Lakers Trade Rumors: Team Asking Too Much For Pau Gasol?

Over the last few years or so, Pau Gasol has been on the trading block for the Los Angeles Lakers. All sorts of trade scenarios involving big-name players coming to Los Angeles like Chris Paul, Kevin Love, Rajon Rondo, David Lee and Carlos Boozer have been mentioned, but nothing has come to fruition.

Despite the endless trade speculation, Gasol is still a Laker and that may continue to be the case until he becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer. According to Larry Coon of Basketball Insiders, the Lakers might be asking too much in return for Gasol’s services:

“But there are no more Bynum-like deals to be had before the February trade deadline, so at best, Kupchak is looking at accomplishing the second goal but not the first. That may not be enough to get him to pull the trigger on a deal. I think it’s now fairly likely that Gasol remains a Laker for the remainder of the season.”

With less than a month until the Feb. 2 NBA trade deadline, the Lakers may continue to gauge trade interest in Gasol around the league. It remains uncertain at this point in time if the Lakers can get anything of value in return for Gasol, but it’s likely Mitch Kupchak and company will continue to try and move him in the coming weeks.

One potential destination has already been crossed off the list for the two-time NBA champion with the Memphis Grizzlies having no interest in reacquiring him in a trade. Even though a trade is out of the question in terms of sending Gasol back to Memphis, the veteran forward may simply sign with his former team in the off-season if the Grizzles are willing to bring him back.
