Guys I know I'm a little unrealistic most times but that's because I want this team to win. You can't have a bunch of role players. You need a superstar and a #2 that can be #1 on most teams. Anyway I came up with this trade.
L.A. doesn't want to trade Pau unless it solves their pg issue and we all know Gilbert Arenas isn't the answer.
Gets Pau Gasol/Devin Ebanks/2 2nds from Lakers
MIN trades Michael Beasley/Brad Miller/2012 Utah 1st
Gets Kevin Martin/2012 Bobcats 2nd round pick
Bobcats trade Dj Augustine/Boris Diaw/Matt Carroll
Gets Luke Walton/Metta World Peace/Brad Miller/2012 Dallas 1st/2012 Knicks 1st/2012 Utah 1st
Why they do it
Lakers get Beasley who Kobe mentors which is a huge upgrade at sf. They also get a pg. A solid and cheaper replacement for Pau and tons of cap space.They will also save 3 million this year.
Houston gets Pau who they want badly w/o giving up Lowry. They also get back more than a million less and with their cap space they can get a center and more pieces.
MIN gets the scoring 2 and can finally make Derrick Williams feel less of a caged animal.
Metta has already expressed his desire to not wanting to play for the Bobcats when the idea was brought up last season. He is crazy enough to leave 15 million on the table, but I think the Nets to fill out their roster will probably give him 3/12 after he declines his player option. Bobcats will still have the mid level exception to sign Jamison while taking on Miller and Walton's contract. We will have 4 1st draft picks.
