Lakers trade: Andrew Bymum, Pau Gasol, Steve Blake
Lakers receive: Dwight Howard, Monta Ellis

Bucks trade: Monta Ellis
Bucks receive: Zach Randolph

Magic trade: Dwight Howard
Magic receive: Andrew Bynum, Steve Blake

Grizzlies trade: Zach Randolph
Grizzlied receive: Pau Gasol

I think it works out for all teams.

Lakers get a superstar bigman and a terrific scorer in Ellis
Bucks get Randolph who will be healthy next season and arguably a top 5 PF when healthy
Magic get young bigman star and Blake
Grizzlies will have a great bigman combo with the Gasol brothers

Monta can play point (said this a hundred times before)

great idea but probably not likely

Pau Gasol is GONE

You may have said it - but he sure doesn't look like a point guard.

He's a primary SG, but I think he could also be great as a pointguard. Averaging 6 assists a game is decent.

Before Stephen Curry came Ellis played the Point. but no this wouldn't happen at all.

Not sure what you're looking at then.

I've seen him play the point. He's miles ahead of anything we've had at the position for over a decade

Pau Gasol is GONE

That's true, but what i'm seing is an undersized 2 who shoots too often. He would have to change his game completely and become a PG.

This is possible but I think we should focus on getting derron with gasol becasue I think we can get derron on a deal. Not that many team who want him have much to trade for him. Only really a fight between us and the mavs and I think we can win that. So Im ok with the howard deal but really dont think thats the biggest issue with the lakers but the pg deal I think would only be good if DW trade is made impossible.

No he doesn't, if he could play at the level he is at right now I don't see why we would adjust his game. LA desperately needs a player who can score and create their own shots than Kobe who most of the time facilitates the offense. And those 6 assists a game is a good number for him not to mention the crappy players he dished out to as a Buck and Warrior. Imagine what he can do with our bigs(if they stay) and Kobe. We would have so many scoring options on the offensive and and totally destroy the opponent's defense.

But I could say the same with D. Will...
