^Would you take either of those deals if you were the GM of one of those teams?

My jaw would drop if the Celtics traded Bradley. He's an incredible perimeter defender, and will be a Tony Allen (if he's not there already) in a couple years.

^Celtics have many of the same problems we do. Core players are mostly old or injured (or both), big contracts, big egos. Bradley is one of those types of guys you build around rather than trade. Not a franchise player but real solid. At least the C's have some picks over the next few years, so they are in a bit better shape I guess.

So Memphis is now out of the question. The rumor about the Grizz being interested in pairing the two brothers up...no point now, since they've acquired Ed Davis.

Toronto is also going to be off our list as well, because Calderon is history, and they aren't trading Lowry (just brought in his good friend Rudy Gay, and pairing players that have great relationships together is what Colangelo does...see Calderon/Garbajosa, Bosh/Ford, and Bargnani/Belinelli). And thank the basketball gods for that, because I'd literally cry if we brought that defensive matador here (Bargs).

There really isn't much out there.

I am VERY confident that Josh Smith will be traded.

Pierce and Garnett aren't untouchable, and I wouldn't be shocked if LA and Boston actually call each other up, just to see where they stand.

Houston is coming off a bad month, Harden is slowing down, and they did show interest in Gasol last year...but they don't have much in salary to make something happen. They CAN absorb around $10 million, I believe, but they'd have to trade Harden, Lin, OR Asik (their three biggest contracts, at around $5-6 million right now) with another player, and there's no way they do that for Gasol.

I read that the Pacers would consider trading Granger for an expiring. He would do a better job at the three than Ron, that's for sure.

You always have Minnesota interested...pretty sure they would be as long as they have Rubio. It won't be for Love, though, even if he was healthy and on the block.

Philly won't take a big man from us ever again.

Sacramento could be intrigued, and I would love for them to give up a disgruntled Evans and Thomas Robinson (hope they already gave up on him), but that would probably draw a few laughs. Cousins won't be in LA, since we have Dwight (who is three times the player...Cousins is a waste of talent).

Finally, Utah is still hauling around four bigs, three that want more playing time...Millsap, Favors and Kanter (Jefferson the other big). There's no doubt I'd be interested in Millsap or Favors...but I see no reason for them to bring in Gasol, since he's also a big man who is already whining about his playing time.

I don't know. Three-fourths of that is borderline wishful thinking.

maybe the lakers can use Minnesota as a 3rd team to grab millsap. I think Utah may be willing to part with him for Williams and barea and a pick. we can take millsap

I know, Bradley is pretty much untouchable, but i think they would be interested in trading both Lee and Green, who have been underperforming. Both would be very nice fits in a D'Antoni system and both can defend extremely well.

If they can defend, why would DAntoni need them? :bleh:

Josh Smith of course.

I wouldn't mind Ryan Anderson

Still wouldn't mind getting Tony Wroten either

The Lakers Holding The Line: With the Lakers finally putting together a winning streak, panic in Laker-land has started to die down. League sources peg the Lakers as doing due diligence on trades, but that they are not being overly aggressive about anything including moving Pau Gasol.


Gasol isn’t happy about his new role coming off the bench, but he has said publicly and privately that he’d rather be a Laker than be traded and it seems the Lakers agree with him.


Sources close to the process say the Lakers continue to talk about Gasol deals with teams, but that they basically understand that moving him would net them pennies on the dollar for Gasol’s talent. It is clear Pau Gasol doesn’t have much of a future with Mike D’Antoni; however the Lakers don’t have enough assets to just give away Gasol to move him.


The general thinking is as long as things are progressing and everyone can live with each other, the Lakers look like they are going to hold the line on major change.


The more likely scenario is that Gasol will be moved in the off-season after the Lakers have re-signed Dwight Howard and when their roster would allow them to pull off three-for-one kinds of deals without eating contract dollars and could afford them the chance to shed some luxury taxable salary.


If the season falls apart any worse than it has or the Lakers slide out of the playoff picture before the trade deadline, things could be fast tracked, but it looks like the Lakers plan to hold firm at the deadline, or at least that’s how it looks 22 days out.

This is pretty much what I expected.

Makes the most sense. We all want Josh Smith but I don't think that's available. Could change, but Pau will most likely find a new home this summer.
