I'm starting to want to look into trading Pau and have a bit of time on my hands, so here we go...

#1. Pau Gasol to Golden State for David Lee and Jarrett Jack.
Why we do it? Lee is a better fit into the offense as a pick-and-pop guy and Jack could be the solid back-up PG we've been missing. We could throw in a few of the youngsters to sweeten the deal (Sacre, Morris or Ebanks)
Why they do it? The GS front office (Jerry West) loves Pau and they could use him both as a C, when oft-injured Bogut is out, as well as a 4 instead of Lee. He would fit nicely into the GS system; shooters surrounding a BIG and Tough front court.

#2. Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace to NY for Amare Stoudemire, Ronnie Brewer and Novak.
Why we do it? We get a few pieces that fit better into D'Antoni's system, BUT we also take on some salary while not really getting much younger. It is a risky move, but it could work.
Why they do it? Amaré is the big elephant in the room in NY. He and Melo doesn't play well together and he is expensive. NY does not lose much on the defensive end with Artest and gain options in their frontcourt.

#3. Pau Gasol to Milwaukee for Monta Ellis, Ersan Ilyasova and Drew Gooden.
Why we do it? Ilyasova almost led the league in 3pt% last season (.455), but have been quite bad so far. Gooden have not been used at all and Ellis is a pain in the ass. But, all three could be used and rejuvinated in D'Antoni's system.
Why they do it? They save money. They get a solid big, who is also a good locker-room guy, which they really could use with their two promising bigs (Sanders and Henson).

#4. Pau Gasol to Milwaukee for Ersan Ilyasova, Drew Gooden and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.
Why we do it? We get a stretch-4 (Illyasova), a back-up big who can score (Gooden) and an elite defender (Mbah a Moute). All should thrive in D'Antonis system.
Why they do it? They get rid of guys who isn't producing (Illyasova), isn't playing (Gooden) or is injured (Mbah a Moute). The get a solid veteran big, which they need.

#5. Pau Gasol, Morris and Ebanks or Clark to Atlanta for Josh Smith, Morrow and Harris.
Why we do it? We get a defensive 4 a solid back-up 1 and one of the best shooters in recent nba history.
Why they do it? They may very well lose all three after the season anyway and Pau should be a lot more effective in Atlanta's system alongside Horford. Also, Josh Smith have really struggled this season (more than Pau).

What do you guys think?

Maybe. But in my opinion it makes no sense to give away Pau for nothing. Some of these trades makes a lot of sense for the other side as well in terms of fit, salary etc.

people need to get over this "equal value" myth. Equal value for Pau is getting some average player in return...and even then it would be a steal on our part.

The problem with moving him is his bull[expletive] contract and everyone and their mama knows that Pau Gasol is not worth that kind of money.

ANYTHING we get for him is a steal

Pau Gasol is GONE

Didn't feel like making a new topic when a lot of people have lately, but why has no one mentioned Pau Gasol for Ryan Anderson from New Orleans. He's averaged nearly 17pts, 8reb and 3.4 3PMpg. He's also played with Dwight in Orlando. He'd be our stretch 4, and is a good rebounder for someone that has the reputation of floating around the 3pt line.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
