Pau Gasol: TURNING POINT AND LEAK

The most negative situation since Pau Gasol's NBA player has reached a point of no return in the Lakers, at least while Mike D'Antoni is the coach, and that seems guaranteed until end of season. Gasol's professional relationship coach and has been a pulse from the first matches of D'Antoni on the bench, in parentheses liar dinner at Restaurant Petros in Manhattan Beach last December 19.

If we go by the latest developments Mike D'Antoni has lost the plot, if it came to South California with them in hand. A coach who puts a player, whoever he is, to substitute in a match holder and substitute the following in the third, within five days without medical advice through no defense, justification, authority or conviction . A D'Antoni signed him to run a team with four untouchables totaling $ 75 million salary this season. First tried to play a player of 2.13 m. 32 years tall and seven meters from the hoop. Look situations Gasol shot in the final season of Phil Jackson and compare:

http://www.basketbal.../shooting/2011/

The decision to sit home to one of the four untouchables, to give discreet plan to play 24 minutes per game, is to waste the excess capital invested. D'Antoni has launched the cracking of the substitution of Gasol in Chicago because I knew after the defeat in Toronto to the situation and the results could get worse in the next twelve games. Nine of them are away from home and many rivals before class. D'Antoni has realized that it is not able to get more with what you have. He knows that his system is not flexible or adaptable to the two towers and laying Gasol wants to accelerate the handover process to see if a four or three and a half open (type Rudy Gay, Josh Smith ..) and at least one reinforcement perimeter can be attached to the playoffs carriage and thus ensured the start of next season on the bench.

Until a week ago Pau Gasol was committed, staying in encabezonado Lakers to overcome the situation. When he heard the Monday morning of his anger was multiplied substitution and approaches extent to which dragged on for days and his agent Arn Tellem, who has requested an interview with General Manager Mitch Kupchak. There is one month to the transfer deadline but time is running fast for the Lakers, their classification and because with every game, every decision and every press conference coach Pau Gasol can lose a potential economic value transfer and increase the difficulty for the same. And that is an incalculable injury to a franchise that lost the oremus in its calculations of the last two years.

It's not my translation, lol.

Arn Tellem wanting to speak with Mitch sounds about right, since he got benched. Won't be long now.

Of course Lakers don't want to take back long-term money. They want to have cap space in 2014.

I would trade Gasol pretty much anywhere East and maybe to some lower-tier teams in the West.

Brooklyn, Miami, Charlotte, Atlanta, Boston, etc. Don't worry about the off chance you face him in the Finals next year. If so, it's a nice story, because clearly, the trade helped us if it gets to that point.

Try to acquire a lottery pick, if possible (Charlotte/Cleveland/Phoenix?) and some pieces to fill in around Kobe/Gasol/Nash. This season is busted, so focus on what you are going to do next year and start doing it today.

I went to the Bobcats game yesterday and the main thing I noticed was how they don't have any real post-scoring presence.

Gasol expires after next year. The Bobcats are plenty young. It's worth a risk for Charlotte, IMO, to trade their lotto pick for Gasol, but they probably wouldn't consider it until the draft lottery.

If they get #1, and could grab Noel, it would be a decent consolation for not gettng Davis, especially since MKG is pretty solid himself.

Ideally we get a young player through lottery pick or player in a trade that convinces Dwight to stay

Watched the interview. He was right about one thing. Dwight has definitely changed the direction of the franchise.

You dont trade Pau Gasol for a [expletive]ing draft pick. You trade him for a [expletive]ing allstar.

It's been said that this is one of the worst drafts in a long time, and I doubt the Lakers get a top lottery pick. I doubt the Lakers get a difference maker.

Pau won't return a lot of value now or next season. The Lakers would only want to trade Pau for other expirings next season to preserve 2014 cap space.

The Lakers are stuck. It was a huge mistake for the Lakers not to do anything earlier this season when Pau still had value as a player.
