Pretty fair to me, Bucks don't use Sammy D for sh*t and if they put Pau in the post that makes them a top 4 team in the East and may I say contenders?

Lakers:
Nash
Kobe
Metta
Ilyasova
Dwight/Dalembert

Bucks:
Jennings
Ellis
Daniels
Gasol
Sanders

They just need overall depth. Jordan Hill is out so there goes a dependable backup big man, they aren't getting any good PG play from anyone besides Nash, and the only true 3 point shooter on the team is Meeks.... so they need a little bit of everything. So yeah... overall depth.

Just keep him imo. We've waited too long to be able to get any actual good deals with him, and dealing him could cause more chemistry problems cause the new guys would have to fit in. We can't afford any more chemistry problems or our season is over. Let's just hope we can find a way to get him playing good in this system, and if he still plays like crap, oh well he's expiring in 2014 we'll have like 20m freed up with him gone.

They trade him for young athletic players... for more depth. That's what's most useful for D'antoni's system.

I'm going with three point shooters, but that doesn't tell the whole story.
Preferably three point shooters who are actually consistent and can do some ballhandling and scoring on their own. Obviously Kobe and Nash aren't the answer to the Lakers' future. That is on Dwight Howard. Where is Dwight Howard most effective? Dominating the paint where the other team has to pick their poison, either let Dwight take you 1v1 in the post/off of pick and rolls or throw a few guys at Dwight and let the shooters take care of the rest. At this point, the Lakers aren't getting much for Gasol. However, if you can surround Dwight with deadeye shooters WHO CAN CREATE FOR THEMSELVES, he'll be very effective. Like the 09 Magic who went to the Finals. You still have Kobe around for a few years taking over scoring when needed (something that Magic team didn't have), but they need to find some players who can take that scoring load when Kobe is gone.

Assuming Dwight gets healthy and is able to dominate like he used to. I still have faith in that old Orlando offense, just buff it up a little.

I would trade Pau for a pair of young athletic 3pt shooters and a backup PF to increase the team's depth. The bench is absolutely terrible and I'm sure you could move Pau for a couple players that would end up making a larger impact then what he would. The team is finally starting to look better (even if it was against two bad teams).

What is going to happen: most likely nothing.

Keep him this season. It's not like we're going to win a championship this year anyways, and next season with D'Antoni and a training camp, see where it goes. Then MAYBE explore trade options. That's what I'd do if I were the Lakers management.

if he had to go, then I'd work on Depth
