Report: Lakers are Committed to Trading Pau Gasol This Summer

After they were bounced in the second round of this year’s NBA Playoffs, the Lakers may be looking to make some moves this summer, if only to shake up the roster and return in the fall with some fresh faces. Well according to the NY Daily News, one guy who might not be coming back to the City of Angels next autumn is Pau Gasol, who the team is reportedly attempting to shop: “The Lakers are committed to moving Pau Gasol — the fall guy for their second-round ouster against the Thunder and previous playoff failures — even if they have to take back less talent. As long as Heisley retains the Grizzlies, Memphis will always have interest. Heisley has always wanted to bring Gasol back, pairing him with his brother, Marc.”

    OJ MAYO!!!!

  • http://www.slamonline.com spit hot fiyah

    his race horse might become lonely

  • misso

    wow, pau & marc would wreak havoc

  • trh

    ……a downgrade. Need more gems

  • jose

    Marc would make up for the toughness that ppl question pau about. . . .and well pau still has a noticeably better skill set than Marc. That would be sick playing side by side, i’d tried to get Z-Bo and/or Mayo

  • I’m J.J. Redickulous

    I say try and get Rudy Gay.

  • PnoyVibe

    ^Agreed, perfect fit for the Lakers.

  • Reggie06

    Noo trade bynum lazy ass

  • Well DAMN


  • Jono

    Gay for Gasol would be great for LA, no way it’s gonna happen though.

    Grizz are not trading Gay away for Pau..

  • Wet

    Memphis would be dumb to trade gay for Gasol. Z bo would have to be include, and probably mayo.

  • 2Quick

    Get OJ Mayo & Z-BO or pick up Michael Beasley i think he’s gonna be a free agent

  • Basketball iQ

    Gay to the Lakers would be perfect for them but Pau to the Griz would be a log jam at the 4. Maybe Artest and Pau for Gay & Z-Bo … the Lakers would be a halfcourt juggernaut,,, add a SteveNash maybe… hey,who knows? Memphis would be the best defensive team in the league hands down. I like that trade for both…its good for the league

  • Guest

    man i dont know if anyone in LA would even think about wearing a “GAY” Lakers jersey lol… were asking for it from the Haters if we get Rudy…

  • tomtom

    With Sasha – 2 chips. Without – 2 second round exits. We need the machine, no but seriously…

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rwDluFZQmtQ Max

    Without Mbenga the Lakers have been worth nothing.

    I really enjoy reading dumb hypothetical trade scenarios

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Haha I know they’re dumb, still fun to come up with, though.

  • http://waterpolo.simmis.fi Lawrence York

    I like the way you are thinking Caboose! Fun scenarios

  • http://www.google.com/news BETCATS

    If they were smart, they’d bring in a new center and power forward and allow Andrew Bynum to play his natural role as a 3 point shooting small forward.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    ^And let Kobe play point guard so he’s guaranteed to have the ball on every possession.

  • Heals

    Mos def Caboose it’s always fun to play around with during the offseason, I just think Scola and Lowry makes too much sense for them…

  • http://www.yahoo.com The Fury

    @Caboose…nahh, Spurs won’t give away Kawhi for sure. Dude is Spurs for Life written all over him .

  • PnoyVibe

    Go 3 for 2 and trade Gasol, Barnes and Blake for Rudy Gay and OJ Mayo

  • bdogg

    rudy and a draft pick..i want to uptempo the office. i do not care what brown things..i want showtime back and kb can still run!!!

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Because Rudy Gay will bring Showtime back to the Lakers.

    @Caboose i think you would love this link… click my name, i use it when im bored and the senerios are decent and fairly accurate

  • bonk

    @ caboose it sounds like ur a la fan cuz all those trades benefit the lakers. But I like scheming trades wit my boys 2. Jus keep my magic in thoughts wit better trade scenarios cuz were not giving Howard up for almost nothing.

  • joshuasymons

    Pau Gasol & Matt Barnes & Steve Blake for Josh Smith & Kirk Hinrich & Marvin Williams


    Pau Gasol & Ramon Sessions & 2012 1st pick for mike conley & zach randolph

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Bonk, I’m a Magic fan actually. Both of those Magic deals work out pretty well for us, I think.

  • RunNGun

    Pau Gasol to Memphis, Chicago, or Minnesota would be intriguing.

  • JML-G

    Grizzlies would be retarded to trade Randolph for Pau, period

  • http://www.thesmashbrothas.com zen garden

    pau an jordan for josh smith

  • SwaGG_SeaN

    @Caboose: Those are some very good scenarios; I like the one with Ramon Sessions and Pau Gasol for OJ Mayo and Zack Rondolp

  • B>SwaGG_SeaN
