Two NBA analysts have PP going to the Lakers. They do like him and need him for the playoffs. Lakers also have the chips to do the ridiculous deal I have included in the post....would this be a three team deal with Laker's chips coming to Boston only to be traded for "someone" else?
Lakers are desperate enough to trade Odom why not Gasol? Ainge would listen to this deal, but, does he flip Gasol? Danny's only goal is to get a top ten or top 5 player..eventually. Do Pierce and Rondo get the Lakers minus Gasol back to the finals? Do the Lakers care? They are getting old and are facing a wide open western conf. Can Danny get a superstar out of this deal?
http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine could not get link to work, but, trade passed $ test.
PP+Rondo to Lakers for Gasol + Blake + Barnes + Number 1'(s).
Gasol staying in Boston would mean they need another "top player." I don't think a Lakers deal would lead to anything more than Picks and players whom would be eventually traded for the superstar the Celtics need. Danny will be happy to "limp along" with Bradley at point.
As far as long shots go, this deal isn't any crazier than anything else I've seen this week.
