Pau can play some PF and some as backup C. The problem with him now is that he´s going through injuries and the kind of PF he´s been told to be in Lakers. He played this summer in the Olimpics paired with Marc Gasol and the result was good. He´s played with Bynum with quite success as well. Playing PF´s minutes he can recieve the ball at Cunningham´s spots on offense and be able not only to take the jumper but also to be a complete triple threat (as much as i like Cunningham, he´s quite limited offensively).
Having Pau and Love, or Pau and Pek playing against the reserve unit of the rival´s team is a huge advantage. You can just put balls inside and watch them work and get foul calls.
(If healthy) we´d have by far the best interior game of the league, at least two more years of cheap quality players at PG and SG positions (Rubio/Shved), a great glue guy as AK and a 6th man/3 point threat like Buddinger. I´d like our chances much more than not trying anything.
