08:12 AM ET 11.27 | The Big Four makes for a crowd in Los Angeles. [Kobe Bryant] isn't going anywhere, Dwight Howard isn't going anywhere (they hope), and Steve Nash, once he's healthy, isn't going anywhere because he's the one to run Mike D'Antoni's offense. That makes Pau Gasol the presumed odd man out, given his weighty contract and declining stats. He makes $19 million this season and, the big blow, $19.3 million next season, when luxury taxes increase dramatically. ... The Lakers aren't actively looking to trade Gasol right now, The Times has learned, because they want to see what happens when Nash returns from a small fracture in his leg. After that, there are two important dates: Dec. 15 is when teams can deal players they signed during the off-season ... and Feb. 21.

Send him to New Orleans for a 1st round pick. Oh that's right, the NBA nixed that a year a go. Never mind.

QUOTE(#6):

I have a gut feeling Lakers go after Al Jefferson, Cousins or J-Smith before Amare.... Amare just isnt durable anymore.

but why Jefferson or Cousins?
