Why is there a lack of desire for Pau?

51

The link is to ESPN player rankings where Pau is ranked #11. I know that these rankings leave a lot to argue about, but I think it is pretty indisputable that Pau is at least a top 5 center. We do not have a player on our roster that is nearly as good as he is. Why are we not going after him when it seems like he is very available? We are willing to give up everything we have to rent Dwight for half a season, but we won't make an attempt at Pau who we would have for a couple more years. The guy at worst has some understandable emotional issues (having your fiance cheat on you with a teammate combined with trade rumors will shake anybody up). What would bring his confidence back like hearing the love at Roaracle. Skilled 7 footers who can play defense are pretty rare. Letting him go somewhere else is the Warrior (Fredo) move. For once, I want the Warriors to look smart and the Lakers to look like Shmucks, let's steal Pau like we stole Baron before We Believe.
