Pau Gasol now coming off bench for Lakers
Gasol has two years left on his contract, worth $38.3 million. Though he became the subject of many trade rumors last year following the nixed Chris Paul deal, Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said last week not to expect the front office to become "active" leading up to the Feb.21 trade deadline.
Shipping Gasol could also be troublesome because of the possibility Dwight Howard bolts once he becomes a free agent this offseason.
