Trade Idea (LAL,ATL,POR)
Atlanta gets Pau Gasol, Luke Babbit and Dal 1st rounder from LAL (Next year Pau plays Centre Al Horford moves to PF)
Portland gets Kirk Hinrich, Matt Barnes and Steve Blake and LAL first Rounder
Los Angeles gets Ray Felton, Josh Smith, Gerald Wallace. (LAL get more athletic and save money from getting rid of Steve Blake. Josh Smith has one less year on his deal than Pau.
Are you telling me Gerald Wallace (multifaceted defender, 16 ppg, 6.5 rpg) is worth 3 thirty year old back ups and a late 1st round pick? I think Atlanta would have to give up a lot more starting with Marvin Williams, a first round draft pick, and maybe swapping Teague instead of Hinrich, since the whole reason Portland would want to be part of this trade is to improve their PG position.
Thats way way too much in favor of the lakers..
one way trip to neg city
Portland isn't getting enough back... unless you consider Wallace a half-year rental, then, not so terrible.
