Pau Gasol of the Los Angeles Lakers will pop up in about a trade rumor every day or so. It's the nature of the universe that his name is brought up--even though he's heading toward the downside of a successful NBA career, he's still one of the best offensive weapons out there and has great skill. The Lakers probably need to improve a bit though, and he's the player that is the one that other teams should be interested in obtaining.
The New York Daily News files this latest trade rumor that would involve Gasol's first team in the NBA, the Memphis Grizzlies.
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.
This could be a tough deal for the Lakers to pull off, and it might not really work for anyone.
