Lakers Offered Pau Gasol For Kevin Love, Per Report

According to the New York Post's Peter Vecsey the Los Angeles Lakers reportedly offered to give up big man Pau Gasol in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves for their All-Star big man Kevin Love after their attempts at Chris Paul fell flat on their face.

Sources say the Lakers offered Pau Gasol to the T'Wolves for Kevin Love after the league canceled the Chris Paul trade. Wouldn't you?

Yes I probably would, because if you pair up two guys like Kevin Love and Andrew Bynum on any given night, the opposing team may not get a single rebound the entire evening, not to mention the addition Love's range as a shooter behind the arc, something Pau almost never does.

Still, the Lake Show have rattled off four straight wins and eight of their last ten, so they seem to be OK with out the Love.
