Default Gasol to the Bulls deal back on?

There some rumblings out of Memphis that with the Grizz new style of ball, that Pau is most likely expendable.

What do you guys this of the deals that have been proposed below? Would you do it?

The question is how much you really can give up for a seventh-year player who never has been a good rebounder or defender and hasn't been on the winning side in a playoff game.
How about Tyrus Thomas and Andres Nocioni?

That's a deal that makes some sense for both sides in that it doesn't alter the Bulls' perimeter core of Kirk Hinrich, Ben Gordon and Luol Deng. And it gives Memphis an athletic runner in Thomas, who fits Iavaroni's fast-paced style.
