When he's asked why Kobe doesn't tweet, @thugraider37 said he offers this reply: "Does God tweet?"

ugh it took me some time to find this thread here.

running some trade machine: http://espn.go.com/n...tradeId=b6dxmre

Lakers get : Chandler Parsons, Jose Calderon, Linas Kleiza, Daequan Cook
Rockets get : Andrea Bargnani
Raptors get : Pau Gasol, Donatas Motiejunas

Our roster becomes:

C Dwight Howard / Jordan Hill
PF Chandler Parsons / Antawn Jamison
SF Ron Artest / Linas Kleiza
SG Kobe Bryant / Jodie Meeks
PG Steve Nash / Jose Calderon

It projects us to win 8 more games, lol, but although this is a bit undersized roster it can work well with D'Antoni. A lot of shooters. We could perhaps reinforce the PF/C position with trading Steve Blake.

If that was indeed Minnesota's offer, we would need to find a 3rd team. Also Minnesota needs to give up more to make the trade work. Here is what I came up with for a 3way trade with Atlanta. Salaries match, check the link above.

LAL gets:
F Josh Smith
G JJ Barea
G Anthony Morrow

ATL gets:
C Nik Pekovic
F Derrick Williams
F Earl Clark
G Luke Ridnour

MIN gets:
F/C Pau Gasol
F Mike Scott
G Darius Morris
G Chris Duhon

Why does every team do this?
LAL: Get's some youth and athleticism, and strengthens the bench. Josh Smith, Jamison, and MWP would rotate between the 3 & 4 with the starters as well as playing some bench minutes. A combo of Barea, Meeks, and Morrow off the bench at G would bring us a ton of athleticism to play some run and gun for D'Antoni. Think of a lineup of Barea, Meeks, Morrow, Smith, and Howard. That's really athletic and fast, would be fun to watch.

ATL: They know that Josh Smith is leaving after this year, and they seem to be headed for a youth movement. Pekovic is only 26 and is exactly the big bodied Center they would like to have so that they can move Horford to PF where he excels. Williams is a young guy who is oozing with potential and doesn't have a high salary. He fills in for the role that Marvin Williams played and never succeeded at. A lineup of Teague/Harris/Williams/Horford/Pekovic isn't terrible and is very young. Taking on Ridnour and Clark is the cost of this trade,
but Clark is a small expiring, and Ridnour has been playing well and becomes an expiring contract next year.

MIN: The Wolves finally get Gasol who they have been interested in for a few years now. They have to trade away their top 2 PGs at this time, but they get back Duhon and Morris to help out now, and they eventually get back Rubio from injury. Love and Gasol fit great together. They can both pass and rebound well, and Gasol moves back into the low post where he excels where Love can space the floor with his great shooting. Once Rubio gets back you have a trio of players who all can score, pass, and have a high basketball IQ. Throw in AK47 who is playing very well and you have a nice starting lineup. Maybe somewhere in this trade, MIN ends up with another SG from ATL instead of Duhon who knows.

Lakers new lineup:
Nash/Barea/Blake
Kobe/Meeks/Morrow
MWP/Morrow/Smith
Jamison/Smith
D12/Hill/Sacre


replace clark with ebanks. Seems for viable

For Toronto the deal would be centered around Andrea Bargnani, with Jose Calderon and Linas Kleiza as other potential chips. As for Minnesota, Derrick Williams (the #2 pick of the 2011 draft) and Nikola Pekovic are the names mentioned.
