Doesn't work for finances.  To make the money work and stay under the hard cap, Raps have to send out something like JV + two of BeBe/Poeltl/Bruno, who all make a decent chunk of change even in their rookie scale deals.  I'd imagine that MEM would insist on Poeltl, plus that 2nd rounder.  The other player is likely just ballast.


I would be okay with JV, BeBe and second rounder tbh

If I'm not mistaking the only 1st rounder we can trade is 2020 and im not ok with that ( we could be trash by then). To be honest im not ok of sacrificing any future for a 32 year old Gasol to begin with.

He still has about 3-4 prime years left. Plus he can shoot the ball which can extend a players playing years.

Again, though.  Its has to be JV, then TWO of BeBe, Poeltl, Bruno, to make the money work.  Plus picks, but we don't have many to offer.

Pretty sure it's 2019 that we can trade. We can't trade the 2018 pick since we moved one of our 2017 1st round picks. Or is that wrong because the pick we moved was the Clippers pick? I think we kept our pick this summer, no?

My bad, we moved our 2018 first in the Carroll trade I believe, so yeah 2020

As a note, even if we moved our 2017 pick, we could have moved our 2018 pick, because the rule about consecutive picks only applies to future picks.  Once the pick is past, the next pick is free to trade.  That's why we can't trade our 2019 right now, but next summer we can (because the traded 2018 pick will no longer be a "future" pick).
