Re: Gasol for Bogut + Klay Thompson
Bogut's been recovering from injuries where he hasn't been able to get NBA ready with his practice nor his conditioning.
If you watch his games, he starts gassing just after a few possessions. His legs are slowly returning, as is his offensive rhythm and confidence but he's still not there. I wouldn't call him washed up though.
And while I'm a fan of Gasol, this trade wouldn't make sense. Klay is on his way to being a Rip Hamilton caliber player IMO. Trading a player like that along with a defensive anchor for an all star who is basically on the downside of his career would be a dumb move.
