Excuse me? We weren't a legit title contender the year after winning 2 titles? How can a team at tempting a 3peat without changing the roster suddenly not even be a contender? We were the 3rd or so best team both years. Granted, thats the most we'll ever be now.

Lakers are exploring options for a Pau Gasol trade, but nothing is imminent, according to a person familiar with the conversations.

Yeah but to be fair the Lakers only paid Barnes vet min. I'm sure Steve Blake brought a lot less to the team for a cool 4 mill

Lakers need a bench. They don't have to get a superstar to be a contender.

To think the 3 year MLE is actually helps the Lakers from doing something stupid. Amazing how they can convince Odom to go for a 3 year deal with a team option but throw Ron Artest and Steve Blake 5 and 4 year contracts respectively.

You can get a bench only by trading pau or bynum. If its bynum as showtime pointed out, you can get an amazing bench and also give pau who is a 2x champion the option to show he can still do it. Its absolutely essential. I only dream the thing holding them back is constantly waiting on howards decision because they want howard for bynum.

Unless you think murphy kapono mcroberts type signings are going to be what gets us over the hump

I would be going for Steve Nash. That guy is just what we need, plus he wants a ring, and the Lakers are his only chance to get one.

No they need a superstar. They have 1 guy that plays like absolute crap in the playoffs and another that has dreams of the playboy mansion when he should be guarding the paint. You can build a bench by SMARTLY using the mini MLE and vet mins, but you this is still a superstar league.

We need a PG with experience, plus that guy is a great play maker. And with Kobe and Bynum he'd be phenomenal. He can keep the team together too, would all around improve them greatly.

Gasol was emasculated when his girl dumped him before the playoffs a year ago, and you never know what you're gonna get from Bynum

either Drew has to learn to face double teams or both need to be dealt immediately (keeping Pau isn't an option since he'll never grow his sack back)

No way do you trade Bynum for bench players. You only trade Bynum for Howard. I would rather trade Pau for a good package.
Don't we have an 8.9 million trade exception? Can't we use that for a trade?
If so, that should be used to get some good bench players.
