NBA Trade Rumors: Los Angeles Lakers unlikely to find deal for Pau Gasol


For the past few years, it seems that Los Angeles Lakers star Pau Gasol has seen his name come up in trade rumors on an annual basis. It’s almost a tradition at this point to have the Lakers shop him, seemingly find a deal and then not have a single thing happen.

In the last three years Gasol has been supposedly going to be traded to the New Orleans Hornets, Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers with the Phoenix Suns being the latest team to be close to acquiring him. But according to Sam Amico from FOX Sports, the Lakers are unlikely to find a deal for Gasol — again.

And most everyone seems to think the Lakers won’t be able to reach a deal involving Pau Gasol.

He goes on to say that no one can predict the deadline, which is true, but Amico seems confident enough to report that Gasol likely won’t be moving. A lot can happen and the Lakers may lower the cost of Gasol, but it appears that we may have been given the annual Gasol trade rumors runaround by Los Angeles.

    Not trading Gasol is just adding to the screw up’s of the past. They tried the “old” man stuff with Malone/mouth & it didn’t work, they brought in an old crippled Nash, didn’t work, they lost Bynum for nothing, they lost D12 for nothing, now they will loseGasol for nothing…. Not sure why on earth has to happen in order for the “WHOLE” BUSS FAMILY TO FINALY UNDERSTAND THAT THE “PRESENT”FRONT OFFICE IS ‘totally, completely worthless>……(They hire Brown, they hire this hiight school coach, they DON’T hire Phil & so on, can’t anyone be honest enough to say that the $1,000,000,000 plus asset is being destroyed by what is ‘NOT HAPPENING” in the front office ??? Cn’t anyone see how screwed up the team’s front office is & how it will destroy hundreds of millions in value as swell as destroy the massive fn base ??? Buss family you had bester “ACT” or your 2nd most valuable team in the NBA will look more like the Cav’s or BobCats then it does the FORMER Lakers. !!!!

      I agreed many of us believe the same thing, let Steve Nash go, and the coach, everyone in the world know this! I love my Lakers and I will be there til the end but for most had jump to the clippers so we must clean house starting in the front office.
