Report: Lakers are Committed to Trading Pau Gasol This Summer

by June 17, 2012

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.”
