I wouldn't even touch this deal.  Pierce > Gasol.

Bad. I heard it was deemed false and it seems very unlikely

Source?...thanks
Source is Marc Stein in the weekend dime
http://espn.go.com/nba/dailydime/_/page/dime-130125-26/nba-scouts-saying-now

"So it's premature, to me, to throw Pierce's name up there with Rudy Gay and Pau Gasol on the list of high-profile names available this trade season, even though we've heard more than one rival team speculate -- given that the Celtics and Grizzlies, sources say, have indeed held some exploratory trade talks since Gay hit the market -- that a three-way deal where Pierce lands in Memphis, Gasol goes to Boston and Gay joins the Lakers makes "some sense.""

Evantime, thanks for the source, but that was the same source I referenced in the OP.

What I was asking was the source to the claim that:

"I heard it was deemed false and it seems very unlikely."


Thanks again, though. TP

No way. Getting Gay makes more sense.

I think this makes sense for the Celtics and Lakers. I just still can't wrap my head around why the Grizzlies would trade one of their best players for a 35 year old SF on the downward slope of his career.

Oh, well Stein can't give up his scout source otherwise that scout would get fired and he would no longer have a source.

I wonder if the Grizzlies would agree to this? They get more athletic and the Celtics get a viable PG in return and a legit big. Doubtful.

Lakers trying to add a young star in Rudy Gay to go along with Dwight Howard.

Building the foundation for the next 5-8 years of title-contention post Kobe Bryant.

Apart from the fact that Gay ain't no star.

Yeah right now if you were rank them it would go:

#1 - (Healthy) Pau
#2 - Pierce
#3 - Gay

... Gay is aiight... good player.  Clearly he's younger, but beyond that the other two are better right now. 

I also think adding Pau by subracting Pierce actually does make us a significantly better team... not because Pau is that much better than Pierce it's just simply what our roster looks like right now.  It's a mess right now.  Our 4th best player (Jeff Green) sits on our bench, our PF is playing out of position at center and we're starting a backup next to him.

PG - Rondo
SG - Lee
SF - Green
PF - KG
C - Pau 
.... that roster makes more sense.   Still probably not a major contender unless KG starts playing vintage ball, but Pau and KG next together would be awesome.

Pau makes almost 3 mil more then Pierce. Does that trade work with our cap situation? Were restricted after using the MLE on Terry.

'16 1st - best of SAC & LAC

Lee starts over Bradley? 

This team looks OK but Pierce, despite his recent woes, is still the one guy on this team who can generate his own offense.  Pau can post up and pass which adds a nice dimension to the offense (and he can rebound), but we lose a lot without Pierce.  Just look at how bad we've been with 'bad Pierce'.  'Good Pierce' makes a huge difference.   If Pierce is done then this makes us much better. But I doubt Pierce is done.

Anybody in?

Nope.

Adding Pau but subtracting Pierce doesn't make us a contender.

TOTALLY disagree. Pierce looks awful. Gasol and KG down low would be deadly together. I would've made this trade yesterday and twice the day before.

I'd rather get back Zac Randolph than Gasol- aren't Memphis trying to dump his deal?
Imagine Zeebo in the paint next to KG with Rondo dishing him the ball.

We'd have two stretch bigs and one that's one of the best rebounders in the NBA.

Danny Ainge tried to get CP3 & David West to add to KG, Pierce and Ray Allen. Just Imagine if the stars had aligned...

Have you guys watched Pau play recently?  He's played poorly his last two trips to the playoffs, and has been bad this year. 

Our biggest issue right now is with offense, and Pau isn't going to elevate us in that regard.

D. West / R. Anderson / C. Copeland
L. Deng / V. Carter / D. Rudez
