Default Gasol for Cousins

A frontcourt of Cousins and Howard could be nasty. Maybe Cousins will give us that bit of an edge that we need to win. I am certain that Sacramento would do this trade straight up.

And let me add this: If Gasol comes up soft against Blake Griffin and the clippers on Friday, for me that seals the deal about him needing to go.


I think Cousins could come to LA and really get his shit together with the prospect of winning a championship.

You really think Cousins will help our current team out?
You will be adding in a huge headcase.

Him and Howard would not get along.

Demarcus is a young immature cancer of a player. He's more trouble than he's worth. And his value is actually high. Just imagine how much trouble that entails.

Basketball point of view, terrible. Two centers? No thank you. This team has enough issues as it is.

Absolutely not. Cousins has no range, and his post game is nothing spectacular over Gasol's (I prefer Gasol's post game TBH). He is a volatile individual that is trouble in the locker-room, and he would not be fair value for Gasol straight up. Heck, I would take a healthy Boozer over Cousins for regular season, and I don't consider Boozer a top 50 player in the NBA.

If DeMarcus Cousins gets his act together then it would be a fair trade. The issue is still that he has no range. Howard and him would be getting in each other's ways on offense. Maybe if we had no Howard and required a center, I may consider Cousins for Gasol. We already have a true center that is the best in the NBA. Respectfully, Cousins is not right for this team and this system.

Haha....our coach hates post play and can't figure out what to do with the best center in the league......to the point he's made him the 4th or 5th option

LF, you're still young, you can coach the Lakers one day, you couldn't do any worse than our last 2 coaches, at least you know how to work inside out and would work on defense & pick and roll........just something to think about

But the point is clear we need to make a trade. Keep Nash, Kobe and Dwight everybody else should be on the table.
