Simple as this, who is down for a Al for Marc Gasol trade?
I am! Would Memphis do it? Not sure. But I think there is a good possibility. Taking on Al would give Zack Randolph free reign in the paint and it would also open up the middle for Rudy Gay to work his magic in the lane also.
Should Atlanta do it? Of course. Gasol would be the #1 option in the post and would get more touches than if he stayed in Memphis having to share the load with Randolph. He is a decent, if not as good a defender as Al. He averaged 1.5 bpg last season.
The biggest benefit would be that Josh could be Josh. Josh will most definitely play to his offensive strengths 70% of the time. The other 30% will definitely be ill-advised jumpers. We just have to live with that. But Smoove is our best PF, our most exciting player and biggest game changer on the team
And sign Tayshaun Prince??? (Had to toss that in.)
PG - Teague, Hinrich
SG - JJ, ???
SF - Prince, Marvin
PF - Smoove
C - Gasol, Zaza, Collins
