Lakers Rumors: Kevin Garnett, Pau Gasol Trade Possible?

It’s a new week, which means new trade rumors! Since the Lakers were once again defeated in the Western Conference Semi-Finals, big changes are expected to be on the horizon in Los Angeles.

The most recent rumor once again focuses on Pau Gasol and the Boston Celtics. If you may recall, the two were linked prior to last year’s trade deadline in a potential move involving Rajon Rondo. Now it seems they may have a different deal in mind.

If the Lakers are looking to move Gasol, Boston might be a destination that could handle his contract. Shaun Powell of NBA.com is reporting that the two sides could possibly make it work.

Maybe the Lakers? Garnett has a home in Malibu, and the Lakers have Kobe Bryant. What they don’t have is cap room, but that can be resolved if they agree to a sign and trade for Pau Gasol. The Lakers desperately want Gasol’s contract (three years, $60 million) off the cap and tried to trade him last summer. The Celtics, with only Pierce and Rondo making decent money, could take Gasol.

Gasol and Garnett are two players that have developed a fierce rivalry over the past four seasons, and were the focal point of two NBA Finals series in 2008 and 2010. But Garnett is one of the most hated players in Los Angeles, especially since joining the Celtics. Still, that hasn’t prevented other public enemies like Ron Artest and Matt Barnes from joining the team.

This may be an unlikely scenario for now, especially with Boston still contending in the Eastern Conference Finals. But there’s no question both teams will have moves to make once the season officially ends.
