Actually you are wrong there. The American dollar has more value in Canada. Almost 20 cents on the dollar. They are getting paid in American funds but spending in Canadian funds. That is a huge benefit.

On a side note, hockey players never complain when they have to play in a non hockey mecca city like "Nashville, Columbus or Carolina". If anything, they like it because nobody knows who they are and they are free to roam around.

I hear ya. Players shouldn't bytch & moan no matter where they play. They make BIG coin for playing a game.

ps. I love Canada. 2nd best people in the world (close 2nd behind Australians, who are just TOO much fun).

Gasol's trade value has just gone through the friggin roof!
34 pts on 82% shooting, 9 rebounds and 8 blocks.
Those numbers are better than Tim Duncan in his prime.

Here's an offer that would be hard to refuse:

Deng, P.J. Brown's expiring contract, Tyrus Thomas, 2007 and 2009 1st round picks for Pau Gasol and Hakim Warrick.

I think West wouldn't have to think long to agree on the trade. Make it happen!

What do you think?

If the Bulls made the offer I stated above that would be perfect for a team that needs to rebuild. First you would get a player that is averaging 17.8 points ppg 6.8 rebounds ppg and most importantly he's only in his third year at 21 so his up side is huge! Perhaps he'll be a future all star by how much he's been improving. Next you would get a 6'11" veteran forward in P.J. Brown who has plenty of playoff experience, but what makes him most attractive is his 8.5 million dollar expiring contract. With Tyrus Thomas the Grizzlies would get an athletic promising young player who's potential is sky high while his defense is already evident at this point in his first year. The 2007 first round pick that Memphis would receive would be originally New York's pick, it's sure to be a lottery pick, but somewhere in the top ten is still a possibility. It all depends on how the Knicks continue playing though. No matter what happens with the pick it will be a valuable one because the 07' draft is going to be very deep. Finally, the Grizzlies would receive Chicago's 2009 first round pick, to put the cherry on top of the deal.

I think that would be an equitable trade. Jerry might go for something like that. Losing Deng would be easier than losing Gordon. Noc would be a good replacement for Deng and not cost as much. With Pau the Bulls would have all the pieces to win the east for sure. It would be tough to lose Warrick since I think he has some major potential. Pau would get his wish to play for
a legitimate contender too.

It would be tough to lose Warrick, but it would only be fair for the Grizzlies to give up at least one young player with potential along with Gasol since the Bulls would be giving up so much. Otherwise the deal wouldn't work.
