It's not a secret, the Blazers need a legit starting 7footer. Most of us have heard that Gasol is soft, but when he plays, the man gets the job done. He's an all star big man and one of the world's best bigs for a reason. If we could someone work a trade with his contract it centering around JJ it would benefit both teams. The Lakers need someone like Hickson along side Howard so then can run their D'antoni offense. Gasol gives us size, rebounding and not that bad of help side defense. I could imagine he'd want out of LA, not starting and getting less minutes than usual. He'd help the Blazers in my opinion. What do you all think?
