Before the start of the season, there were questions about Pau Gasol’s future with the Lakers and which superstar free agent will take his talents to Los Angeles this upcoming summer.
Over the past week, there have been discussions of trading Gasol to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Andrew Bynum. While the move would save the Lakers $20 million once Bynum is waived, Los Angeles is looking for more assets and talks have stalled. With numerous teams looking to save money, the Cavaliers are currently looking for the best offer before the January 7 deadline when Bynum’s contract becomes guaranteed.
With ample cap room this upcoming summer, there have been rumors of Carmelo Anthony joining the Lakers. While he would like to remain in New York, this season’s frustrations have caused him to reconsider. According to New York Post’s Marc Berman, Anthony has the Lakers included on a short list of possible destinations.
