Pau Gasol

  1. Pau Gasol out Wednesday night for Lakers

    Feb 19, 2014, 2:58 PM EST

    Pau Gasol

    It was always a long shot anyway, but the idea of the Lakers trading big man Pau Gasol at the deadline — most likely to Phoenix, but there were other talks including with Charlotte — always seemed to have the caveat that other teams wanted to see him healthy and back on the court. Not…

  2. The Extra Pass: Five teams to watch closely as the trade deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2014, 7:59 AM EST

    Kenneth Faried

    With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

  3. Report: Lakers, Mavericks target Kevin Love in trade, “no way” Minnesota does that at deadline

    Feb 18, 2014, 5:59 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Minnesota Timberwolves

    When the Lakers talk about all that cap space they have, they are talking more about 2015 than 2014 (unless LeBron has a radical change of heart and wants to come West). The Lakers are known to covet Kevin Love. The Mavericks, Knicks and other teams also will target Love in 2015 when he can…

  4. Pau Gasol to Charlotte? That’s not likely, nor is any other Pau Gasol trade

    Feb 18, 2014, 12:34 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak is trying. He doesn’t want to lose Pau Gasol for nothing. The Lakers are talking to teams about moving Gasol at the trade deadline. However, finding a team that wants to rent a guy making $19.3 million (he is a free agent after this season) and give the Lakers anything of…

  5. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:16 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

  6. Another report it’s going to be a slow trading deadline

    Feb 17, 2014, 10:15 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    For the second year in a row, the trading deadline is shaping up to be more bust than boom. We’ve been passing along reports that as the Thursday (Feb. 20) trade deadline approaches the seas remain calm, and not in a “before the storm” kind of way. The latest is from Ken Berger at CBSSports.com…

  7. Pau Gasol acknowledges trade possibilities, but would prefer to remain with Lakers

    Feb 14, 2014, 10:15 AM EST

    Pau Gasol

    It’s been an unusually rough season for the Lakers, but even more so for four=time All-Star big man Pau Gasol. In addition to clashing with a second consecutive head coach over his role in the offense and dealing with multiple injury issues, the latest of which has him sidelined with a groin strain, Gasol has…

  8. There is zero chance the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, can we stop talking about it?

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:44 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    I’ve been surprised how often this has come up lately. During radio talk show interviews, in emails, I even had a friend ask me: Are the Knicks trading Carmelo Anthony? No. Not even close. I’m not sure how this delusion even became a talking point. Yes, the Knicks do know Anthony can opt out of…

  9. Minnesota’s Flip Saunders says strength of draft could dampen trade deadline

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:53 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves 2013 NBA Draft Picks Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng Introduced to the Media

    Last season’s trade deadline was a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing — it was a very slow trade deadline, the bigger deals having already happened. This season seems to be more active and with some bigger names — Pau Gasol could be moved, as potentially could guys like Greg Monroe. Names like Brandon…

  10. Kobe Bryant says he plans to return, play for Lakers this season

    Feb 10, 2014, 10:29 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Boston Celtics At TD Garden

    If the season ended today, the Lakers would have the seven or eight pick (they are tied with Cleveland, there would be a coin flip). They are also currently 12 games back of the eight seed and the playoffs in the West, ground they are not going to make up. Those facts have a lot…

  11. Report: Suns would have ‘serious interest’ in Rudy Gay if he becomes a free agent

    Feb 8, 2014, 5:00 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Houston Rockets

    Rudy Gay can become an unrestricted free agent this summer, should he choose to opt out of the final year of his contract which will pay him $19.3 million next season. The majority of players like to sign for as many guaranteed years as possible as soon as the option is available, both to secure…

  12. Lakers’ Nick Young injures knee, out at least two weeks

    Feb 6, 2014, 4:41 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    The Lakers, already far and away leading the NBA in man-games lost to injury, continue to pad that lead. Not that they want to. Just as they got pretty much their entire point guard rotation back from injury, they have lost Nick Young for at least two weeks with a “non-displaced fracture of the patella…

  13. Told by Lakers they’re dropping him, Manny Harris scores 19 points for Los Angeles

    Feb 5, 2014, 1:44 PM EST

    Manny Harris, Chuck Hayes, Patrick Patterson

    Steve Nash and Steve Blake returned for the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. Jordan Farmar should be back soon, too. So, it makes sense the Lakers wouldn’t re-sign Manny Harris. They’ve already signed him to two 10-day contracts, the second of which expires today, and they’d have to re-sign him for the rest of the…

  14. PBT Podcast: Talking Blazers, Clippers, coaches with Bill and Luke Walton, plus trade rumors

    Feb 5, 2014, 10:50 AM EST

    The Forum Grand Opening - Eagles Concert And After Party

    We’re baaaaack. After a brief Super Bowl hiatus, Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio and myself return with the PBT Podcast — and to welcome us back we have an interview with Hall of Famer Bill Walton and his son Luke. With them we discuss what it was like for Bill to win in Portland, the…

  15. Report: Suns halt Pau Gasol trade talks (for now), think Lakers asking too much

    Feb 4, 2014, 9:49 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Don’t be surprised if these talks start up again — part of the negotiation game is to walk away from the table if you can’t get the deal you want, then check back in a few days or weeks and see if positions have changed. However, for now, the Pau Gasol to the Suns trade…

  16. Steve Nash to return, start for Lakers Tuesday night against Minnesota

    Feb 4, 2014, 1:18 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    So much for that whole “easing him back in” thing… Steve Nash will not only be back and play for the Lakers on Tuesday night, he will start, coach Mike D’Antoni told the media, as reported by Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News. Nash will play the first 5-8 minutes of the game…

  17. Pau Gasol gets PRP injection, posts photo

    Feb 4, 2014, 12:20 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Never say Pau Gasol didn’t learn a few things from Kobe Bryant. Such as if you are injured it’s fine to post photos of you getting an injection. Kobe did it earlier this season, then late Monday night Gasol posted this: Gasol is out for the next week at least with a groin strain (he…

  18. Suns want to see Pau Gasol back from injury before escalating trade talks with Lakers

    Feb 4, 2014, 10:14 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    The Suns and Lakers engaged in preliminary trade talks on a deal centered around Pau Gasol over the weekend, and continued those discussions again on Monday. The primary holdup at this point (at least on the Suns’ side) appears to be the health of Gasol, who is expected to miss at least a week with a…

  19. Report: Sixers shopping Evan Turner around, not any takers yet

    Feb 3, 2014, 7:07 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Sacramento Kings

    Right now we are in the “there’s a lot of talking” phase of the trade season — the trade deadline is Feb. 20 and GMs around the league are trying to gauge the value of their players and see what other teams are asking for theirs. Names such as Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis in…

  20. Steve Nash listed as “probable,” expected to play for Lakers Tuesday

    Feb 3, 2014, 5:48 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Believe it or not, the Lakers are actually going to get some players healthy. Not Pau Gasol (out this week with a groin strain) no Kobe Bryant (out at least past the All-Star Game with his fractured knee) but they are getting Steve Nash and Steve Blake back. The pair of guards will be listed…

  21. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Adam Silver signs the balls, Kevin Durant keeps shooting them

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  22. Report: Phoenix Suns considering potential trade for Pau Gasol

    Feb 2, 2014, 6:20 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The Phoenix Suns have gotten solid production this season out of Miles Plumlee and rookie Alex Len at the center spot, but if you’re looking for a place they could upgrade at the trade deadline it would be a guy who can get them consistent points in the paint, especially come the playoffs when the…

  23. Lakers’ Pau Gasol to miss at least a week with groin strain

    Feb 1, 2014, 6:44 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    This Lakers season will be remembered more than anything as one that was completely lost due to a series of injuries to both stars and role players alike. Pau Gasol is the latest to return to the ranks of the injured, and after undergoing an MRI on Saturday, will miss a minimum of a week…

  24. Steve Nash could be back on court for Lakers next Tuesday

    Jan 31, 2014, 4:55 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash practiced on Thursday with no issues or setbacks, but will not suit up when the Lakers host the Charlotte Bobcats Friday night. However next Tuesday he could return. So could Steve Blake. That’s what Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said after shootaround on Friday. D'Antoni says injured Lakers PGs had no setbacks after Thursday…

  25. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…
