Will Pau Be Available?
With the Lakers on the brink and the finger pointing already starting, could Pau Gasol be available? He looks to be the scapegoat for the Lakers poor playoff run, and while he has certainly played better in the past, I'd take him on the Nets any day. Too soft? Please. The guy is a proven winner and has plenty of all-star appearances left.
It's unclear how we could get him without giving up Deron or Brook, but if the Lakers think the Kobe-Pau chemistry is not repairable, that Bynum is their center, and they need picks to prepare for post-Kobe, then perhaps a sign and trade with the Hump plus picks and flotsam could do it. Having the brothers-in-law Hump and Lamar battle for playing time would be a nice LA story. Maybe they will acknowledge the inescapable--that they can't contend without Farmar and Sasha (lol). Yeah, I'm dreaming, I know--dreaming of a Nets team with Brook, Deron, and Pau! We'd contend even if we still had only chicken wings, and would have some real chips to get Dwight (great, now I'm hungry). Pau power, Billy--get 'er done.
