Lakers Rumors: A Pau Gasol For Zach Randolph Trade With Grizzlies?

111213 Pau 300x199 Lakers Rumors: A Pau Gasol For Zach Randolph Trade With Grizzlies?NBA.com’s Sam Smith suggested that the Los Angeles Lakers trade Pau Gasol to the Memphis Grizzlies as the rebuilding continues and the season off to a 3-5 start.

An excerpt from his article which suggests that the Lakers take Zach Randolph back in return:

“Trading for Pau actually saves them money in the long run. And as Memphis has made no secret their future core is to build around Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, a return could invigorate Pau and put him as a second or third option where he is more comfortable. And out of the pressure of L.A.

Randolph, meanwhile, would be a strong piece for Kobe Bryant as he’s younger and more productive than Pau. And better for the Lakers to save the money for future free agent classes, which will be better than this summer’s.”

But Smith is forgetting about Randolph’s $16.93 million player option for 2014-15. Meanwhile Pau becomes a free agent in July.

The likelihood of this happening? Slim to none.

Pau is more likely to end up in Memphis through free agency.
