Another free agent contemplating their future is Pau Gasol. While addressing the media before his annual camp at UCSB, Kobe Bryant chimed in on his thoughts about the decisions of both Anthony and Gasol. Gasol’s choice could be aided by the one Anthony chooses, according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

Gasol will be entering his 14th year in the NBA after spending the six and half season with the Lakers. While the Lakers would like to bring Gasol back, he has been considering playing for the Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs, or Oklahoma City Thunder next season as he seeks another opportunity to gain an NBA title.

Of course, everything could change should Anthony come to Los Angeles. The addition of Anthony to the lineup is likely to improve Gasol’s chances of returning to the Lakers. Even if Anthony decides to remain in New York, Gasol’s picture will become clearer. In that scenario, Gasol re-signing with the Lakers might need be on option, but shouldn’t be ruled out due to his close friendship with Bryant.

Regardless, once Anthony figures out where he wants to play, other dominoes will begin to fall, including Gasol and his future.
