OT, but do any of you actually read any other Lakers analysis besides the crap that passes for it on this site? Just wondering.

He's an elite power forward still.

1. Kevin Love
2. Pau Gasol/Chris Bosh/Dirk Nowitzki/Tim Duncan

KG is a center now.


That's not true either. NOTHING about the current Pau Gasol is elite.

And just because KG can play center doesn't mean he is anything but a power forward and he will go down as one of the greatest at that position

Pau Gasol is GONE

Not so much the former as the latter.

You can forget about Nash

https://twitter.com/#!/stevekylerNBA

Steve Nash tells SALM magzine --- "I’m not one of those people who believe I must win [a championship] to have a fulfilling career."

More from NASH --- "so other factors, such as salary, family, playing time, and opportunity for team success all factor in."


http://www.sportsnet...team_shortlist/

it is a three-team race for Steve Nash in free agency: Portland, Phoenix and Toronto," Smith explained.

As Raptors, Knicks & Mavs-fight 4 Steve Nash, the Lakers have also quietly entered the picture & are making a hard push, per league source.

He would be a huge upgrade, that isn't saying much considering Sessions is the other option, and he is barely serviceable. With the money Nash is going to demand, it just doesn't make any sense. This is a non story.

You can keep the Big 3 and add Nash it really does improve your offense especially if you consider theres not much of a market out there to get quality return for Bynum or Gasol

HANG TIME CAPITAL BUREAU — While the Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks have made strong pushes for free agent guard Steve Nash, the Los Angeles Lakers have, quietly, entered the fray for the 38-year-old guard and are making a strong bid to acquire him, according to a league source.
The Lakers, with a payroll already projected in excess of $83 million next season, would only be able to offer Nash an exception starting at $3.09 million for next season. It’s unlikely Nash would take that, so a sign-and-trade deal would be a more realistic possibility.

The Lakers do have a viable starting point guard they could send Phoenix in such a deal, Ramon Sessions, who became an unrestricted free agent after surprisingly opting out of the last year of his contract. Forwards Jordan Hill and Matt Barnes are also free agents.
The Lakers have also been looking to rid themselves of forward Metta World Peace, who has two years and $15 million remaining on his deal. But the Suns aren’t believed to be interested in World Peace.

Nash is mulling offers from the Raptors, who reportedly have a three-year, $36 million deal on the table, and the Knicks, who only have the $3 million exception to offer as well.
A source said Tuesday that Nash is allowing the Knicks time to try and create a sign-and-trade deal that would be palatable for Phoenix — and also get Nash a higher annual salary. But the Raptors put a crimp in New York’s plans Tuesday when they reached a verbal agreement with restricted free agent guard Landry Fields on an offer sheet worth $20 million for three years.

Fields was one of the players the Knicks had hoped to include in a potential sign and trade with the Suns. But the league’s rules prohibit a team from trading a player who has signed an offer sheet as part of a sign-and-trade deal.
The Mavericks are also looking at Nash, who left Dallas as a free agent in 2004 for Phoenix, after Nets free agent guard Deron Williams opted to remain in Brooklyn on Tuesday. But the Mavericks, according to a league source, have other possibilities if they can’t get Nash, including Clippers free agent Randy Foye, and Aaron Brooks, who played last season in China.

Because Brooks, who had played most recently in Phoenix in the NBA, wasn’t on the Suns’ roster at the end of last season, he can’t be used by the Suns as part of any sign-and-trade deal.

I wonder if the Lakers could pull off a Sessions for Nash deal. It would be a place where Sessions could start

Yeah lets just ignore EVERYTHING else he's good at. It doesn't matter that he's one of the most prolific passers in NBA history.
