    I couldn't see morey allowing that to happen where we give all the assets. NO must be getting One of our pieces (KMart/Lowry/Scola) with some prospects and picks, along with Bynum. Thats the only idea I can consider feasible. If we are giving all the assets, why doesn't morey offer Lowry/Kmart/Patterson/Morris and two pick then? That is a better deal then acquiring Bynum.

    I dont understand why some of you are botching about giving up too much. What exactly is this team giving up? They are going nowhere fast with the current roster. I'll take my chances with a completely new team, the worst thing that could happen is they still make the playoffs.

    Why not just trade for CP3 if we have what they want and flip him at the deadline if he wont re-sign?


    I am excited for Pau. I'd like to keep Martin and Lowry if we do get him.

    Good to see the Rockets be legit contenders in some trade talks. Just know that just because the media reports it means its fact.

    If the Rockets land Gasol in 3-way trade, expect them to make a strong run at Nuggets free agent center Nene, source tells @YahooSports.

    So I guess I have to take back all the bad things I've been saying about Bill Simmons' trade ideas if it takes Scola/Martin/Budinger/Patterson/2 #1s to get Gasol.

    Lowry/Dragic/Flynn
    Lee/Williams
    Morris/Parsons
    Hill
    Gasol/Thabeet

    That seems like a way, way, way worse team. Hooray Tanking? Oh, wait, we won't have any picks next year.

    Morey should be fired for that kind of deal if they don't get Paul.

    I still think Morey signs Dalembert and keeps Pau at PF. Basically the Lakers south without the Rapist.

    The Lakers are saving Bynum for a Dwight Howard deal..

    Morey is crazy if he helps the Lakers land Paul and Howard...an aging and expensive Pau Gasol is not worth it :mad:

    I like the frenzy on the BBS today.

    What if we're getting Lamar Odom from LAL too? We need a SF after all. Imagine a lineup of:

    Lowry
    Martin
    Odom
    Pau
    shotblocking center

    gasol at PF, that only makes sense if they can sign dalembert or nene because chandler is out of reach. shame yao retired, gasol and yao would be one of the best front courts ever.

    At the end of the day Morey must be thinking that getting gasol for kmart is the deal and Keeping Pat to replace scola. That is if Patterson isn't leaving as wekk

    I'm hoping some tweet typo is the cause of all of this. Some moron tweeted Pau instead of Paul.

    If you lose out on Luis and Martin and get Gasol at least we don't lose out on a lot of defense
    Sure we don't get alot of defense back :rolleyes:

    If that trade foes through, I'm officially off the Morey bandwagon. He should be fired immediately if that goes through.
