Lakers big man Pau Gasol is once again at the center of attention in the rumor mill, especially with the NBA’s trade deadline fast approaching on February 20th. At Lakers practice on Tuesday, Gasol said he understands the possibility that he may get traded in the next couple of days, but also mentioned it would be tough for him to deal with.
“Might happen, who knows?” Pau Gasol responded to questions at the Lakers practice facility Tuesday about being traded. “If it ever happened, it would be tough.”
Gasol also admitted that should February 20th pass with him still a Laker, he will be looking forward to being in charge of his destiny in free agency. Though Gasol has recently voiced his desire to stay a Laker, he’ll be looking forward to the day where his future is somewhat in his own hands. The latest rumors pin the Phoenix Suns as the most likely destination spot for Gasol, but for now, it’s all talk.
