Rumor: Lakers offered Gasol for Love?
Sources say the Lakers offered Paul Gasol to the T’Wolves for Kevin Love after the league canceled the Chris Paul trade. Wouldn’t you?
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Why not? The Los Angeles Lakers had nothing to lose, right?
Commissioner David Stern nixed the Chris Paul trade, so the Lakes again offered Pau Gasol to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love.
Not surprisingly, the Timberwolves said thanks but no thanks.
Love is younger than Gasol. Love is better than Gasol. And Love makes less money than Gasol.
The Timberwolves will only trade Love if he turns down a long-term extension. However, the 2011 rebounding champion is under contract for two more seasons and seems interested in staying.
Credit the Lakers for taking a shot at Love. It willl take more than Gasol, though.
