S&G Trade Scenario for Pau Gasol

Since news in LaLa Land has reported that the Lakers are still shopping Pau Gasol I came up with a trade scenario that could improve the Hawks and also help the Lakers.


Here is the scenario:

Hawks receive: Pau Gasol

Lakers receive: Josh Smith, Kirk Hinrich

Josh is an outstanding player and I think he is the main reason the Hawks are semi relevant team, but I also believe the Hawks have to start taking some chances with trades. I think the Hawks have grown as much as they possibly can from within, it is now time to make moves to grow even more. This would also allow Horford to play his natural 4 position when he returns and would also cut about 2 mil from the payroll.

Lineup:

Jeff Teague, Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, Pau Gasol, Zaza Pachulia; Pargo, Green, McGrady, VladRad, Ivan

When/if Al returns for playoffs:

Teague, Johnson, Williams, Horford, Gasol; Pargo, Green, McGrady, Vlad, Zaza
