Pau Gasol being chased by several teams

Published Add your comment

Pau Gasol is coming to the end of his time at the LA Lakers but he is still starring for the flagging former giants.

The forward's future with the Lakers is up in the air and has been rumoured about for some time, but as the end of the season gets nearer and nearer its looking more likely that he won't be in that famous purple and gold for too long.

It looked on the cards like he could be off before the trade deadline but no move materialised. 

In an piece on Sports Illustrated, Chris Mannix outlined what Gasol could be looking at if he does test free agency.

"Gasol, though, will have options. A poll of NBA executives on Gasol’s future returned many of the same answers: Chicago. Cleveland. Charlotte, if the Bobcats believe a Gasol-Al Jefferson front line can stop anybody. Memphis, if Zach Randolph opts out.

Even after a disappointing season — and with the understanding that Gasol has never been a strap-a-team-on-his-back kind of player — Gasol will be among the most sought after free agents on the market."

Gasol  is averaging 17.4 points a game this season, to go along with 9.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.5 blocks a contest, so should have his option open to him.
