Gasol is a good big man, but isn't he more of a post up type guy? The Suns do need and have needed some bulk down low. They are weak there. But not sure if Shaq has much left in the tank. They have to make the finals for this trade to make sense. http://www.choicearizona.com

Actually one of the reasons the Grizzlies got Milicic in the off-season was to put him at center and free up Gasol to play more face to the basket. Gasol is more effective when he has the option to face up or drive and dish. The triangle does not need an effective post up scorer to be effective.
Gasol is a triple-threat guy - shoot pass rebound. He also commands double teams. He is the answer to Kobe Bryant's dreams, Lammar Odom's too!
Fisher, Bryant, Bynum, Odom, Gasol, Walton etc...
THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD LINEUP!
I'm not a Laker guy, but they just became a legit contender.
