I'm not sure that Toronto improves any with two centers and the worst wing rotation in the NBA.

No, they don't get any better, but that hasn't stopped BC in the past. Gasol's a big name, that's what matters.

Re: Is it time to start the Pau Gasol watch back up

Minny's not a player in this after Derrick Williams underwhelmed with Kevin Love out, at least not in a two-team trade. Pekovic makes zero sense next to Dwight and Minny isn't trading Love or Rubio, so you're basically looking at an offer of Williams, the Russians, and some picks at the end of the first round. It'd have to be a three-teamer with Pekovic going somewhere with a few other pieces, getting LA a good fit with Dwight and moving Pau to Minny so that Rubio has someone to be Spanish with.

Re: Is it time to start the Pau Gasol watch back up

Pau would fit in perfectly with Minny.

this is what Im thinking, Minnesota would totally love to have him but Bogg's right about Williams so could the wolves make a 3 team trade that would deliver the right pieces?

Raps don't need another big man, they need a SG that can shoot. Derozan its a good shooter but they gave him a big contract anyway.

Re: Is it time to start the Pau Gasol watch back up

If we acknowledge that we are only discussing scenerios for fun... if the Lakers were to trade Pau I would take Williams. He didn't set the world on fire but he's still young and I think he's got a future as a one-dimensonal combo scoring forward. Obviously they need to give more, so I would take Shved and a first to make up for all the ones we used on Dwight and Nash.

I like Shved's game. I think we would also have to take back Kirilenko to make the salaries work. What would your thoughts be on a Kirilenko, Williams, Shved and 1st for Pau/fillers deal?

I'm not sure about what the Lakers would be looking for in return.

But Minnesota is the local team so if Pau does get dealt I would hope it would be there so I could continue to follow him. And like I said I think he would be a great fit.

And as for the Josh Smith rumors, isn't Atlanta trying to clear up cap room to make a run at Dwight? Not sure they would help us or take on Pau's contract.

Re: Is it time to start the Pau Gasol watch back up

Lakers have been positioning themselves for cap space in 2014 I think. So that would also have to be taken into account when taking back longer contracts.

Would rather keep Pau but that would be ideal. Keep Williams and Shved on the bench this year (or use Shved as your fulltime backup PG), start Kirilenko at the 4. Hill would get minutes as the backup center and Jamison can continue to backup the 3 and the 4.

Re: Is it time to start the Pau Gasol watch back up

I admit I was initially sceptical about the comeback but AK47 has been really solid - Him and Dwight and Peace together would not be nice to other teams,not at all
