Lakers do this why? Gortat at center and pau at PF? Kendall Marshall hasn't show flashes of anything this season, the picks are pretty much useless...

I don't think that Suns should trade Gortat and two possible lottery picks for Brook Lopez. He is a better offensive player than Gortat but in other areas Gortat is at least as good, and Lopez's contract is almost twice bigger than Gortat's, plus he had injuries.

Brooks is a nice prospect but I'm not sure that he is worth a late lottery pick.

I would do this deal from PHO's point of view without the picks. If it takes more for the Gortat-Lopez swap, I would probably decline.

No chance we gift LA's 2 firsts back to them, when they could both very well turn out to be Lottos.
