Please don't bring Gasol into this. Really sick of that rumour because it's never going to happen. To straight up get Gasol the Lakers would have to be looking to dump his salary, which they aren't, or want some other players that could round out the team, which we don't have. The third possibility is trading JV or Ross or Lowry for him but that's bad both long and short term. Basically if we're at all involved, it'll be three plus teams and even then it won't be Gasol who ends up here.
We're dead meat guys: we're officially so bad that A. free agents won't sign here, B. Lowry won't want to stay, C. We have no pick this year and D. We've dug ourselves such a deep whole that every other team in the league wouldn't dream of making a fair deal with us, because they don't have to and will instead try to scam us out of the few assets we do have.
Shit, I don't even think Ed will want to re-sign with us after this year. Even if he'd be our starting PF.
It's going to be a long next three seasons.
