    The best thing for us to do is trade Dragic/Scola to the lakers for Pau G....throw in a pick form the Lakers and you have a very strong frontcourt...

    K.Low
    K.Mart
    ChaPs
    Pau G
    Dalem"beer"

    Inside and outside scoring with a defensive anchor in the middle....makes sense and takes care of our need for a big and there need for a PG and a starter to fill in for Pau G....

    If we are giving up that, might as well trade for Ray Allen. Let's trade Martin, Scola, Hill, Thabeet, Bud, T-will, Flynn and Ny pick for Garnett, Allen and 2nd rd pick.

    Bring up Morris and Sign Greg Smith

    Lowry/ Dragic
    Lee/ Allen
    Parsons/ Morris
    Garnett/ Patterson
    Dalembert/ Smith

    We would get some national publicity with that lineup which could hopefully land us some big FAs with all of the money off the books next year.

    Celtics still can contend and get like 16mil off the books with the 09 bust quartet. They can use that money and try to get good young big and start re-tooling for the future. Bud's cheap contract is great for a team that wants cheap talent.

    I had a crazy idea. Keep in mind I've been one of Lowry's biggest supporters on this board. But I'd like you guys to give this one some serious thought:

    Rockets trade: Kyle Lowry, Luis Scola, Hasheem Thabeet
    Rockets receive: Pau Gasol, Steve Blake, 2012 1st Round Pick

    Lakers trade: Pau Gasol, Steve Blake, 2012 1st Round Pick
    Lakers Receive: Kyle Lowry, Luis Scola, Hasheem Thabeet

    I realize it looks bad from the Rockets perspective, but consider this:

    Dragic, is much, much better as a starter. For his career, when he gets the starting nod, he's averaged 12.7 ppg, 5.7 rpg , 7.4 apg, 2.1 tov, .462 FG% .359 3P%

    Though we lose Lowry's playmaking ability, we can run more of Adelman's Princeton sets with Pau initiating the offense from the high post.

    A lineup of:

    Dragic / Blake
    Martin / Lee
    Parsons
    Gasol / Patterson
    Dalembert

    Would easily make us a better team THIS year, IMO. The Knicks pick and the acquired Lakers pick could be expected to bring in an impact player through the draft. Morris is waiting in the wings.

    I think I'd do that.

    question is, would the Bulls jump on it?

    They would welcome both Scola and Lee with open arms..they would also get rid of Boozer without a problem, but its so tough for them to loose Asik..

    Anybody but the Lakers man! I would hate to give up Lowry especially to a team like that.

    I look at it this way, Gasol is getting up there in age (late 20s I believe) and Kyle is still a year or 2 away from his prime (26 years of age) why make a trade just to make the playoffs this season and pawn off the future of the franchise to a preimer Western Conference contender.

    I would not do it only because their is no upside in this besides making us slightly better odds to make the playoffs as the 7th or 8th seed.

    I vote no.

    I wouldn't involve Lowry in any deal to LA, unless it means we're getting Bynum back. I don't want Gasol, and he doesn't want to be here.

    Let's assume the Knicks want to break up 'the experiment' (http://www.nba.com/2012/news/features/shaun_powell/01/27/knicks/index.html?ls=iref:nbahpt1) ... I guess not, but let's 'assume' :grin:

    Rockets trade: Martin, T-Will, Thabeet, Bud, Hill and both 2012 1st round draft picks.
    Rockets receive: Melo, Brook Lopez

    Knicks trade: Melo
    Knicks receive: Martin, T-Will, A. Morrow and both 2012 1st round draft picks of the Rockets

    Nets trade: Brook Lopez
    Nets receive: Thabeet, Bud, Hill

    The Rockets ... Why? Getting an All-Star SF (Melo) and a future All-Star Center (Lopez) are a no-brainer!

    The Knicks ... Why? Check article above and the fact the 'experiment' failed. They receive two 1st round draft picks, an All-Star caliber SG (Martin) and two talented SG/SF players in Morrow & T-Will.

    The Nets ... Why? They want to keep D-Will and sign D12 ... Lopez isn't going to be there next season. They receive Thabeet & Hill, both expiring (= cap space for D12) and Bud (SF/SG) to 'replace' Morrow. Maybe the Rockets could throw in a future 2nd round pick if needed.

    Rockets line-up:

    PG: Lowry/Flynn
    SG: Lee/Dragic
    SF: Melo/Parsons/Morris
    PF: Scola/Patterson
    C: Lopez/Dalembert

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=784u9us

    We can still trade Scola/Flynn for a better PF ...

    So you think thats the best deal the Nets can get for Lopez? A future allstar as put it?

    Melo and Scola beside each other is almost as worse as Martin and Scola. Just sayin...
