Lakers News: Pau Gasol Hasn’t Received Any Clarity On Trade Rumors

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Over the past few days, the main topic of discussion surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers has been the trade rumor involving Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. Gasol being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Bynum appeared to be a done deal late on Saturday night, but then reports of the deal being done were denied by the Lakers.

Although the trade hit a snag or fell through at some point on Saturday, many expected the trade to be finalized on Sunday before the game against the Denver Nuggets. That didn’t end up happening and now uncertainty looms with Gasol still having no idea if he’s played his last game with the Lakers.

Following the loss to the Nuggets, Gasol talked to the media and let it be known that he’s received no clarity on the situation via Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

With the Lakers and Cavs apparently heading back into trade talks on Monday, a deal to send Gasol to Cleveland is still in the works. Other teams have reportedly expressed interest, but the Jazz have been the only team publicly linked with Utah offering Richard Jefferson for Bynum.

Regardless of which team acquiring Bynum, the veteran center will be immediately waived. Bynum has reportedly expressed interest in signing with the Los Angeles Clippers or Miami Heat once a free agent after the dust settles.

As for Gasol, the two-time NBA champion may be nothing more than a half-season rental for the Cavs. Gasol has considered the idea of returning to the Memphis Grizzlies in the off-season to play alongside Marc Gasol on his former team to finish his NBA career. Although Gasol may ultimately end up back in Memphis, his immediate future is uncertain to say the least.

    Well, if Cavs aren’t going to budge on their offer, Lakers shouldn’t do the deal. Might as well keep Gasol. At least, he’s a double-double guy. Dan Gilbert thinks he can get Gasol for nothing, screw him!

    Dan Gilbert is one greedy b**tard. He can keep his first round pick or young player and soon he’ll realize Kyrie is gonna leave them once his contract expires. Who want to play for a team who keep tanking every year in order to get top pick? No wonder LeBron left, soon Kyrie will follow. Karma is a b*tch Dan Gilbert after what you’ve done to Lakers with CP3 trade.

    Lakers really have done a shitty job witg their players. Treat them like garbage.

    • Jim213

      One post that I agree with you and though this is business foremost FO should’ve been upfront with Pau from the start. Have to commend Pau for his professionalism given that aside of this being a yearly thing he still manages to put up consistent numbers though not as good as in the past.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Lakers are best off trading Pau Gasol for assets not Dan Gilbert garbage.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Yeap the Lakers need to make the right decision with Pau.Thank you Pau.

  • LakeShow

    Since MDA experimenting a lot with so-called “lottery bust players” which turnout to be a good players, if let’s say they traded Pau, perhaps MDA should try to sign Royce White.

    Yes, I know about his anxiety condition but I think Lakers could afford to give him the right treatment and support needed to help him.

    PG: Marshall
    SG: Henry
    PF: White

    He’s the same age as Henry and Marshall. Imagine we have 3 under-23 players. That’s a good start for rebuilding.

    • C*HarrisTHEboss

      None of those people play defense – even nate robinson torched Mr. Marshall

      • LakeShow

        As I recalled Nate torched Miami Heat in the playoff last year. What’s your point?

        • C*HarrisTHEboss

          That Marshall is awful on defense – Ty lawson also had 20 points. And Mario Chalmers is crap.

          • LakeShow

            For your information, Ty Lawson is one of the fastest players in NBA. Only few players capable of guarding him. That crap helped Heat win 2 back-to-back championship.

            Fine “genius”, who can Lakers sign at PG to replace Marshall who can play defense (realistic target)?

          • C*HarrisTHEboss

            You seem like a giant D-Bag (realistically) so i wont argue with you.

          • LakeShow

            Good! This giant D-Bag doesn’t want to argue with an A-Hole like you. Every time I saw you comment, all you do is criticizing others comment. When I asked you, who can Lakers sign (TWICE – I asked you few articles ago), you didn’t answer my question.

          • C*HarrisTHEboss

            Other people always seem to like my input. And i only criticize people with a clear agenda – rather than presenting a non-biased or jaded opinion. Your MO (Modus Operandi) is posting hella generic comments criticizing anybody BUT the Lakers – and are tantamount to plain flavored yogurt. Do me a favor – the next time you feel like commenting on one of my posts – dont.

          • That One guy

            Just going to point out the fact that you commented on his post.

          • C*HarrisTHEboss

            That didn’t mean he had to respond back like a jerk – and your snide comment has nothing to do with basketball – and thus – go fuck yourself.

          • Kyrah

            Hey d*ck wad

  • emfarfan

    Are you kidding me? The chance to dump Gasol’s huge and completely undeserved contract is a no brainer! How many games does he have to play without breaking a sweat or by getting pushed around by second string big men before Laker’s management gets it. Gasol for Bynum trade is a like for like with some real cost savings and hopefully some justice for the new players out there hustling every game, do it Mitch!

    • Jack

      Lakers given another way out to free them of that repeater tax, thus giving them spending power, and looks like they will shoot themselves in the foot and balk. Take the 2nd rounder and run with it. Pau has NO value. They held on to him way too long, though to be fair, they did trade him only to have it vetoed.

  • Brenny Ortega


  • Marty Susman

    How about sending Pau to the Grizzles for Curry & Franklin & a first round pick…Yes he might go their anyway next year BUT anything can happen between now & then plus Curry is in the D league & franklin is just so so & the pick is a big IF….Now another way might be, Randoff to the Pistons, Gasol to the Grizzles & Mornoe to the Lakers.

  • lro

    it is sad how Lakers want to trade s player aversging 15.6 points in just 30 minutes…what else he can do?

  • J Taylor

    Why does every trade that involves the Cavaliers fall through? It seems like they always add their name in the hat, and muck up things only to withdraw in the end?
    - Do they really intend to trade, or are they stirring up interest in their organization through Trade Rumors?
