Lakers Rumors: Nets Don’t Want Pau Gasol for Deron Williams

Earlier this week, it was reported that Deron Williams was open to a sign-and-trade deal with either the Dallas Mavericks or Los Angeles Lakers. Any trade involving the Lakers would most likely involve one of their two big men, either Pau Gasol or Andrew Bynum.

The Lakers, however, don’t want to lose Bynum, especially for a point guard. This leaves Gasol as the most viable option in the Lakers’ eyes to move for a player like Williams.

But, according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, New Jersey isn’t willing to part with Williams for the 7-foot Spaniard.

According to Bondy, the Nets would rather risk losing Williams and have the cap space than take on the bloated contract of an aging power forward. Logistically, that makes sense for New Jersey, especially since Gasol’s stock is dropping with the entire league knowing the Lakers might be trying to move him.

If a deal for Williams or another point guard doesn’t work out for Los Angeles, expect them to attempt to re-sign Ramon Sessions, who was traded to L.A. on last season’s trade deadline.
