Gasol traded to Lakers : Grizzlies : Commercial Appeal I don't get this trade. For the Lakers this is a brilliant move and turns them into an instant contender. But what do the Grizzlies really get? A useless Kwame Brown and Javaris Crittenton. That now gives them 3 talented young point guards in either their first or second season. What's the point of that? They also get a couple of first round picks, but this just reeks of tanking to me. The other Western Conference teams must be pretty mad at the Grizzlies for pretty much just giving Gasol away. I know I would be.
