Top 5 Pau Gasol Trade Possibilities the Lakers Should Consider

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The Los Angeles Lakers are poised for some big trades this off-season and there is a good chance Pau Gasol will be playing for another team in 2012-13.

Gasol was nearly traded to the Houston Rockets before this season, and there has been speculation of him eventually leaving ever since.

There are many trades the Lakers could look at this summer, and there have already been names surfacing around. Here are five possible acquisitions the Lakers front-office could make with Gasol being the center-piece.

5: Los Angeles Lakers receive: SF Andre Iguodala, C Nikola Vucevic

Philadelphia 76ers receive: PF Pau Gasol

The Philadelphia 76ers have been shopping Andre Iguodala for quite some time now, but the right package hasn’t arrived yet. The Sixers are a rising team in the Eastern Conference, but one gets the sense that the team has too many emerging stars.

Players like Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner and Louis Williams are both great players, but the team doesn’t know which one of them will be their star. Holiday is becoming one of the best point guards in the NBA and it seems as though he is the future of the team. However, with Iguodala still on the squad, his growth can be stunned.

That is why giving Iguodala to the Lakers would make sense since it will allow Holiday to take control of the team while still having some guidance with a veteran. Gasol knows what it takes to win a title, and he can surely guide Holiday to a more predominate role on the team.

    LMAO @ these trades.. We aren’t trading gasol for a boozer or deng type player, we aren’t getting jennings and a potential all star demarcus cousins just for gasol and goudelock, iggy’s value is probably higher than gasol so they would probably want more, the rocket’s arent trading patterson he is their starting PF when scola is retired, the only realistic trade here is the josh smith trade.. and even then they still might want more for josh smith.

    • really?

      actually you are not very bright are you, Iggy’s trade value is not that high, in fact he is vastly overrated. and you do not get how some teams might value pau.

        Pau is aging,iggys presence for the sixers against the celtics put him up there

    Why would the kings do that?

    if i were to trade gasol id do the hawks trade because josh smith is a beast and add him plus world peace, kobe, sessions, and bynum and you got a championship team again. plus he is still young and can perform on both sides of the court. also marvin williams is a great player and can perform well too. they both lack the size of gasol but with their offensive/defensive performances it makes up for it. this would be a gain for us and a loss for them.

    the rockets one was ridiculous and the bucks trade will never happen in a million years this author is fucking stupid he just makes up deals that wont happen.

    • Sportsnut2083

      ya brennan i dont see n e of these going throught either but gasol will be traded maybe for d williams

  • Sportsnut2083

    josh smith trade is the most sense here than bynum for howard or go get d williams and bring hill and barnes back with odom for 1.8 mil makes the most sense here..lakers get howard or williams and the lakers win the whole thing next year

  • Sujag22

    shit stop being realistic after trade 3.  Come on now.. kings wont give up cousins.  they already fired a coach for him( who deserved it) or thornton for that matter either

  • Sti1lmatic

    Gasol for Andre Iguodala + Nikola Vucevic? Ramneet, you’ve gotta be smoking some real good WEED’NEET. That’s the biggest load of $hit for a trade that I’ve ever read about.

  • Yahsdha

    the kings/bucks deal for gasol is great i just dont know how realistic it is.. but i also like the rockets deal followed by the hawks deal.. and the bulls deal is plain awful.. boozer is not the boozer from the jazz..

    Andre Iguodala……..no thank you. The Lakers will most likely trade Pau to Houston or to Minnesota. Those are the two teams that wanted him the most.

  • Dtrout11

    give me Josh Smith and Hinrich, and you can have Gasol!

  • lakerman34

     The Kings have to be SUPER high to even CONSIDER that trade offer… There three best young players for an old Pau Gasol? SMH…

  • Phil7659

    This should be the lakers starting lineup next season…..PG:Kyle Lowry SG:Kobe Bryant SF:Micheal Beasly PF:Luis Scola C:Andrew Bynum. Trade Pau Gasol to the Rockets for Lowry and Scola, then trade Jordan Hill,Steve Blake, and Devin Ebanks to the t-wolves for Beasly. Its cheaper than getting d-will and d-12.
