NBA trade deadline
is Thursday, March 15th at 3 pm EST
One rumor out there on twitter is:
"It seems we'll soon be getting news that Gasol has been traded. No details confirmed, but he's apparently gone."
According to longtime NBA writer Roland Lazenby, the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets have agreed to a trade of Pau Gasol for Kyle Lowry and Luis Scola.
The Rockets and Warriors continue to be open to landing Howard in a rental deal, hoping they could persuade the All-Star center to stay beyond the six-week finale to the season. Houston, whose acquisition of Pau Gasol in the ill-fated trade that would've sent Chris Paul to the Lakers, also remains in hot pursuit of the Spaniard, sources say. So are the Timberwolves, who would like to pair Gasol with Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio. The Lakers, however, are unwilling to trade Gasol unless they get a comparable All-Star in return -- preferably one who could provide the guard penetration they're so sorely lacking.
