Link to the Present: Gasol Trade Talk Progressing

Pau Gasol, Anderson Varejao

According to Brian Windhorst and Ramona Shelburne, talks between the Lakers and Cavs are ongoing, with a trade hoped for today.  There have also been discussions between the Cavs and Jazz, about Richard Jefferson.

If the Cavs include an asset to get Gasol, it better be a second round draft pick.  Anything else would be a pretty big panic move to receive a 33-year old, half year rental.

 

Update: Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Cavs will not be including Dion Waiters as the extra “asset” in any trades for Gasol.

Are you kidding me?
