With the Los Angeles Lakers trading for Jeremy Lin and re-signing Nick Young and Jordan Hill, the roster is beginning to take shape. However, it appears Pau Gasol is likely moving on after turning down a two-year, $20 million offer according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski:

Earlier today, Gasol tweeted he was very close to a decision and thanked everyone for their interest and support. While there was a strong possibility the two-time champion would re-sign if the Lakers landed Carmelo Anthony, it appears he is headed to the San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, or Oklahoma City Thunder.

After these past couple of seasons, Gasol has been the ultimate professional through all the trade rumors. While he may not retire in a Lakers uniform, he is still one of the best offensive big men in the league and will look to finish the final years of his career with more championships.
