Lakers Rumors: Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum Talks Heating Up

PauGasolThe trade talks between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly heating up. After rumors that the team was talking about a Pau Gasol for Andrew Bynum swap that would save the Lakers nearly $20 million in cap space, reports surfaced that the talks had stalled.

Now those reports have been overturned.

According to an alert from ESPN, things between L.A. and Cleveland are getting closer to reality.

Lakers, Cavs make progress on trade that would involve Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum, according to sources.

There was another report from Brian Windhorst that the two teams made progress today, and that the Cavs want the deal done tomorrow.

It might be a vague rumor, but it’s something. If the Lakers did manage to re-acquire Bynum for Gasol, there would likely be a major salary dump, including Bynum, in an effort to free up more cap space for the future. There might also be a pick or low-end player heading to Los Angeles, too, but so far that hasn’t been reported.

We’ll keep you posted as more information comes in, but for now at least it seems that Gasol might finally be headed out of Hollywood.
