A Pau for J. Smith trade does make sense for D'Antoni's system even though I wished the idiotic Jim Buss would have brought Phil Jackson back to utilize the players at hand but to bring in West who can't keep his off the court problems under control and Martin who is on the downside of his career is just adding more problems to a team that needs answers.

D'Antoni needs to adjust his own coaching and use the incredible talent he's got but I personally don't think he can or will because he's just not Laker quality as he proved already in NY and the meltdown that happened there.
