Pau Gasol: Lakers To Offer Juan Carlos Navarro A Contract
 
http://www.lequipe.fr/Basket/breves2...aux-bleus.html

Navarro could play with the Lakers if he gets an interesting offer, as per implied by Gasol.

Not me. I like how committed you are. I don't know how valid this is though, the translation is spotty. It would be great if they do offer him a contract, he plays well with Pau.

Well, he didn't say "he will join the Lakers", just that he would need a good offer from them. So he didn't really state what Navarro would do.

But since they have been best friends since they were kids, I assume he would know.

LA is a lot different than Memphis. Plus he would be playing with Pau and he would be a perfect fit with the Lakers.

So, I could see it if the money was right. But I believe his salary with Barcelona is equal to about $7.5 million per season in the NBA. So between that, and his huge buyout, he would need to get a pretty good offer from the Lakers.

But maybe Barca would let him out of his buyout, considering all he has done for them. Hard to say.

This is exactly why I don't see it.

Why would the Lakers offer him a contract when:

a) no one knows when the lockout will end
b) if there will be a hard cap/luxury tax/etc/etc.

Maybe it is stated in the article, but I seriously doubt **any** NBA franchise is making a pitch for **any** FA right now.

Does this mean that Kobe will be traded ? :cry:

He obviously meant after the lockout, not now. He said "he will need a good offer" from the Lakers, not that he is getting it now. He obviously meant after the lockout is over.

So he clearly meant for next season.

Well it is definitely Pau's speculation and not from the Lakers. Because Pau has no idea what the new terms will be when the lockout ends.

And besides the cap situation, the new head coach Mike Brown might want to go in a different direction as the backup PG/SG.

They probably would not offer him enough money anyway.

If it materialises, would it mean JCN would play point?
