I mentioned this is another thread when I first heard this story. I think it would require us trading Hayward for someone like John Collins. This would open up a starting role for Gallinari while also allowing us to use the full MLE.
Of course there are options other than Collinsí absurdly low contract for next season, but ATL can absorb Hayward into their cap space and Iíve always liked Collins.
Imo- a Hayward for Collins/Gallinari swap would make us a better team. Unfortunately, Roy is probably right, otherwise. The Lakers = Gallinariís best path to a championship- as evidenced by them just winning a championship.
