Beasley included in trade

Why we do it: We get a superstar in Howard who will play well alongside Kobe and have a young Pekovic replacing Pau's spot. Johnson and Beasley will be great coming off the bench

Why Wolves do it: They finally get what they're looking for, Pau Gasol. Him and Rubio will compliment eachother very well. Pau and Love will make a great frontcourt duo.

Why Magic do it: They get two young rising start Bynum and D. Will. These guys will be keys in their rebuilding progress.

Not bad. Would rather have Williams than Pekovic but then Magic won't do that trade.
A pick here and there for us could also be desired.

In any case, its not a trade you could dismiss. The Beasley s and t will be crucial...

Exactly your over rating pau's value. He isn't worth nearly as much anymore. I wish this trade would go through. With howard and pekovic we would be dominate down low. But ya we would have to throw in like 2 1st round picks and the magic would have to throw in 1 and maybe a 2nd

That wouldn't be a bad trade if for every exhausted effort...we couldn't get Deron Williams...In the center default league I know its a + to have a real solid center...I wouldn't call Bynum great and this was finally his breakout year...I would first test the waters for Bynum for Lopez/Williams..Then Bynum for Howard and lure Deron Williams that way, if possible...We would basically have to lose Gasol for a draft pick but I would do it...The last team's era is over and its time to think pass Kobe...If they got Howard and Dwill or Lopez/dwill..I would still use my trade exc and build around those four and if they could resign hill and sessions..But to me a top 5, really top 3 pg is more valuable than a center that doesn't always bring it by choice and at 30 will be a 13 yr vet with bad knees...Would u make him the face of your franchise..idk about that one

I think the trade looks good for every part. and a very good deal for Orlando.

One thing though, why would we want TWO centers?
