Default Marc Stein: Wolves offer Pekovic+Derrick Williams Package for Pau

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...ries-pau-gasol

lakers are unwilling to trade Pau for that package atm. Lakers no.1 target accodring to article is Ryan Anderson(who I have been telling you guys all along).

Ryan Anderson untouchable? That's a joke.
Decent player, but way, way overpaid.
Does Anderson get along with Howard?

Pau is far from being a great player. At this point, he is closer to being a scrub, IMO. Pekovic is a nice player, but I agree that the deal does not benefit the Lakers.

A healthy Pekovic is a much better player to have long-term than a Pau Gasol with bad knees.........

I hate almost every post I ever saw from you, hateful, spiteful, loathsome things to read and it seems to be getting worse. But this is true.

Because the Hornets don't have anyone else.
Eric Gordon hasn't played one game, and Davis isn't a scorer.

Anderson is a good player, but Gasol is far better.
But Anderson has youth on his side, which Gasol doesn't have.

I get why the Hornets wouldn't want to trade him - he's young, they are building a locker room culture with young guys, he's happy there, he's a good fit long term team-wise and skill-wise.

But to call him untouchable is a joke.

Gasol is a better fit in Minnesota. If I were Minny, no way would I trade Pekovic. No way.

The Lakers are probably going to have to bite the bullet and keep Gasol for the next 2 years.

Pekovic and Howard - rebounding-wise, best in the league. And interior defense - forget about it.

If I were the Lakers, I would jump on that immediately.

Plus Pekovic is young.

So what, LA'd play Howard at the 4? It's decent value for Pau at this point, but the pieces don't fit.

Thing with Pek is he even less fits the system for Mike D and while he is the best bursier in the NBA he doesn't even the shot or passing of Gasol, but than again Pek and a former #2 draft pick more than works for the Lakers but imo does nothing to make the Twolves better.
