Default BS Gasol Rumor may not be so BS after all....

According to ESPN, during the Hawks game on Feb 20th, Mitch Kupchak, GM for the Lakers was spotted in the United Center at 5:45 pm CT. Then the unusual case of Derrick Rose refusing to take part in post game interviews, something he's been known to take part of every game for the past 4 years.

Hmm....

Hmm....

Who'd we trade for him, though? I don't want to give up more than Boozer, and I'm sure the Lakers wouldn't accept that deal, although Boozer is the better mid-range shooter, and Gasol gets good looks from the mid-range all the time. So Boozer may be a better fit in their new offense.

Maybe Korver + Boozer + Charlotte's pick for Gasol and Kapono?

I'm almost positive that Rose didn't do his post game because he didn't want to talk about his back and how that felt, and probably just wanted to go get proper treatment done.

There was a rumor from a guy on RealGM that works with the Bulls and he said the Bulls are also looking at Anthony Morrow and a trade with Portland that was Asik and Brewer for Matthews and Thomas. If Gasol to the Bulls could happen there might be a 3 team trade with one of those teams?

I like the Matthews deal more than the Gasol deal to be honest.

People in the Lakers Forum are being delusional. There's a thread that involves Boozer and Deng for Gasol. Basically they'd want Deng for free. There making it sound like Gasol averages something like 23ppg and 15rpg.

Yeah they all complain about how bad their players suck but then want every player for them. They wanted Kirk, Noah and a 1st for Bynum and Morrison a few years ago.

Damn, so apparently now, its not true that Rose had any part of a Gasol talk. Although I wonder if the GMs still might be doing something in the background. I still find it hard to believe the GM for the Lakers just randomly in Chicago at the united center for no reason.

They're talking about it again on the main forum. I do really want this to happen. Noah & Gasol... holy shit. Gasol & Rose. Man... I truly think this makes the Bulls contenders even more than they already are with Boozer.

I don't want to see this happen. I'm not trying to be purposefully stagnant with our roster, but every move proposed has just as much downside, as it has upside. Not when we are damn near with our backs against the wall, cap-wise. One move that looks good on paper can be so bad in reality, that it pushes us into the 5-8 spots in the east for a few years.

What's so bad about Gasol though? I'm not a fan of giving up Asik, Mirotic or our Bobcats pick, but I feel like Brewer/Korver are easily replaceable but Watson not so much. In a deal for Gasol given the Bulls find a third team, I wouldn't mind giving up Watson either though.

I was thinking about it yesterday, and there isn't really one thing that Boozer does better than Gasol... even his best traits (passing, rebounding). On the other hand, if we were to sit Boozer today and a trade didn't go down, that could cause problems. I'm a bit of a Gasol homer though, always loved him.

It's not about Gasol in a vacuum.

Why would you give up Korver or Brewer so easily? These guys aren't all-around players, but the things they bring to the table are in an elite class. And we got them relatively cheap!

Gasol is burnt out with drama. He is such an emo player. While he is excellent, he's past his prime. Gar said it pretty well, when he said the Bulls are getting better, not because of new faces or roster changes, but because they are growing together. Adding Gasol is like throwing a monkey wrench into the whole organization at this point. We need to do quite a lot to make him fit.
