Lakers trying to trade Pau Gasol to ATL for Josh Smith but ATL refusing
 

 
There has been noise for months about a potential move for the Lakers to trade power forward Pau Gasol to Atlanta for Josh Smith.

But ESPN reports a major hang-up in the Lakers' latest big-star move attempt: the Hawks.

Sources say that the Hawks, at present, have no interest in parting with Josh Smith and Kyle Korver for Gasol. Or even Smith and lesser parts for Gasol.

Positions can obviously change between now and the Feb. 21 trade deadline, but sources maintain that Atlanta has not been enticed in the least by the prospect of parting with the 26-year-old Smith -- even as he heads into unrestricted free agency -- for the 32-year-old Gasol. The Hawks, for the record, have also been telling interested teams that they value Smith and what he offers as a hybrid forward in an Eastern Conference that's generally been getting smaller.

via Weekend Dime -- Steve Nash and Mike D'Antoni get a second chance - ESPN.

Arguing that Smith would be an upgrade over Gasol is kind of difficult. He's exeptionally talented but tends to think he's a multi-spot shooter who can spread the floor. He can't. When he plays the post and on the glass, or off the cut, he's devastating. Next to Steve Nash he would be a more athletic, healthier Amar'e Stoudemire from his Phoenix days. But Nash has Dwight Howard. Pau Gasol fits a more important role of being the versatile big man who can pass, shoot, rebound for the Lakers under Mike D'Antoni.

Meanwhile, the Hawks woul be taking on money for the 32-year-old. That's not the plan. It's easy to see Josh Smith leaving Atlanta in free agency. It's hard to see him landing in Los Angeles in advance of it. Of course, how many times have we said something was hard to see involving the Lakers that came true in the last six months?

I don't want Josh Smith personally...

#KeepPaufor2012-2013



During this post season, if Pau doesn't show up, ship him out in the off season because someone will take his expiring I'm sure.

not only does it make perfect sense, its the fact that lakers want atlanta to throw in some extra player in the trade which makes it ridiculous. i dont see how lakers get away with raping other teams. at this point pau gasol is valuable to the lakers and nobody else.
I believe it would be to match Pau's contract so adding players is one way to do that.

You don't make this deal in November if you're ATL.

You don't deal Smoove at all in November unless you get blown away by an offer.

No idea, he's a bonehead, can't shoot and just lives off athleticism.
