Pau GasolIt is well-known that the Los Angeles Lakers are desperately searching for a point guard and the Boston Celtics seem to be stuck in rut, but is removing Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo from the equation the right answer?

Rumor has it the Boston Celtics are on the verge of trading Rajon Rondo and if an NBA team is going to re-build they have to start with their most valuable piece, which is Rondo.

The problem is the Celtics shouldn’t be looking to re-build they should be looking to re-tool and get back on top.

For the Lakers, Rondo would be the ideal point guard and has the approval of star Kobe Bryant based on his work ethic.

The Lakers would take over his three-year contract and in return they would obtain a top five point guard, who can pass and create opportunity for Kobe and Andrew Bynum.

The Celtics would obtain Pau Gasol’s two-year contract a $19 million per season and Danny Ainge will still have the cap space created by the expiring contracts of Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and others.

The immediate concern for the Lakers is the known health problems of Andrew Bynum. Let’s face it, as much as Lakers fans have turned on Gasol it was his presence along with Kobe Bryant’s that won two NBA Championships.

If the Lakers are going to trade Gasol the health of Bynum must be a thing of the past or the they are right back to where they were without Gasol.

If this trade were to go through it would mean a number of things for each team as Dwight Howard stated that if he were to be a member of the Lakers he would want to play with him, not traded for him.

Could this open up a possibility of Gasol going to the Celtics and then during the summer the addition of Howard to Boston?
