Trading Melo to the Lakers would solve option 2. The first part of the Melo trade is what bother me. They could package Hill, Gasol, money and draft picks(If they have any worth anything).<quoted text>The problem with trying to trade Melo is two fold, 1st what you take back in matching salary, and 2nd the team that takes him have to be assured that he will sign with them, remember he is opting out. Lo.ve would be great, but you need a second piece to swayed him
As for Love and that second piece to sway him. Do you mean a good PG or another star player? I'm sure he wants to be the man and not share the spotlight.
