If the Lakers are actually interested in Michael Beasley

What is the consensus regarding this trade idea:

Wolves receive Kevin Martin

Lakers receive Luis Scola, Jonny Flynn, Michael Beasley, and Wesley Johnson

Rockets receive Pau Gasol

The Wolves get a perfect offensive complement to Kevin Love for the next few seasons, and only give away players that haven't found their fit here in Minnesota.

The Rockets get a player that gives them an identity they have lacked for a long time, and only give away players they were previously willing to part with to get Gasol.

The Lakers get a group of young players that represent a talent upgrade over the current bunch of stiffs numbered 4-12 on their roster, and only give away a player whose value to them has been greatly diminished by their coaching change this season - in Brown's system Scola will be 95% as effective as Gasol.

If the Lakers decide they want Goran Dragic instead of Flynn, he's interchangeable. If the Lakers would prefer Courtney Lee instead of Johnson, then Johnson can land in Houston with Lee going to LA.

Which team would hold up this deal? And is there anything better the Wolves could realistically get from Beasley and Johnson?
