Pau Gasol Trade Rumors Tracker: Recapping the Latest Buzz

The Los Angeles Lakers are 4-2 since the All-Star break, but the losses against Detroit and Washington are deeply concerning for this team.

One possible way to shake up the team and breathe some fresh air into a roster that seems to be on its last legs is to trade Pau Gasol.

The 31-year-old big man has helped the Lakers win two championships and make three finals appearances, but he hasn’t found a comfortable role in coach Mike Brown’s new system.

We are going to keep you updated with the latest trade rumors and chatter concerning the Lakers star up until the deadline, so keep it tuned here all week.

Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles wrote a piece on how Gasol doesn’t let the trade rumors bother him. But she also mentioned that the team is in talks with a team about a possible swap.

There were talks with the Houston Rockets in recent days, nothing became serious because the Lakers aren't inclined to move Gasol unless they can get an All-Star-caliber player in return, most likely a point guard.

LA is most likely interested in Kyle Lowry, but it would take more to pry Pau away from them. Expect Houston to ramp up their offer as the deadline draws nearer.

Houston is an intriguing team to trade with as they already landed Gasol in the offseason before commissioner David Stern nixed that blockbuster trade that would have seen Chris Paul in purple and yellow.
