A couple of trades

1. Smoove and Hinrich for Pau Gasol, Josh Mcroberts, Steve Blake and Lakers first rounder

Originally I wanted this to be and Al and Hinrich for Pau and the lakers first rounder but that would mean the Lakers are admitting that they are tanking this season and I dont think that happening. Sooooo....I threw in Smoove and McBob.

Now I may be overestimating Pau but I think he still has a couple of years left in him and escaping from under Kobe might help him. On a side note, I would insist on both Pau and McBob. No deal if we dont get back two big men. The lakers first rounder is a sweetener for the Hawks since Pau seems like he's past his prime, Josh is younger and he's also very good bait for Dwight Howard. Steve Blake can be kept or removed from the trade based on your point of view. Hes shown that he can be a decent rotation guard but hes been crap the past two seasons so it could go either way and I dont think the Lakers would mind getting rid of the three years on his contract considering what he's given them.

2. Al Horford for Emeka Okafor +exchange first round picks hawks pick for minny pick

This is based on: a) Al may not be back in time/ be healthy enough to be a contributing member in the playoffs. and b) with one more big man we could really make some noise in the playoffs this year.

I dont know if the Hornets/Stern would agree to the pick swap but considering that we are losing the better player i think its more than fair especially since the minny pick is losing value quickly.
