He has.

He's fallen off a cliff overlooking the ocean and has sunk into the mariana trench

Pau Gasol is GONE

Love the trade, but for Pau to be moved, a third team would have to get involved. Realistically, I can hardly think of 2-3 teams that would take on Pau.


Raptors would GLADLY take him

i think Pau can get back to his championship Laker form , playing center. so i disagree based on potential.. but u r right, at the moment

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Pau would play center with the second unit.

There was nothing championship Laker form that I've seen from him.

No way Utah would take Pau Gasol back.

They want to ship out one of Mislap or Jefferson, but they want to do so without bring back a PF/C


Pau needs to go to a team that NEEDS a Center.

What potential? Pau is 32 years old, he's only going to get worse...can't imagine how he could be any worse than he already is but if anyone can become completely useless, it's him.

Pau Gasol is GONE

Pau may have lost his mid-range and perhaps some of his passion, but he still has his post game and passing.
Pau would be an upgrade over either one of them
Not to mention, Pau would is an expiring contract next season ; Jazz will let go or trade one of them anyway (they'll ask for 4 year contracts),Right now, they are in the middle of the pack, they might as well go for an upgrade in Pau, who could be a great mentor to their young Bigs.

Uyah wouldn't do the trade if Mo is included though


Pau has fallen off a cliff. I've defended him in the past, but the guy just isn't anywhere near what he once was. Take a look at the numbers.

2009-2010 - 18.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 53.6 FG%.

2010-2011 - 18.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 52.9 FG%.

2011-2012 - 17.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 50.1 FG%.

2012-2013 - 13.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 42.8 FG%.

Down in pretty much every category and what really is glaring is the huge, huge drop in field goal percentage.

Utah would never do this trade. Mitch is good but he's not that good.

Pau isn't going anywhere. His contract is salary AIDS for nba teams and why would other organizations want to help us out after we got Dwight. I am with windu on the "get Paula out of here" ship but I don't think its hoing to happen.

There's honestly no way Utah would do that. Pau is worse than Millsap atm and Mo Williams for Earl Clark and one of our other scrubs? lol

Hard to say when he's playing in a different system that turns him into a 4th option and a jumpshooter

His lack of effort is a different story though

over 21+ mill pau woul be getting if he was traded and another 19+ mill next year. No chance. People are greatly over rating pau's trade value. We should have traded him in the off season for a couple decent player but thats hind sight. His trade value is [expletive].

Pretty sure Raptors would want him.
Bulls too, but they would give Lakers Boozer in return, so no

if we could swap pau for bargnani and some pieces, i would definitely do that. a legit 7 foot stretch 4 would be perfect.

his height doesn't matter because he can't rebound.
But he and Calderon would do good in D'Antoni's offense
