According to sources, the Los Angeles Lakers will trade Matt Barnes, Steve Blake and first round pick to Utah Jazz for their power forward Paul Millsap.


http://www.basknet.info/2011/12/11/lakers-traded-for-paul-millsap/


Not sure how legit the source is but this rumor has been popping up a bit on Twitter and its starting to be talked about in the D12 thread.

Some thoughts:

1) Dave Miller of ESPN 710 am, had said the Lakers had a trade lined up for a PF during the CP3 drama

2) The Lakers do have Paul's little brother Elijah Millsap in training camp right now

3) If true, a package of Bynum/Millsap/Draft picks trumps any other teams offer for Dwight Howard and Lakers would still be able to keep Gasol

He's undersized, but he's a very good player. Basically replaces Lamar obviously not nearly as talented, but equally as productive.

I find Paul Millsap, Carl Landry, & Luis Scola all very similar. I'd take any of them though.

Millsap is legit, i always pick him up in fantasy and he gets numbers. I know we probably want to package him with Bynum for Dwight, but I wouldn't mind him sticking around either. It's just a good deal overall especially us getting rid of Blake if true.

Are you kidding me? We can get rid of STEVE BLAKE? I don't want to get my hopes up...Although losing Barnes would be tough with Metta garbage and Puke on this team.

I don't buy that rumor. The Jazz would trade their starting power forward for a backup small forward, a backup point guard coming off a horrible year, and a late 1st round pick?

I'd move Blake, but I wouldn't move Barnes, our SF position is small enough as it is, and one PF isn't gonna change that.

I'm starting to realize Luke Walton is almost as untrade-able as Kobe.

Yes please get Millsap. He's pretty much Odom without 3pt range and ball handling. But I wanna keep Barnes. Love the way he plays.

^ Actually he can shoot the 3 ball, just not really that consistently nor often, but it's not completely non-existent.
