Default Rumor: Pau Gasol likes Chicago Bulls

http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.c...go-bulls-okay/

Interesting read. According to this source, which is pretty credible, Pau and Kobe can't stand each other. Who ever woulda thunk it?

There's been a lot of talk about Pau & Kobe not getting along anymore. I don't see why Chicago & LA would make a trade though. It just doesn't seem to benefit both teams. Pau's contract is going to make him very difficult to move so I wouldn't think he'd have much of a say in where he could potentially land if he does get traded.

Yeah and the article pretty much makes that same claim. We really wouldn't want Boozer. He's a shorter Pau Gasol. Nothing else on the team seems to be worth seeking with Pau Gasol as our trade bait. Unless of course they wanted to offer us D-Rose, there is really no way this would happen unless a third team got involved. Who knows? Minnesota? Houston? Other than that, no way.

I dont get why they stopped getting along either. In a marriage, a husband and wife both satisfy each other's needs through gender roles, and obviously sex. When one stops doing his share, the marriage fails, without question. Kobe the husband, and Pau, obviously the wife, have stopped winning, which is making this tandem a complete fail after 3 successful years in a row.

Maybe adding Deng would make it a bit sweeter? Deng and Boozer for Pau and Artest?

Maybe Deng and Noah for Pau and Artest? Then we send Bynum for Deron williams straight up.. D-Will/Kobe/Deng/Noah

Why would Chicago break up their team?

Sam Smith is a guy who's known to make ish up.

If we were to trade with Chicago though, I don't think they'd give up Deng + Noah. I think something more like Deng/Gibson/filler is more reasonable.

This is more along the lines of what I was think of.

Noah+Deng for pau+Matt barnes or ebanks(younger,cheaper)

Then we flip Andrew + Steve Blake(maybe goudelocke) for deron Williams and marshon brooks.

Now we look like

Pg Dwill
Sg kb
Sf Deng
PF Lamar (we sign him)
C Noah

Our bench will be
Pg sessions
Sg marshon brooks(straight scorer. "Kobe lite" guy weve been waiting for. Fire off the bench
Sf metta
PF mcbob
C Jordan hill

Then hopefully we still have goudelocke and ebanks. 2 really good young prospects

If we keep ebanks and goudelocke then we have a strong ass bench with brooks and sessions. Add metta and hill and mcbob? We got quality bench that will be one of the greatest benches in the league

I don't want anything from Chicago. Pieces just don't work.

This is what I would want to see.....

Trade Bynum plus Blake to NJ for D Will and Lopez....

Then send Lopez and Gasol to Orlando for Howard....

Find away to get Lamar back.....resign Ramon and there you go....

D will
Kobe
Artest
Lamar
Howard

Ramon off bench
Hill
Etc.

My pipe dream

You do know that Orlando was willing to take Lopez and couple other dudes for Howard alone? Why would Brooklyn Nets give up D-Williams and Lopez for Bynum+Blake when they can keep D-Williams and still get Dwight?

D-Williams AND Dwight and scrubs OR Bynum and scrubs? What would you take if you were Brooklyn Nets?

The Lakers best hope is that the Nets don't land a top 3 pick tonight.... check out this article:
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--ne...-williams.html

It appears Williams wants out. If the Nets get that #1 pick that would be enough to get Orlando to bite at the trade I would bet. I can see Howard getting moved before next season, they just need a GM first. If they don't land a top 3 pick I would think the Lakers have a better offer to make Orlando for Howard, which would mean the Nets may be forced to move Williams too. It'll be very interesting to see how the ping pong balls land tonight. Everybody keeps assuming Charlotte gets the #1 pick but it's kind of rare for the team with the worst record to end up with the top pick.

Maybe true. Interestingly enough, he does win a lot. Anyone going to the lakers need to understand that to play with Kobe, you must do all the dirty work if you a) want to keep Kobe trusting you and b) win a championship.

Kobe has went away from his team ball approach that resulted in 3 finals appearances in a row as well. During this time, the lakers were merely unbeatable.

If he had guys like Howard and/or Williams he would certainly trust them. I don't blame him for not trusting Pau anymore.... who really does???
