So on the NBA preview show Magic proposed what I think is one of the best trade possibilities for the Lakers, but i dont know how feasible it is given the popularity of the player theyd recieve.
Atlanta receives Pau Gasol
Los Angeles receives Josh Smith.
Pau and Horford playing 4-5 interchangibly, and the Lakers get more athletic.
Hawks are in rebuild mode, no way they take on Gasol now.
My only question is J Smoove in their plans for the future?
Only way josh smith would be traded would be for younger players + draft picks
Then they would have to resign Smitty and Howard uh no
except Horford and Lou Williams have one year deals. This is by design not because Ferry can't lock guys up. You gotta give Ferry credit, he traded a untradable contract to the Nets, why would he let Mitch Kupchak and Magic dupe him into taking one.
They should have done this trade before the Hawks traded away Joe Johnson. No way they do it now, especially when there are teams out there willing to give up some young players and picks for a guy like Josh Smith.
