Williams/Pekovic/Ridnour only make a combined 13Mil, they'd have to ad to it to make the salaries match.
Is there any way we can add salary for them?> We have so much redundant salary.... Landry, Kleiza, Amir.... we gotta dump more.

Lowry/ridnour
Derozan/Ross
Kirilenko/pietrus
Williams/Davis
Valanciunas/Amir

We could try jose and Bargnani to lakers, kirilenko, Williams, and ridnour to raptors, and Minnesota gets Gasol and kleiza.
But I love pekovic's game. He could be an asset in a subsequent trade. But that's a downgrade on the wing for the t wolves.

I think if we acquire Paul, we keep for for needed vet presence and Jonas mentoring.

Or we try and route him to OKC just to burn the Lakers.

It's tough to move these big salary guys in-season without having to waive a mass of players. That's another arrow in our quiver - LAL would only have to ct one guy trading with us. And if they can answer. The requirements, Ebanks or Morris can fit.

On the topic of this trade, can you imagine Kobe reacting to Bargs as a teammate? That would be worth the price of admission.

and what abut NOH/minny/LAL/TOR trade

NOH get D williams + cunningham + 1st memphis 2013 (minny) + 2nd rd tor
Minny get Gasol
Lakers get Caldy+ Anderson
Toronto get ridnour + Pekovic

LAL get what they want a fonrtcourt with a PF to space the floor alongside D12. + a pg whom can pass well to d12 or kobe.

We get some nice return for caldy

lowry/ridnour/lucas
dd/ross/fields
Pietrus/kleiza/anderson
ED/Amir/ACY
JV/Pekovis/Gray

On a sidenote, Gasol would look amazing in MIN. He'd be the absolute perfect fit with their high post offence. Him and Love would create an amazing duo offensively, and with Rubio running the show, we'd have another Sacramento Kings 2002 on our hands. And who knows, maybe a rejuvenated Gasol goes back to being a good defender like the 2008 version. MIN would be loaded. Though itd have to be a 3 team deal since Pek wouldnt fit with Howard.

NOH gets jobbed, and we give up Jose to get Pekovic back? Seriously?

Pekovic is becoming one of the better centers in the NBA. Ridnour and Jose have near same value. So yes, we'd be ripping off MIN.

The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly received inquiries for Pau Gasol, but Gasol's trade value is dropping.

"Now you have to wonder if some of his performance issues are knee-related," one NBA general manager with past interest said on Wednesday.

Gasol, 32, has missed the past two games due to knee tendinitis.

I'd take pekovic over JV any day, I think he'll be a better player down the road and is definitely a much better player now.

The Lakers have no use for williams or pekovic, the first one is useless and the second one is redundant with Howard and Hill. Bargnani is a MASSIVE gamble for them, but LA is the perfect place for him, a system that will cater to his strengths and the best center in the world to cover his ass. Given that his individual defense is pretty decent, he may work out for them.

I would LOVE a three way trade where we get pekovic and Minesotta gets Gasol,we have no use for Gasol here. He's injured, old, unbelievably expensive and probably won't be super motivated either.

Jose + Bargnani for Gasol straight is a bad trade for us. Sure, we'll win more games this season, but down the road, it kills our cap space for two years and without any picks, we're basically going to be a .500 team until he expires. Not to mention that Colangelo will think we're on the brink, so he'll probably try to trade our prospects for more veterans.
