    Why a Millsap-Gasol trade doesn't work

    Jazz don't want to gut their team for an overpaid oft injured guy in his 30s when they already have 4 starting caliber players at that position already.

    Lakers would presumably rather trade him out of the conference if possible.

    for starters, i hate the "wrong side of 30" argument. there is no wrong side of 30. some of the all-time greats needed until their 30s to really understand the game and put all the pieces together -- that was true of jordan, true of dream, certainly true of our franchise's best two guys.

    so the argument against pau isn't that he's 32 - the argument against him is that he is 32 with two bad knees and a bad back.
    check out the jazzbros.com blog for more on the jazz.

    Wow.

    I actually agree with everyone here.

    WTF is this article? How stupid do they think the Jazz are?

    Maybe like what Franklin was saying, and throw in MKG, but even then, it still feels like we gave up too much. Plus pairing up and old Gasol with a very young MKG and Favors doesnt really do us any good. We would still be waiting on Favors and MKG to develop.

    But MKG wasnt even suggested.

    This trade idea is possibly the worst I have ever heard.

    Thats true. Good point. My comment about Gasol being old kind of hinged on his injuries.

    Pretty much what you said is true.

    ESPN really does believe we are just a bunch of stupid hicks.

    Why not just trade Jeffy and Paul to LA for Gasol and a pick?

    Gasol is a top 5 center. He may be the best big in the league. I think he'd love it here too being the focal point of our team. If we have a realistic chance at trading for Paul I hope we take it.

    But no way in hell I give up Favors or Kanter to get him.

    Would do it for Jefferson and maybe Millsap if sweetened enough. Seeing Duncan perform so well at 36, its tempting to get Gasol if he would have 4 strong years left. Jefferson has taught Kanter and Favors the low post game. Gasol could teach them high post and pick and rolls.

    Didn't he force his way out of Memphis because he DIDN'T want to be the focal point there?

    Yeah we're totally going to hand Millsap to the Lakers. "So Lakers, rock bottom? Over the cap? Need a mid-range power forward to play with Howard? Well here's Paul Millsap! All we ask for in return is Gasol and the ability to trade Kanter to the Bobcats."
