Golden State gets Pau Gasol and Dallas' first round pick + fillers if needed
Why: Jerry West LOVES Pau, and with a few young prospects in Curry, Thompson, Udoh and picks, they would be good going forward. Also, they would have about 10-15 million in cap space this offseason to sign an all-star caliber SF (Gerald Wallace or Wilson Chandler). Also, if they do this trade now, take out Curry for the season (anckle) and start to tank they could have a high draft pick as well.
Lakers get Monta Ellis and David Lee.
Why: We replace a big with another younger big, who is an excellent pick and roll player and rebounder. We also get a dynamic guard, who can score and take pressure off Kobe. Ellis have improved these past three seasons, and potentially could be a good distributer.
