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.
