Rumor Has It: Pau Gasol Being Traded
If we are to believe the "whispers" in the NBA, the Los Angeles Lakers are about to lose Pau Gasol from their not-so-winning lineup.
A Tweet by author Roland Lazenby points to what many see as inevitable:
It seems we'll soon be getting news that Gasol has been traded. No details confirmed, but he's apparently gone.— Roland Lazenby (@lazenby) March 9, 2012
Lazenby followed that up with a caveat of sorts:
Considering the Chris Paul fiasco, it's good to remind that nothing is official. Only whispers, but it's a whispering NBA world these days— Roland Lazenby (@lazenby) March 9, 2012
There has been much talk of trading when it comes to Gasol; Houston has been courting the Spaniard, notes CBS2. In exchange, Houston may send Kyle Lowry and Luis Scola to L.A.

The Lakers are wrapping up in Minnesota tonight, and are headed to Boston Sunday.
