Hawks get: Pau Gasol.
Lakers get: Josh Smith and Zaza Pachulia.

If we were to acquire Smith, D12 would have no problem joining LA longterm imo.
Still I think Deron Williams is much more important at this moment, Ramon Sessioons just doesn't seem to be the answer.
Can he be a great off the bench guy? HELL YEAH!

EDIT: I don't know why you guys wouldn't want him, what do you guys want? I mean, we tried to make Pau a jump shooter, well Smith is already a jump shooter, that can spread the floor. We said Pau wasn't physical, Smith gets a A in my book for being a physical player. We said that Pau can't play defense, here is a player that was a defensive player of the year candidate, with over 1,305 block shots, 26 more blocks and he'll be tied with Pau, he only been in the league for 8 years. We said that Pau was old, Smith is 26. We said Pau isn't athletic, Smith slam dunk champ and athletic freak. He is a free agent too. So what do you guys want? I'm starting to agree that some of you guys are greedy (not speaking to guys that are in here but to the people that don't want him and over looks him) I mean, here you guys plead about wanting a pf that can shoot, defend, young, athletic and here he is right before our eyes and you're like no. His skills fits what we are trying to do at the PF, why do u don't want him?

But, I think our primary need is at the PG spot. With an aging (but Elite) Kobe and an emerging force in Bynum we need a PG who can get the ball the right people at the right time. Someone who can slow down the game, and isn't afraid to pass the ball to Bynum, when Kobe is screaming for the ball.

Magic also mentioned it as a possibility right after the season was over.

Maybe not on par with the Heat and the Thunder, but definitely a team that can do some damage in the playoffs and set up the Lakers for the long-term.
