Lakers Rumors: Lakers Not Looking To Re-Sign Pau Gasol

The end of Pau Gasol’s time with the Los Angeles Lakers may be drawing near. Apparently, the four-time All-Star is starting to rub people in the Lakers organization the wrong way. Gasol recently sitting out multiple games due to an upper respiratory infection has turned a lot of heads with many believing the writing is already on the wall in Los Angeles in terms of Gasol’s future with the team.

Longtime Lakers beat writer and current Lakers writer and NBA national columnist for Bleacher Report, Kevin Ding, is convinced the Lakers will not re-sign Gasol after this season. In an appearance on ESPN 710 radio Monday morning, Ding said the following about Gasol’s current situation with the Lakers:

Pau is in a situation where the Lakers are not going to bring him back barring a miracle. From what I understand, it’s just not happening under any circumstances.

Clearly, Ding’s sources have led him to believe that the relationship between Gasol and the Lakers is coming to a close. Next, the real question becomes whether the Lakers ship him out in a trade before the deadline on Feb. 20 or simply let him walk in free agency in July.

Despite the reports of Gasol no longer being on the trading block, the team recently gauged interest from the Brooklyn Nets for a potential swap for center Brook Lopez. The Nets weren’t interested in the deal, but that might’ve been a blessing for the Lakers with the veteran going down for the season shortly after due to a foot injury.

With the recent negative backlash as a result of sitting out with the respiratory infection, Gasol may continue to be shopped by the team. Considering the Lakers current record and all the injuries, the team may ship him out before the deadline.
