Came in here skeptical when I saw the Lakers were losing Bynum and Gasol. But this is a perfect example of making everyone happy.


For Orlando: a young nucleus built around Bynum and Derrick Williams wouldn't lose a beat to the one that they have now and could build on it for years to come.

For Minnesota:Gasol (most likely some other filler I'm guessing) would give them what they need to get over the hump when they're already 1 GB of the #8 seed. It would also give them a Spanish Television deal which is the real benefit of all of this for them being a small market team. Khan would look like a genius for once.

For Los Angeles: The Lakers get their dominant big man, and with Beasley at the 3 and McBob or (God forbid) Sheed at the 4 to pair with Kobe and JJ would be an upgrade over the team they had in the first half of the year.

But the real question is and my fellow Laker fans can help me out with this, I know we get alot of cap relief with this trade, and i'd a.ssume Steve Blake might be thrown in as a filler, but with all the bad contracts we have on the books (including Kobe's 30 mil next year) would we still have enough cap room to sign if he decides to walk as a FA in the summer?

Horrible trade for us, bynum sucks and will be be gone next year anyways (no way we res-sign that bum to an ever bigger/dumber contract) and while williams is good, its not enough for the best trade a.sset in the NBA especially when you consider what teams gave up for CP3/Melo

I will say that i like Williams alot and would be happy to get him but unless hes the guy we build the whole team around, its not a good trade for us

were not getting any cap relief in this at all

we would still be waaaay over the cap and have no shot at signing deron williams
We'd lose almost $40 mil off our cap number of $67 mil next season giving up Bynum Gasol and a filler. With taking in Beasley's contract we'd have the option of not resigning him and JJ's contract is only 4.5 mil. So even with Howard max deal around $19 mil, if they trade Metta or Luke retires this summer we could offer Deron a max deal and still be under the new 58 mil cap. They'd just have to do what Miami did with a deeper draft this year and fill the roster with people who would play for the minimum aka Sheed and Gil


If it went down like this, D Will would have a hell of a decision to choose between staying in Brooklyn for more money, going to play for the best owner (if you're a player) in his hometown w/ Dirk, or joining Kobe and Dwight and dominate the league for the next 2 years and continue the Laker dynasty.

people saying Minnesota is giving up too much aren't realizing they already offered up a similar package for Gasol and Beasley could get signed into the trade exception without giving much of anything back.


Also Williams, Barea, and Beasley all avg less than 25 min a game, less than 12 pts a game, and all have avg PERs. These are 3 avg players who they don't really need to gain an all star who your PG of the future is comfortable with and used to playing together. Kevin Love although he is 23 is avg almost 40 min a game and it would give them probably the deepest frontcourt in the league with Love Gasol and Pekovic. All while 1GB or the 8 seed

Not to mention the hundreds of millions of dollars they'd get from a Spanish Television deal, you realize how much of a boost that is for a small market team?

I know BX gotta be smarter than that to realize that all of these teams win in this deal. It's alot better than the NJ deal centered around Brook Lopez, Marshon Brooks and picks, and Dwight would go to a playoff team THIS year, not a team that's 10-25 and sacrificing their future to sign a big duo for their new arena.
