I don't even know why this deal is even discussed. If I am the Lakers, I'd keep Pau. He's probably the most versatile big man in the league and def most skilled. People gripe about his age. He's only 32. Not like he's 36 or 38. The guy still plays at a high level and his numbers are down because of Dwight Howard and Bynum over the years forcing him further away from the basket in the post. And you see him settle for more jumpers now than before even though he is a great jump shooter. He's just less likely to post up when he's further away from the basket. Less aggressive.

Why do people want Josh Smith? I feel he is overrated
cp3, westbrook, t parker. lakers need to defend the pick and roll. dwight already got the interior on lock. he and dwight togther would be nasty imo

edit: not saying pau aint a better player. smith just may be a better fit defensively for this slow a.ss team.

The only J-SMoove move would be for a Center to slide Al to his natural PF position...Josh just gonna walk out of ATL and straight to Philly like he did 3 years ago when he was restricted but ATL matched the offer....

Not even sure LA should attempt that trade anyway, cuz I don't think Josh Smith a better fit for LA.

Don't get me wrong, I like Smith, and at this point, he's a much better player than Gasol. But...

1) You can't make Josh Smith grow. He's like 6'7 in socks. Gasol is a 7th footer. Not many teams can match the Lakers backcourt in terms of size and skill.

2) Josh Smith can often be a low basketball IQ knucklehead and display an array of antics, bad body language and pouting. Not exactly what you want around Dwight or just in general.

3) Also, can you get Josh to understand he needs to stop popping a thousand jumpers and that on that team he's got to be a 12/10 guy?

He's a guy that wants and almost needs a decent role in the offense or he's likely to become moody, yet in general he is often very inefficient and can really fu*k up an offense.

You don't get that problem with Gasol.

No. We don't even know how effective Pau is under D'Antoni yet.

To Toronto: Pau Gasol
To Atlanta: Andrea Bargnani
To LA: Josh Smith

And whatever contracts are needed to make it work. Makes sense to me...

Dwight & Josh been cool since AAU and have spoken publicly about wanting to play together in the NBA...I see this eeetrade happening, Josh brings youth, hella athleticism, and I say A better fit for a D'antoni led offense because he can spread the floor a lil more than Pau... Lakers , pull the trigger on this

I work a deal for Smith without Gasol if I'm LA

Gasol is too slow to be a 4 now and will hurt the Lakers in the playoffs

Hawks make money off the deal thru the tax system

Just how would LA be able to resign both Josh Smith and Dwight Howard though?

Also, if it did happen would Josh Smith basically fill that Amare Stat, type of role they had in PHX? From the games I've seen of Josh Smith, hes a better defender than Amare ever was, but his shooting is kind of really poor.

But in reality if you move, Gasol it'd open up space but our strength is our size, also Pau is underrated with his passing skills, it'd be a loss to lose him too. But if we got a bench out of the deal it'd be worth it. Have them throw in Anthony Morrow & Josh Smith for Pau and say Duhon or etc, and it'd be decent.

I thought they changed the rules about resigning players once they were traded so teams couldn't get star players to play for the team they wanted to.

Maybe Im wrong.

Only way the Lakers make this trade is if its a three-way trade sending Metta World Peace, Blake & Duhon for J-Smoove
