Yea...that's not gonna happen. Those radio fools must be on a bad batch of heroin.

I think what I saw was Pau for Emeka Okafor.
Some news...

The Los Angeles Lakers are seeking a better first round pick in exchange for Pau Gasol than what the Phoenix Suns are currently offering.

Based on current projections, the Suns have their own pick (23rd overall) and the Indiana Pacers' pick (30th overall).

The Suns also hold first round picks that belong to the Washington Wizards and Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wizards' pick is top-12 protected, so the Suns own it at this point (17th overall). The Wolves' pick is top-13 protected.

The Lakers could still complete a trade with the Suns, but they plan on fielding offers from other teams.

Supposedly, Phoenix is waiting to see how Pau recovers from this groin injury before going further in talks...

Nash to start tonight and play 6-8 minutes a half. He hasn't played since Nov 10th. Over/Under on how many games he plays before getting hurt again? I'd say .5 is where I'd set the line.

I don't understand how the Lakers think he's worth so much right now at this stage of his career. I wouldn't give them anything more than a 2nd round pick and a role player for him.

$18 million coming off the books after this year. That's where the value is.

The talks never were for Bledsoe, but the Lakers are looking for a non-lottery #1 pick for him. He put up 21/12 in January, and Phoenix has the rights to 4 picks in this upcoming draft, as well as a bunch of young players on the roster. They're currently slated to draft #23 and they own Indiana's pick (#30) as well. I don't think giving up one of those picks is unreasonable for a guy who'd provide them an inside scorer that they don't currently have.

2nd half of the next game so 1.5 for me

I'd definitely trade a late 1st rounder for Pau if I'm Suns GM.

Hell...I'd give Miami's 1st, 'Shard Lewis, Roger Mason, James Jones (all expiring) for Kaman and Meeks. This will Bosh at PF full time and Meeks can start when Wade is taking a game off or two.

Haven't seen Lakers play too much....so I'm not sure if Kaman and Meeks can play defense. Rumors suggest that Miami is looking for a SG who can play some D and spread the floor. Maybe someone can chime in about their defense
Meeks leaves with an ankle injury a minute into the game. lol

Meek's D? The effort is there.

His injury tonight notwithstanding, Meeks would make sense for Miami. He's not a lockdown defender, but as GO said, the effort is there and he's decent on that end. Plays very, very hard. He'd fit the description of what Miami is looking for, but the earliest 1st rounder that Miami could trade is in the 2017 draft since Cleveland owns their 2015 pick.
