Gasol moving?

Twitter going nuts right now with Pau Gasol rumors. Possible trade with the Rockets? Golden State? Lakers need to do something, but I'm hoping it's something smart. Get rid of Gasol and one of the best front lines in basketball is gone. They need a PG badly though. Line movement sure happened on the game tonight, Minny now a 1.5 favorite, and one book took the line down for a bit. Something must be going on.

I must be gettin' old... I still think baseball is cool.

Nothing yet. Reports are talks with the Rockets are on going. I do feel like they're going to move him. Too much money against the cap next year with him, Kobe, an Bynum. Kobe's salary really kills it, but what do you do, trade him? Not happening. They need to build around Bynum. He's looked good, and stayed healthy this year. I wouldn't give him up unless I could get Howard. I love Pau, but he's not what he was, and now is the time to move him if they're going to start rebuilding.

Seems like the Rockets have been hot for Gasol since the preseason. Not sure why, cant see a straight up deal between the two teams happening but maybe they are team that could help complete a three way deal

A three way deal could be the only way the Lakers get someone in return for Gasol worthy of fighting off team like the Clippers and Spurs for the championship run. Despite this team being in disarray contrary to how Brown has run the offense, he publicly apologized to Kobe, World Peace, and Barnes for questioning their shot selection after a win at Minnesota.

Gasol needs to continue playing like he has a chip on his shoulder. At this point I still think LA should keep him if they can't get anybody as an upgrade at the point. While Blake is back and healthy, give him more minutes over an aginig Fisher. You cant overlook a veteran who still gives you 17 points and 11 rebounds per night with Bynum down low as a solid defensive presence.
