The idea that Houston had, wasn't so much to get rid of Scola. They are really unsettled at their 5 spot, and picking up Gasol would lessen the blow if they don't get the desired performance from whatever Center they settle on.
For us, they wouldn't trade Scola. They like Scola. Boozer doesn't fit their needs, Scola doesn't fit ours. I like Scola too, but he would basically be fighting with Deng's comfort zones.
Martin is great, I would love to add him. He would fit well if he can stay healthy.
