Ahhh!!

http://www.cbssports...-lakers-in-bind

Toronto is perhaps the most realistic landing spot for Gasol, given the uncertainty in the organization about whether Andrea Bargnani will ever develop into a star there. Bargnani wouldn't have to be a star in LA. He would simply have to stand at the 3-point line and make shots, a La Howard's former teammate in Orlando, Ryan Anderson. Toronto also has a point-guard problem to solve. And while Jose Calderon has frequently been mentioned as trade bait league sources say Raptors are far more amenable to trading Kyle Lowry, who has not made many friends in his new surroundings. The Raptors gave up a sure lottery pick for him (which Houston subsequently sent to Oklahoma City in the James Harden trade), so Gasol might be a way to salvage that transaction. Plus, with the new CBA taking effect and shortening teams' windows for winning, a team like Toronto might feel better about committing 1½ seasons to Gasol than using its cap room this summer to sign a lesser player for four years.


I think Toronto would love to unload Fields (Since they have Derozan, Alan Anderson Terrance Ross) and Amir Johnson (Fat contract but they have Valanciunas, Ed Davis and now Pau to shore up PF/C). Duhon's contract is only partially guaranteed next year

I would trade Nash for Lowry before Pau. Also, I am so opposed to Bargnani ever wearing purple and gold. He's an awful basketball player.

Ehh I wont hold my breath. I just can't imagine they would do that trade. I think the only trade with toronto they are willing to do it the calderon bargnani one they offered awhile ago.Maybe in the offseason though due to getting some cap space. I am at the point where I am not expecting any trades right now because theres no point. Might as well just wait till the offseason and look at all offers

Exactly how I feel. :laughing:

But I'd cool off the 1st rounder if we could get Lowry, Fields, and Ross. Only issue is that Fields has that poison pill contract so Lakers probably wouldn't take him.

It's how NBA teams are signing restricted free agents away from their original teams. The Knicks wanted to re-sign Fields but the Raptors gave him that backloaded contract which made the Knicks forget about fields due to the luxury tax implications.

Who cares if we are going to get a first rounder.

Management is going to use it to shed salary anyways like what they have done in the past :ranting:

But if we do get one, it would be intriguing to see what prospects are out there and if we should draft based on BPA or team needs.

BTW, Kenneth Faried was drafted with the 22nd pick. There is talent but we just need to find those gems. I do not like our scouting system. We have made so poor draft decisions in the past.

They won't part with Lowry, he's the solution to their point guard position. Calderon is a FA and is pretty much gone unless he signs for peanuts. And to the previous poster about wanting Ross, not happening either, in his first season, he's already showing promise of being better than DeRozan.
