Tommy DeeYesterday I spoke to league source who said that the Lakers were, in fact, working on a deal to trade Pau Gasol. Of course, based on many factors, I wondered if the Knicks were involved in the discussions. From the sounds of it based on who I’ve talked to since then including this morning, they are not engaged in discussions.
What we do know about Mike D’Antoni is that he is a fan of “his players”… he tried to get Raja Bell here during his tenure, tried to make Nate Robinson into Leandro Barbosa, tried to entice Grant Hill and of course we know about Amar’e Stoudemire.
There’s a lot to it and as we’ve said before I’m sure the Lakers can find a better trade partner.
So for the time being it appears we can put to rest the idea of Gasol coming to The Big Apple.
