    I love the Chuckwagon, but at this point who cares? He does not make us a contender with Pau! He is a great role player but nothing more.

    I refuse to believe Morey is that dumb.

    Morey better make some other moves.

    Gasol, while soft, is still a pretty good piece. But I think everyone would agree Morey overpaid. I would've accepted Martin + Dragic or Scola + pick for Pau. Martin + Scola for Gasol is a steal for NO. Toss in picks/Dragic and Morey just got #*&^.

    Exactly! I'd be pissed if they dumped salary just to re-sign Chuck at $20million/4. We might as well go all out for a better center.

    Yeah, earlier in the thread I mentioned that we obviously had to give up either Scola or Martin to make a trade, but I wish we didn't have to also include Dragic. I'd rather have traded Budinger than Dragic, but I guess NOH needed a good back-up PG with Paul's departure. Apparently Morey sees more potential in Flynn than Dragic?

    I'd be pissed if Amare breaks in half and the NY pick turns out to be gold.

    I need to know more about this deal. We seem to be giving up a lot but then we could also be clearing up space for a center. I don't know, I'll wait until all the details are made clear.

    BAM! And here is Morey's big picture.

    Huge front court.

    Above average PG with all-star potential.

    Only thing im skeptical on is McHale's coaching ability.

    Morey's gonna strike out in FA anyway, no one will want to come here and we'll be stuck offering 11 million to Dalembert.

    Morey is an idiot.

    Lowry
    Lee
    Morris
    PP
    Gasol

    I've never been a big Gasol fan, but I'll wait to see how this all ends up before I get too upset. If this gives them an opportunity to get a quality free agent then I would probably feel better.

    Gasol is 31 years old. I don't know.
