Lakers Rumors & Recaps: Josh Smith for Pau Gasol?

The Los Angeles Lakers can’t seem to shake all the trade rumors and speculation with two-time NBA champion Pau Gasol at the center of it all once again.

Talks of a trade with the Atlanta Hawks has begun to circulate in Los Angeles with the Lakers possibly dangling Gasol in an attempt acquire Josh Smith. With Smith’s ties to Dwight Howard and the fact that he’s much younger and more athletic than Gasol, it’s possible the Lakers may indeed be pursuing the 26-year-old as a potentially better fit for the fast-paced offense that head coach Mike D’Antoni intends to run.

This isn’t the first time this particular trade rumor has circulated, with Gasol for Smith heating up heading towards the NBA trade deadline last season and surfacing again over the off-season. Gasol has been mentioned in numerous trade rumors in many different scenarios, but none have come to fruition as of yet.

It remains to be seen if Smith is truly on the team’s radar moving forward, but it won’t be surprising to see this rumor continue to circulate if Gasol struggles in D’Antoni’s system.
