    Here:

    The Lakers, who have had their season wrecked by injuries, have been considering whether to execute the trade because it would get them out of the luxury tax for the first time in seven years. More important than the $20 million in instant savings would be easing the pressure of going into the repeater tax in either 2015 or 2016, sources said. If team is in the luxury tax in four out of any five years, it triggers the repeater tax.

    The Lakers, who broke a six-game losing streak with a victory over the Jazz on Friday night, have sought more than just the cost savings from the Cavs. They have been seeking a package that would include a young player or a draft pick, which has been holding up the talks.

    It makes sense if the Lakers will just dump salary.

    But no way the Lakers will be getting the Cavs' 2014 1st round pick.

    Nobody will be trading to keep Bynum. Those interested in trading for him want to cut him and save the difference between what they gave up and the $6MM cap hit after waiving him by Tues. 

    Now, once waived, some contender may take a flyer on him but at far less than the $6MM remaining on his contract if not waived. They're big boys so if they want to take the risk of upsetting team chemistry in return for a potential turn around in time for the playoffs, GLTT.

    Why not?? Makes sense in LaLa land...Pay luxury tax, keep Bynum,(knees), wait for Kome (knee), lose Pau (back?), wait for Nash(back?)...instant title contenders...lol

    Right. Lebron is not going anywhere but if he is it will be his hometown IMO. Lakers don't have to worry about this coming years free agents, they should wait for the next few years while they are rebuilding. Dealing Pau and with the injuries in the strong west might get them a few good pics in this draft.

    Lakers only have one 1st round pick this year.

    I know so maybe with this trade they get one or two more. But who knows?

    If they thought his knees weren't an issue they probably would have kept him and moved Gasol in the first place. So you think they are rectofying their mistake and Bynum's been faking it with the Sixers and Cavs to orchestrate his way back to the Lakers?

    [/QUOTE]

    no, i'm saying the are desperate...they have limited choices since they re-signed kome..they have to go for it...Kome and Nash can't be involved in a rebuild year..

    but who is to say the Kome is even coming back this year..ever??? They are in such disarray...

    Re: Andrew Bynum off of the waivers

    I would not trade for Gasol.(Cleveland)..I would take a younger player that will fit with the rest of the young lions in Cleveland. A Deng makes more sense...They will get better with Gasol, but he has been injury prone as of late. Either way, they are not contenders so take the younger guy. Irwin might be out longer too...Gasol fits in with a contender...unless Cleveland is going to move him later..

    According to ESPN, the Pau Gasol for Andrew Bynum trade could happen on Sunday.

    http://fansided.com/2014/01/04/nba-trade-rumors-los-angeles-lakers-cooling-pau-gasol-to-cleveland-cavaliers-trade/  who knows, but me thinks Cleveland would be foolish to give any 1st rd pick..and you know Slackers are probably demanding one... Others teams will want a chance at Bynum...Nets are talking of moving Pierce now...

    No way!

     

    Lakers are not going to get a 1st round pick in a Bynum for Gasol trade.

     

    In fact, Gasol for Bynum, straight up, doesn't work.

    The Lakers would have to take back a player like Alonzo Gee.

    [/QUOTE]

    We'll just have to wait and se when/if the trade goes down. According to sources Lakers will want more than just Bynum. Not saying next years first round pick but maybe a young prospect. If not Lakers should just wait for the trading dead line or let Gasol's contract expire.

    According to the reports it's the Cavs who want to make the deal ASAP. Leverage to Lakers.

    Apparently Tards who hate the Lake Show forgot to mention that the Cavs have been after Gasol for the last two years.  So in short the Lakers have the upper hand because they can sit back until the trade deadline before they have to make a major decisions.  Enjoy! Missingteeth

    Re: Andrew Bynum off of the waivers

    Bynum needs to return to the Lakers.

    I can't see Doc Rivers putting up with his crap

    Don't want to see Bynum on my Celtics !~

     

    Celtics have a very nice core group of good guys and Mr Stevens seems to be steering the ship with poise.......Mr Stevens also seems (from my view on the outside) to have the respect of the vets, not an easy task. Bynum could unravel the whole thing. Just say no to adding this joker to the mix. Would rather see Favaroni and Olynyk both try to handle 30 minutes a night .....

    Actually the Cavs don't really lose anything if they just waive Bynum.

     

    Cavs save a little less than 6m if they waive Bynum.

    [/QUOTE]

    Well don't know why Cavs are the ones who want it to go down ASAP according to the reports.

    Any trade involving Bynum is centered around cap relief. The dude just does not like to play ball. Like Tommy said, he was just a 7 foot guy that was pretty good at Basketball but even thought this is the WEAKEST era ever for Centers, he cannot help anyone if he has no heart.

    Dan Gilbert isn't Jimmy Short Buss, He will want them to sign Pau to a multy year extension before handing over a 1st round pick. They saw whay happened to the Lakers with Dwight Howard. They aren't stupid.
