Lamar would be very valuable for the up-tempo style Memphis is trying to play. I would need to review the numbers and the contracts to see if the trade would be good for Memphis, but I think the Lakers or Toronto would be the first teams to look at if I would gonna trade Gasol.

Im starting to think maybe its best for pau to leave.Only because of ivaronis style.He is basicly making rudy his guy.Miller is playing to unselfish.Or he tries to hard.He is just playing off this year.I think we need better guard play.Jr.smith might be available.So is ridnour.We need some flare to get the crowd back.If we arent winning we at least need to look good.

Hi, as much as a boost Gasol may be for the Lakers, I don't really think we would trade odom and the machine for him. Anyways Sasha is staying, he's been playing better then everyone but kobe the last few games.

I agree in that Odom probably fits better for the up tempo style Memphis is playing, but I really don't think he (and Sasha) are worth Gasol -even taking into account that he isn't playing at his best in this system-.

Odom is goofy and would probably lower the overall team IQ, and idea I really dislike.

In a short term situation, I agree. In long term, I think it could be beneficial for the Grizzlies. Odom is contracted until 2009 only while Pau has a much longer contract. With Memphis entering the lottery with chances of getting a top 5 pick, they would have a very young and talented core (Conley+Gay+new pick) plus good cap space when Odom's contract ends. In three years they could have something close to a contender (or at least a PO team again).

Im a the point where I am ready for pau to go.Not because I dislike him.I want pau to move to a nationally viewed team.So that he can get the respect he deserves.And a fan base that will glorify him,not disown him.Memphis is horrible for him.I would love for him to go some where and be a side kick to a super star.Like cleveland or L.A. Just somewhere he can play where the crowd loves there home team.But with a star already there. Then when he wins a ring everyone in memphis will cry and it will be sweet.
