    Lakers probably want to keep Bynum so they can move him for Dwight Howard. :eek:

    If the Rockets get Paul Gasol...who do we give up where we don't cut deeply into the team?

    And, this is exactly the type of deal Morey does, finds a couple of teams willing to trade and then he sticks his neck in and makes it a 3 way to extract some talent out of the deal.

    How would we possibly be involved in dhoward if we get Gasol? What would we give up in getting Pau that would still enable us to have prospects for d12?

    They probably want to keep Bynum so they can trade him Dwight. It would freaking blow if the Lakers somehow got Paul and Howard while keeping Kobe.

    Who cares, remember what that D**K did to Barea in the playoffs. I don't want that dirty Bas***d on our roster.

    What if we picked up Pau and then got Marc in FA? Brothers of Destruction?

    Morey thinks he's Tony Montana. The dude is going to botch years of sacrifice just to rent a big name.

    Isnt Pau Gasol damn near 32 years old

    Give me Bynum instead

    Pau also looked like he was declining late last year( which is probably why the Lakers are trying to move him)

    I will will take Bynum over Gasol at this point of their careers

    Gasol would be great.

    We could spend cap on Marc Gasol, and perhaps he would ask Memphis not to match.

    Gasol/Gasol/Martin/Lowry would be contenders, would be a pipe dream.

    We would have cap room next year to sign him outright. In regards to a trade, we have some young talent in Morris and PPat and some decent draft picks.

    can marc play any 4? i know pau can play both but not sure if marc is any good at the 4. not that it matters, we have 16 power forwards anyway, although we would probably be down to half that number after any trades haha
