Raptors interested in Gasol?
 
Jose and Bargs for Pau?

Quote:

The trade could also help Toronto lure in a free agent. Steve Nash is reportedly interested in returning to his native Canada to finish out his career. The ability to join forces with Gasol might be the deciding factor in where Nash decides to sign.

The Lakers could insist that the Raptors include another player, but Calderon and the pick would probably be enough to get the job done. The deal works under the current salary cap rules because of the trade exception L.A. received from trading Lamar Odom in December.

They were talking on ESPN today as well... best source I could find but its a few days old

we dont need gasol at all

Dark Knight 06-30-2012 12:28 PM

If Nash is coming, I do this in a heartbeat. Screw rebuilding, we're going win-now mode baby! :headbang:

Dark Knight 06-30-2012 12:29 PM

Gasol would also be the perfect mentor to JV.

this kind of shit pisses me off,

bargs had a great year this year, if he was in the lineup where close to a .500 team period,

now that we have watched bargs play so many times and make so may mistakes where going to trade him away after we develop him into a great player in my opinion

this is why bad teams stay bad and good teams like the lakers stay good

0nekhmer 06-30-2012 12:37 PM

I doubt we get gasol for Jose + pick.

He did? He had a 13 game stretch which was solid, he's done that before. His shotting was at an all time low, his ppg went down, his rpg were still shit, and he was injured most of the season. I liked what i saw at the begining of the season but i have no problem trading him, but i just don't think Gasol is the answer. Now if we did this and still added a SF (ie: Iguodala or Deng) i'm in.

Nash
Derozan
Iguodala
Gasol
Valanciunas

50+ win team

If Bargs + Calderon are sent to LAL wouldn't we still have our capspace + amnesty as well?

jeffb 06-30-2012 12:44 PM

BTW, nowhere does it say we're interseted. It states that it could be a possible trade that makes sense.


Not happening!

rapsmannn 06-30-2012 12:44 PM

i would argue with andrea without igoudala and gasol where a 50 win team, hell with bargs,jose and demar where close to 41 win team,

with nash,bargs, and derozan where a 50 win team

bargs at this point is a better player

pg nash
sg ross
sf igoudala
pf bargnani
c valanciunas

Gasol>>Bargs (for a couple more years imo)

I'm basing that on the experience in the playoffs Gasol brings and his rebounding. And the fact that Bargnani has yet to show for a full season, let alone in the playoffs that he can be consistent.

Interested to see what Nash could do with Bargs. Would be preferential to have an center to slot in the starting lineup to ease Val into the league, but Pau's just not worth anywhere near the amount he's paid these days. That being said, maybe a change of scenery could turn things around? I'd offer Jose and Amir.

FYI. Gasol has 2 years/$40 million left on his contract

Bargs/Gasol/Nash (around $42 mil next season)
Miami's Big 3 ($56 mil)

Are you f*ing nuts? JV needs to develop into hard nosed center, not Gasol! (he is amazing and all but that is not the footsteps i want JV to follow!)

Ataf 06-30-2012 02:13 PM

lol gasoft>.<, he's done... as in he's no longer an allstar. Two playoff runs made that clear. His rebounding and blocking(not all-around defense) is well that's about it. His pnr D makes me want to burn my eyes. Too damn slow.

Concerning bargs for Gasol, never would happen :s but for argument's sake.

Bargs is going into his prime this year, Gasol has been declining heavily and clearly since 10-11 playoffs. Gasol in those two playoff years: 12.8 ppg on 11.6 FGA fg%:43% 8.7 rebounds 3.7 assists on 3.1 t/o 3.4 fta (soft, wont ever get it done in the playoffs.) He blocked at a high 1.9, but please let me know how well he protected the paint (hint, he didn't.)
What's the excuse again? He was going to be traded 6 months before? Please... That's pathetic.
He's got the long reach to help out a lot in the paint for the block, and rebound well... He fits better the Centre imo, but he's so weak and slow now... He'll decline even MORE this year. however, is a vet and would bring experience and help JV a lot with those finals appearances, where he played like a legend (atleast for ORL & 2nd BOS series). Gasol can play tough when he wants to, or is motivated to. JV doesn't have that issue apparently. So I don't think a player can rub his 'softness' onto someone.

and cmon bargs got injured, lock out season with a new coach... He played great before injury. He's claiming in the off-season he's finally back 100%, which he wasn't after he came back from injury. He played 100% in what? 11 games? These sorta injuries happen sometimes, more frequently in a lockout year where the damn coach(As much as I love casey) is fucking with the rotations and forcing him to play incredible amount of mins. I think it's good that we have Log jam there at the pf spot... maybe he wont make bargs play 44 mins+ right after an injury back to back.

however, getting Gasol for Jose and pick (Assuming nash comes here) is a complete steal. Since Jose is getting amnestied if Nash comes here :(, It\'s getting something for nothing.

Another soft player.
