at the time of his signing, just about everyone saw Mayo as a questionable 3pt shooter who was very much not a PG, hardly played defense and may or may not have had a bad attitude. I may be over simplifying this, but boy was a chucker with question marks.

5. Pau Gasol, Lakers
Contract: $19M this season, $19.3M in 2013-14

The deal: Trade Machine


Gasol
The Lakers simply don't have any options left to salvage their season. Yes, the price tag on a 32-year-old injured center with $38 million remaining on his contract might be only slightly north of "free," but this is their only hope at this point. That is, if we truly believe that Dwight Howard is off the market.

The smart thing for the Lakers might be to just ride it out and re-evaluate in the offseason, but if they want to get something for Gasol, time is running out. Minnesota could be an intriguing trade partner if the Lakers are willing to absorb Brandon Roy to get Derrick Williams -- not to mention it would make Ricky Rubio and Gasol NBA teammates at last.

my god why am i an insider? definitely not resubbing...their writers are absolute hacks and seemingly know absolutely NOTHING about the nba. yeah cause brandon roy's remaining probably 2.5 million is gonna give the lakers HUGE reservations about shipping out injured, old 30+ million earning pau gasol SMFH :nonono: .

Roy's contract was 2 years 10 million. OJ Mayo's was 2 years $8.5 million

Mayo wasn't initially asking for that. Like I said, he was looking for 8-10m a year.

Darren Wolfson ‏@DarrenWolfson

I'm sure Kahn is talking trade w/ lots of teams, but one for sure according to two league people: the #Knicks. Not sure of any particulars.


Darren Wolfson ‏@DarrenWolfson

That's who I think. #Twolves made him an offer in the summer. He chose NY instead. RT ‏@SportingGoose @DarrenWolfson Ronnie Brewer possibly?

I wouldn't be overly excited about either Brewer or Shumpert right now. So far this year, they both have fewer points than field goal attempts, and neither has gotten to the line at a very good rate. Shumpert, at least, has been making his 3s (41% with nearly half of his attempts being 3s), but he's been bad inside the 3 point line 33.8 FG%. He's got the ACL excuse like Rubio does, though. Brewer, on the other hand, has no excuse for his 36.8 FG% and 31 3pt% (again, almost half of his attempts have been 3s), and he has even less of an excuse for shooting 41% from the free throw line.

I wouldn't say no to either as long as they come relatively cheap (Stiemsma or Ridnour) since they'd both help our D quite a bit, but neither will help our poor shooting, which is the team's biggest problem right now.

I would guess it is a simple Amundson for Brewer swap.

Why would you want Ronnie? He clearly doesn't want to be here, to the point that he left a sizable sum of money on the table.

Amundson's already been released.


Also, I don't remember, but could we have even gone after Mayo this offseason? I thought he signed while we were still in pursuit of Batum and thus had all of our cap space tied up. Roy was only signed after that was all cleared up and Mayo was no longer available (again fuzzy on this, so I could easily be wrong).

Edit:

I really don't get this, either. It would make sense if Brewer was tearing it up in New York but not getting any playing time due to all their other talent on the wings, but he hasn't been tearing it up. He's been playing like crap.

Totally forgot he got released, man I have gone full tank mode. Have not even paid attention lately.

Well here is to hoping we make a move for Shumpert.

Brewer would certainly be an upgrade defensively as he could help AK in guarding the wings but offensively he's atrocious and just adds to the team's misery

If the Knicks aren't going to give up Shumpert for Dudley, there's nothing on the Wolves roster they are going to trade him for

exactly. before the acl tear shumpert was looking like he could be a top 5 perimeter defender and a pretty good slasher. don't think new york has lost sight of that in his come back from a major injury.

Guard Brandon Roy's financial advisor is still rejecting overtures on a buyout, which seems to be the Wolves' preference over a trade.

Center Nikola Pekovic's camp has been given verbal assurances he isn't going anywhere, for now.

Forward Derrick Williams is available, but a trade seems more likely this summer.

Scoop central

• The Wolves still have no interest in Atlanta hybrid forward Josh Smith.

• If the current standings hold, the Wolves will have two first-round picks in June's draft, according to president of operations David Kahn. Clearing up confusion on the pick the Wolves will eventually give Phoenix to complete the Wesley Johnson trade, Kahn said via email it won't come this year because of certain protection based on the Wolves missing the playoffs and Memphis making it. So, the Wolves will have their pick and the pick acquired from Memphis in a 2011 trade. The Wolves' pick is top 13-protected once again in 2014.

• Big man Chris Johnson is under contract for next year, according to a source. The Wolves have decided not to announce it. It's likely that the deal is non-guaranteed at the minimum.

• Ex-Suns assistant coach Elston Turner is back home in Houston. He has spoken with his good friend, Wolves coach Rick Adelman. It's very possible Turner joins the Wolves' staff in the summer.

• For those laughing at the Wolves' idea to give anyone who renewed their season tickets or purchased a new season-ticket package for next season a 10% discount if the team failed to make the playoffs, know this: the plan was created before the season started.

Alexander Chernykh ‏@chernykh

Andrei Kirilenko told Sport-Express he felt like this injury could be a rather serious one. Medical tests are scheduled for today.

Not good if he feels it could be something serious. Hopefully it's nothing terribly bad.
