Lakers Rumors: Timberwolves Interested in Acquiring Pau Gasol

After a relatively uneventful NBA Draft for the Los Angeles Lakers (they did acquire Darius Johnson-Odom from Dallas), it’s on to the free agency and trade period. This is where the team is expected to make the most moves as they attempt to recover following their second straight season of being eliminated in the Western Conference Semi-Finals.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly interested in the Lakers’ main trade asset, Pau Gasol. According to CBS Sports, the T-Wolves are making a hard run at the 7-foot Spaniard, and are willing to part with Derrick Williams in the process.

Minnesota offered Derrick Williams in hopes of landing the second pick from the Bobcats to help get Gasol from the Los Angeles Lakers, two people with knowledge of the discussions told the Associated Press.

Obviously that deal didn’t go through, and the Bobcats kept the number two pick. But that hasn’t deterred Minnesota from trying to pry Gasol away from Los Angeles.

There is plenty of interest in Gasol, but whether or not the team ultimately moves him is still up in the air.
