We continue to lose and zero moves are made.


Mitch, and Jimbo are already on the life rafts. We are about to be drowning in mediocrity

We're already worse than mediocre.

It's not going to get better the way things are right now either.

On the Lakers radar are Atlanta and the T'wolves who have picked up desperation in pieces willing to move to net Gasol in the wake of Love's injury.

Toronto has been in talks, but the Lakers have constantly rejected their offer.







So its either gonna be Smith and a shooter apparently. From what I just read.
Or Williams or Cunningham with Barea and some other pieces. Possible 3 team trade there$

But at least the Lakers have NO interest in Bargnani. Thank goodness!!

Not at all.

Once you see Bargs play defense, you'll wake up crying in the middle of the night begging for Gasol to come back

I think by this point we've settled that Windu would rather have a drunken wheelchair-bound grandma with no hands and feet playing than Pau.

Lakers won't take bargs and his contract. What's monta Ellis up to. Would take him over pau. Itll be interesting having people who show up every night other than Kobe for a change.

The Bobcats would be interested in having a conversation, sources say, but what could they offer beyond ball-stopping Ben Gordon and other fodder? A long shot? One rival exec mentioned the Grizzlies, who still need to trim future payroll despite the trade with Cleveland last week that delayed but did not solve their luxury-tax concerns. Rudy Gay or Zach Randolph for Gasol? It's far-fetched, but it would save Memphis tens of millions in luxury tax in 2014-15 and put the Gasol brothers on the same team. The basketball gods are rooting for that one, but as I've said, let's not get carried away. When it comes to trading Gasol, "It's not a big market," one of the executives said.


Trading Howard or Gasol looks good on HoopsHype, but there are serious issues involved with moving either of them. The Lakers gave up Andrew Bynum for Howard, and a potential lottery pick for Steve Nash. They've played 15 games together. Even in the short attention span theater of the NBA, that's not enough time to blow up the five-year plan to have Howard carry the franchise beyond the end of the Bryant era. Gasol? His stock couldn't be lower at the moment. He's 32, his knees hurt and he's having the worst season of his career. And oh, by the way, he makes $19.3 million next year. There are a few teams that might be willing to make that investment, and we'll get to those later. First let's look at whether the Lakers' problems could possibly be repaired from within. As one rival executive, when asked which teams would make sense for Gasol, told me, "I think he makes the most sense for the Lakers."


Minnesota has long been intrigued by the idea of Ricky Rubio and Gasol playing together, and Gasol might give the Timberwolves the boost they need to get back into the playoff hunt. But while Minnesota would be able to make the money match with some combination of Andrei Kirilenko, Nikola Pekovic and Luke Ridnour (who D'Antoni has always coveted), the Lakers lack the picks and other assets to make it worth the Wolves' while.

Only thing bargs got on pau is is contract is not as ba but he is worst than him as a player. Though dollar for dollar he is by far worst.

Pau's value may be at an all-time low and the new CBA does make things difficult. But it can also work to our advantage.
For instance, next season teams need to spend minimum 90% of the cap - which is around 50-55 million.
Cavs are at 29 million next season, which means that they easily could take on Pau's salary. Let's say we approach the trade deadline while being (more) way out of the playoffs, why not try to do a Walton-Varejao for Pau deal. Varejao would be a nice piece to begin next season with and Walton is an expiring. Note: If we were to trade for Kevin Love, who would ever get a rebound against a Hill-Love-Varejao frontline?
Another area where the CBA works is in the small markets: Memphis cannot afford to have 4 guys taking up 90 % of the cap. This means that they could be interested in dealing one of their "big four".
