    I wonder if they would do a swap, Price for McBob, since he's not getting a lot of playing time there. If Memphis is still interested in him, it may be an opportunity to make another run at OJ Mayo with a three team trade.
    so West,Hans,McBob? I don't see that being a problem at all

    Definitely hold out for a first. A second does nothing for us.

    Then, you have a lot of options. Use the pick to sweeten the offer for Rondo. Use our first to obtain Kaman. Use the extra first to move up in the draft or just go in with two firsts in a deep draft.

    It's completely unbelievable to get a 1st, no matter how late it is, for AJ. The Lakers need a PG, but they don't need one THAT bad, they have guys on the roster than can play the position. Morris specifically, who it makes no sense they don't at least give a trial run.

    If you think that's what we should hold out for, that's fine, I don't entirely disagree. I just don't think it's at all realistic a proposal.

    Realistically in Indy, Aj is a backup to the backup PG, we already have a decent amount of depth there, if you can turn that into a 2nd round pick you might as well do it.

    What we really need is another SF.

    AJ and our 2nd for Devin Ebanks would not be too bad in my opinion.

    Yeah at this point anyone who thinks we can get a 1st for AJ Price is delusional, someone hears a team is interested in a player at automatically assumes the team would be willing to give up a 1st for that player.

    Lakers are trying to do 2 things, add another point and save money, AJ fits both of those needs but not so much so they would give up a 1st overall. Only way we would get a first is if we took the contract of Luck Walton or something...

    I totally agree! He's not worth a first, but he's worth more than a second. Basically saying, "We're not moving him unless it's a great deal for us."

    If AJ could carve out a role in LA with the Lakers then why would we even consider trading him for a 2nd round pick... and I'd have to think long and hard about trading for a late first round pick.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    What does he really offer us unless someone gets hurt, his last game against GS he shot 3 3pt shots, made 1, 4 reb, 1 stl, 3 points, 2 turnovers... this was in 12 minutes. He is not really a defensive presence and with George Hill getting back healthy his minutes are just going to keep decreasing.

    I say trade AJ for Darius or for a pick.

    Sign Arenas on our own. Guy has something to prove and the Pacers could really use him. He'd probably sign for cheap and you don't have to give up anything for him.

    That's completely true. However, it wouldn't make sense for us to trade him for a 2nd.

    That's why I don't think that this deal will fall through even if the article is correct about Lakers interest in AJ.

    Who trades a first round pick for a average back up. I think the thing they like about him is that he has some Derek Fisher in him, meaning you can kick it out to him and he should hit open 3's, What he does once he gets traded is really irrelevant to the actual trade. What has he shown so far that would make you think he deserves to be traded for a 1st, even a late.

    Better yet show me some trades where a person of AJ Price was traded for a 1st round pick?

    Right, and I'm fine with that point of view, I don't disagree. I'm just saying I can't see AJ being on the team next year, and I don't think he makes much of a difference at all this year, so if it nets a future asset then cool. But it'd be such a minor asset then I'd be fine w/o doing it just the same.

    Hey,

    Just wanted to add this..

    Lakers traded their 2nd round pick to Dallas, and only have the 2nd of the Bulls.

    Which will most likely be the last pick of the draft.

    In this case I would say not to trade it unless it was a future 2nd.

    Let's trade a solid backup who isn't a problem in the locker room to the Lakers for a second round pick who might not end up being anything!

    He keeps the second unit's offense flowing. And while he is not a great defender he is capable of holding his own. In general, he has been quite efficient as of late.

    You cannot get that out of a second round pick at the moment.

    Agree. May as well just forego the 2nd round pick and take McBob.

    I wasn't really thinking about George Hill, but even with the increased depth with his return, AJ is a guy who can come in and nail some shots and keep the offense going. We know what we have in him, why trade him for a second round pick whom might never even play for us?

    I guess a lot of you guys are closet Lakers fans....

    As I said no one. But we're not looking it from the Lakers perspective. Nor do we say that he is worth it.

    We're just saying that it is not worth it if it's just a 2nd round pick. If they were to add an international prospect I could talk about it. But I'm not too excited about Elonu either.

    Now, if this was the Spurs and we were talking about their international prospects (De Colo, Richards, Hanga) I could see me doing this.

    For a 1st in a deep draft it could be a steal.

    AJ has been really useful to us this season and it would be almost stupid to trade him for almost nothing.

    Why can't you get that out of a 2nd round pick, that is what they are there for... He was a 2nd round pick himself.

    What is the point of looking at as of late, over the season his numbers have been horrible even when he got in the games. The only reason he is doing anything right now to help the team is because of the Hill situation, and after that he will go back to getting less than 15 minutes a game.

    Unless we are planning on using him more, which would not make sense if Hill is healthy then he can only have so much affect on our team.

    After a slow start where he got very little minutes, he's averaged 8.1 points, 2.2 assists and shot 47% from the field and 33% from three in the last 10 games where he only played an average of 17.1 minutes. No those stats don't blow you away, but they're solid back up numbers and he seems to be a nice presence on the bench and the locker room. I don't see where a middle second round pick brings you more than that.

    Now there are plenty of players and picks I would trade him for, but as far as the Lakers are concerned, we could talk players like Blake and Ebanks, but not a second rounder.

    I just don't see this being true, but if we want to run with this, it goes something like this.

    Pacers receive: OJ Mayo

    Memphis receives: Josh McRoberts

    Lakers receive: Dahntay Jones and AJ Price

    Of course there would be some picks thrown around in there, but that is the basis to make sense for everyone, assuming they do have interest in AJ.
    I was ready for Josh Smith to go to Indiana, but he went to the NBA. I am ready for him to come to Indiana once again.
