Idea: Raptors / Lakers

We all know Calderon can't play D but he's one of the best ball distributing point guards in the league with an above average mid-range jump shot. Alan Anderson is a very useful bench player at the SF position, decent defender and decent 3pt shooter. Bargnani is included because they want him gone, they take our garbage in Pau & company, it's only fair we take theirs. If Pau and Duhon don't work out for them, they'll be expiring the next season. Both teams eventually cut down on salary within the next 2 years.

The problem is Bargnani! He is simply too expensive for what he brings to the table, which is ZERO defense and a lot of offense for a center, so i think for the Lakers to even consider this deal, Toronto would have to sweeten it a lot - either by throwing in Amir Johnson or Ed Davis or replacing Calderon with Kyle Lowry. In addition, they should take on at least 1 contract (Duhon, Ebanks, Blake, ??)
The one thing that does intrigue me a bit is the fact that we have Dwight Howard, who can cover up a lot of the defensive shortcomings of Bargnani, who actually does fit nicely into the D'Antoni system.
