The Pau Gasol rumor mill continues to churn, as reports out of Chicago Thursday were that Bulls superstar Derrick Rose recently approached team management to push for a trade involving the Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol.
"I heard about it after (Monday's) game," Rose said. "That's something I wouldn't say to anyone, that I need someone to come to this team or I'm trying to get rid of someone on this team. It was all false and that's something I would never do."
Rose and Gasol are both clients of super agent Arn Tellem, who represents 40 plus NBA players. Rose and his teammates have had a great rapport, and with a 27-8 record there doesn't seem to be much need to rock the boat:
"I'm good with the teammates I have," Rose said. "I've always been saying that. The team that I have, we've been winning games, and we're not in the position to look to trade anyone right now."
So are the Lakers who look to enter the All-Star break on a three game winning streak in Oklahoma City Thursday night.
