. Gasol is more of a center these days who needs to play next to the basket. Royce White has potential but is a headcase a gamble a team like us to afford to take. Greg Smith would be another prospect who could emerge as a legit backup to Dwight. Houston has alot of solid players but needs more impactful players. Parsons and Lin would thrive in our system and give this team some much needed quickness
Houston after the trade
Gasol Omar Cole Aldrich
Dougles Morris or Machedo
Gasol and Harden would make a good one two punch
our team after the trades
Dwight Smith Sacre
Barg Jamison Royce
MWP Parsons Ebanks
Kobe Meeks DJO
Nash Lin Duhon
Dleague/IR: Sacre, DJO, Royce
Our team would have a couple stretch 4s next to Dwight and Nash to find, we also add two quick young players to the playoff rotation.
Playoff rotation! Bring Casspi or Ariza back home for a Title Run Mitch!!!
