Cleveland gets Gasol and DJO.
Atlanta gets Varejao, Walton, and Booby Gibson.
Lakers get Josh Smith and Kyle Korver.

Thoughts? It works financially


Luke Walton to Atlanta....while we get Josh Smith.....


I think Mitch is a genius an evil genius if he did that

No on this trade, Varejão is having knee problems himself.


I hope this isn't the best we can get for Pau Gasol....


it is. vaerjoa is damn good bro. just not the best fit for this team,imo,,,,even tho his contributions could prove me wrong. if you like jordan hill,then verajoa would be your fav player on the lakers

Why would the Cavs take Pau anyways?

They are going for a Top 5 Pick, and are building a young team. The last thing they need is a player getting them over 10 wins like Pau.

They will get some young players and picks....not a vet.

I just don't see this happening.

yes it's wishful thinking, but lets look at the facts

1) Kevin Love and Minnesota (at least their GM) have a mutual hatred for one another

2) rick adelman has a hard-on for pau

that right there is more then what we knew about pau before he was sent over to LA (all we knew was that memphis hated him)

if someone can pull it off its mitch and this organization!!

I don't know, but they should trade Waiters! *Mby for Cousins. And then draft Shabazz, talk about a killer 1/2 combo.

i think this orginization is why that deal cant be done. love for pau is a steal, "NO MORE HANDOUTS TO THE LAKERS" im sure is the league motto

Luke Walton to Atlanta....while we get Josh Smith.....


I think Mitch is a genius an evil genius if he did that

No, its Varejao to Atlanta while we get Josh Smith. Varejao is a borderline all star player who would let them play Horford at PF where he is so much better. Luke is a 6.1 mil expiring after this season...that is very attractive teams and we already saw ATL trying to shed salary in the offseason.

I doubt the Lakers get anything other than role players for Pau, which I would still take. While I don't think he's finished like some people here think so, this team has bigger needs.

I don't see why somebody would trade somebody younger who's actually playing like an all-star for somebody who hasn't played like an all-star. Maybe Pau's value is higher due to the lack of players who can play C, but I still don't see it.

If the Lakers don't do anything to really help themselves out defensively, it would be a huge mistake.

Sadly, you might be right. They didn't make the right change at coach, and they might make the wrong changes to the roster too.

I still wish I knew what the deal was for Pau last year that Roland Lazenby thought was done. Just to satisfy my curiosity.
