Also, though I love Pau and hope he retires a Laker, I'd be pissed if Mitch offered Earl Clark in ANY trade. The guy is young, athletic, knows his role, energetic, and plays with a confidence that many players lack. He can be a bright spot in the Lakers' future, and if his few 20 pt games this season proves anything, I think once Kobe, Nash & Pau are gone, Clark will be a legit 2nd scoring option behind D12.

Even if the Hawks wanted to do that deal, the new CBA won't allow the Lakers to acquire a player by sign-and-trade.
