Unless Pau suddently turns into Wilt Chamberlain, he needs to go this off-season. He is simply too unstable in the playoffs.

What we should do then is try to sign Kevin Garnett as a free agent. The Celts are rebuilding after this season, and if the go in total rebuild-get-lottery-pick-mode KG isnt going to stay. And he likes LA, and Kobe and would be a perfect fit at the PF spot shooting long 2s and providing toughness and defense along with Artest. If Pau could be turned into a solid starting caliber PG or top lottery-pick, we would be set going forward.

I like the plan, KG can still knock down those jumpers. But with all the "He's a celtic no way., he's cocky" I don't think any laker fan would want him to be here.

How do we sign KG with limited options again? He's not gonna demand anything less than what David West got.

I think Laker fans would manage if we start winning.

Of course, if KG wants 10 million / year, we wont get him. But, KG is a lot older than West and has a lot more mileage on his legs. He has been paid a lot in his career, and would perhaps want to make a run at another title to really certify himself in nba history. Also, he is only signing with a big-market contender, which basically means Bulls, Heat, Hawks, Knicks, Brooklyn, Spurs, Lakers, Clippers and OKC.

Obviously it is a bit of a long shot, but it isnt impossible that KG could sign with the Lakers using the mini-midlevel exception. But only if Boston goes in rebuilding mode - which they will.
