Default RUMOR: Lakers Shopping Gasol For Eastern Conf.Star PG?

Who makes the most sense? Rondo??? Stuckey??? Augustin? Nelson?

Quote:
Quote:
• One Eastern Conference executive told FOX Sports Ohio he’s heard from the Lakers recently, and word around the league is they may try to make a "substantial" trade before the regular season. Apparently, forward Pau Gasol remains far from untouchable.

• Many NBA talent-evaluators feel as if Steve Nash is no longer capable of playing at a high level for more than 15-20 minutes game. The Lakers, it is believed, are on the lookout for a younger point guard who's a more potent scorer. But as everyone who deals in the trade market will tell you, that won't be so easy to obtain.

Pau Gasol will net you an old star or a promising youngster. Not a young star. This rumor will stay a rumor.

not a surprise because there was a rumor floating last year as well, only Howard was mentioned instead of Gasol

A rebuilding team would love an almost $20 million expiring contract though, wouldn't they? ;)

Default Re: RUMOR: Lakers Shopping Gasol For Eastern Conf.Star PG?

i cant see it happening this early in the season. by all star break? maybe.

but right now, with kobe nearly back from injury, the lakers wouldnt completely gut their team without seeing what this team can do for the first few months, regardless of how shitty non lakers fans think theyll be.

Take Gasol off of that team and they will be in the lottery. It will expose Kobe yet again.

Pre-Gasol with prime Kobe= first round loss
Post-Gasol with old Kobe= lottery

Default Re: RUMOR: Lakers Shopping Gasol For Eastern Conf.Star PG?

Some two-way trades I tried in NBA Trade Machine that were successful...

Lakers get: Rajon Rondo, Gerald Wallace
Celtics get: Pau Gasol, Jodie Meeks


Analysis: Boston goes into full rebuild mode and Gasol's $19 contract will come off the books after this year making them prime to start rebuilding. Rondo goes to a contender and with Nash on his way out soon the Lakers can possibly make one last push with Kobe for the Finals before he retires. The cost is that the price they pay is taking on Wallace's contract for $10+ million for the next 3 years.

=====

Lakers get: Kemba Walker, Ben Gordon
Bobcats get: Pau Gasol


Not likely. Walker is a ball-dominate. Won't mesh with Kobe. But Jordan might be dumb enough to do the trade. Maybe he'll even throw MKG in there too just because he doesn't know what the f*ck he's doing.

=====

Lakers get: Rodney Stucky, Charlie Villanueva
Bobcats get: Pau Gasol


I really think Stucky needs a change of scenery. I think he's still a solid PG/SG in the league, but is always injuries and maybe a new team with a better outlook might do him some good.

=====

Lakers get: Jameer Nelson, Hedo Turkoglu
Magic get: Pau Gasol


This trade out of all them makes the most sense. The Magic are in full rebuild mode right now. They get Gasol for one year, probably make him sit most of the year and his $19 million expires after this season. They get rid of Turkoglu, then they depart ways with Nelson who has 2 years left on his contract since Oladipo will probably be the Magic's future PG at least short-term right now unless he doesn't work out (which so far he's been pretty decent as a scoring PG). Nelson isn't "young" but he's still a good PG and can help with one last push for the playoffs before Kobe retires.

The trades I posted are the onyl ones that are feesible to me. I would think Irving, Rose and some other PGs are untouchable right now. Those guys I mentioned aren't IMO.
