Lakers Lakers want both Howard and CP3?

Quote:
One of the reasons we just went through that painful lockout, was the claim by small-market team owners that they’re sick and tired of teams like the Lakers gobbling up all of the major talent in the NBA. Well, um, …. From Sheridan Hoops: “It’s not hard to tell who won this war–the owners, especially the big ones. Nor is it hard to tell which of them won the most: That was Jerry Buss, the biggest of all. When the NBA couldn’t get a full ban on sign-and-trades, it left his Lakers in position to pull off a coup they’re dreaming of, which would make signing LeBron James pale by comparison. If Dwight Howard and Chris Paul wind up on the market — a safe assumption as far as I’m concerned — the Lakers could offer Andrew Bynum for Dwight and Pau Gasol for CP3, or vice versa. Nothing says that they will be enough to land either player, but it should put the Lakers in the running for both. (Oh, and Dwight likes the Lakers. Asked which All-Star he would most like to play with last season, he answered ‘Kobe Bryant.’) Nor will finances be a problem, ever again. … Next season, the Lakers start their 20-year, $3 billion deal with Time Warner, which will take them from their annual $30 million from Fox Sports West to $150 million. On paper, that would put the Lakers, who now average a profit of $45-60 million, zooming past $150 million. In fact, an informed source projects an even higher figure, in the $170 million range. (To put that in perspective, Forbes said the Knicks made a league-leading $64 million profit in 2009-10. The Lakers will more than double that.) In either case, Jerry, Jim and Jeannie Buss are going to have a lot to say about what happens in this league for a long time …”

The Lakers are pushing hard to acquire Chris Paul by giving up Pau Gasol.

By using Gasol to acquire Paul, they then could deal Andrew Bynum in a package to the Magic for Dwight Howard.

A third team could be brought into the mix in the Gasol trade, with the Rockets mentioned as a leading contender.

Wait, they'd have to give up Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum for Howard (and Hedo Turkoglu's contract),1 and they'd have to give up Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom for Paul (and Emeka Okafor). Did you notice that Andrew Bynum was in both scenarios? This is why it's impossible for them to get Howard AND Paul (no matter how many ESPN shows are pretending we can). There's this little-known NBA rule that you can't put the same player in two separate trades. Please, everyone at ESPN, stop talking about this. I'm begging you.
Quote:
1.There's no way Orlando is taking less than "Gasol and Bynum for Howard and Turkoglu's contract." The Magic already know Chicago is willing to deal everyone on its team except Derrick Rose for Howard — the Lakers can't trump a "Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Omer Asik, cap fodder and $3 million for Howard and Turkoglu" offer without ponying up Gasol and Bynum. It's just a fact.

Hou has what New Orl wants in trade 4 CP: established players (Scola, KMart), youth (Budinger, Patterson), 1st-rnd picks (Own, NYK'12)..
