Celtics, Lakers, Kings, Raptors Idea
« on: January 09, 2013, 09:51:47 AM »
BOS Sends - Rondo, Terry, Lee, Green, Sullinger, Melo
BOS Gets - Cousins, Evans, Lowry, Duhon, Ebanks

LAL Sends - Gasol, Duhon, Ebanks
LAL Gets - Bargnani, Terry, Lee, Green

TOR Sends - Bargnani, Lowry
TOR Gets - Gasol

SAC Sends - Cousins, Evans
SAC Gets - Rondo, Melo, Sullinger

Boston starts Lowry, Bradley, Pierce, Garnett and Cousins with Barbossa, Evans, and Bass off the bench. That is a championship 8 man rotation.

LA trades a starter that doesn't fit for two starters that do, and a bench. No brainer for them.

Toronto dumps a dead-weight contract and their backup point guard for an all-star center.

Sacremento gets the best player in the deal, changes the culture and makes room for Robinson as a starter.

Yeah, but why would TOR Want Pau Gasol? They aren't going anywhere and by the time they are he'll be much too old.

Couple of reasons for Toronto:

  • Gasol might get them into the playoffs
    Gasol - Valanciunas is a decent front line
    Lowry is an expensive backup point guard @ $6m per season
    Bargnani is a bad contract on that team - 3 years, $33m
    They can let Gasol expire and get $20m under the cap next year

Would you trade your backup point guard and a bad contract for Gasol?

That trade would lead to Pierce KG and Terry all retiring after this season. I dont see that team being championship caliber now or in the future.

Too many pieces. Toronto wouldnt want Gasol. We get a ton of talent back but it just wouldn't work out.
